The Witches Are Back, This Time They’re After Kavanaugh
Brooklyn Witches Plan a Public ‘Hexing’ of Justice Brett Kavanaugh This Weekend
Raging individuals want revenge on a ‘patriarchy’ that ’emboldens, rewards and protects’ people they call ‘rapists’
If what Brett Kavanaugh had to endure to become a member of the nation’s highest court did not feel like enough of a witch hunt, a group of witches in New York City are hoping to get their revenge on the now-Supreme Court associate justice.
On Saturday, October 20, a group of witches in Brooklyn, New York, are hosting an event titled “Ritual to Hex Brett Kavanaugh” — and are selling tickets to it on Eventbrite. Catland Books, the host of the event, describes itself on its website as “Brooklyn’s premiere occult bookshop and spiritual community space.”
The event page says that the group will hex “all rapists and the patriarchy which emboldens, rewards and protects them.” They make it clear their primary target is Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“He will be the focal point, but by no means the only target, so bring your rage and all of the axes you’ve got to grind,” the event description reads. “There will also be a second ritual afterward — ‘The Rites of the Scorned One,’ which seeks to validate, affirm, uphold and support those of us who have been wronged and who refuse to be silent any longer.”
Dakota Bracciale is apparently the organizer of the event — and she told Time magazine her motivation was to do “an act of resistance” in response to Kavanaugh’s confirmation earlier this month.
“It’s about having space for survivors of sexual assault who are not going to be silent and who don’t want Brett Kavanaugh to serve as a symbol of defeat,” she said.
Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo weighed in Wednesday night on “The Ingraham Angle” about the absurdity of the hexing event and shared thoughts about it with Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
“I wish I were making this up,” Arroyo said of the event. “They’re saying the downtrodden and disadvantaged have always used magic.”
“I think Brett Kavanaugh needs a few novenas to protect him from the witches’ wrath,” he later added. “And in their tradition of terrorizing children, 25 percent of the money will go to Planned Parenthood — so they’re being consistent witches.”
“Satan lives,” Ingraham added.

Anyone wishing to attend the anti-Kavanaugh event will need to cough up $10 to get in the door. Half the proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood and the Ali Forney Center, an LGBT community center in New York City.
Some 60 people are expected to attend the event, USA Today and other outlets have reported, but far more have signed up, apparently; the event may also be livestreamed over the internet. The hexing ritual will feature effigies, coffin nails, graveyard dirt — even a spell. Bracciale told Newsweek those in attendance will essentially be “Antifa Witches.”
“There are a lot of angry people who are righteously filled with rage that are going to take back our country,” she declared.
A California psychologist, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault against her some 36 years ago when the two were both teenagers. However, holes in Ford’s story and the lack of any corroborating evidence whatsoever hindered her credibility; ultimately, the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh on October 6.
While this “hexing” event in Brooklyn grabs some national attention, it’s far from the first one the bookstore has held. Last year, Catland Books held three hexings directed specifically toward President Donald Trump.
