"We bind you Donald from doing harm, harm against others and harm against yourself"


As you may know from your Facebook event invites, witches and pagans and probably lots of other people have been gathering once a month since Donald Trump's inauguration in order to cast binding spells on him.

Noted Death Eater and obvious Slytherin Tucker Carlson has been hoping to get one of them on his show for quite some time, and finally got witch and "Oracle of Los Angeles" Amanda Yates Garcia to agree to an interview.

It was... well, it was very interesting:

Before we get into this: I do not watch Tucker Carlson a lot. Does he always do that confused Labrador face when interviewing people or was this a special occasion?

[Ed note: Yes, Robyn. He does. Please see below.]

In the interview, Garcia explained that what they were doing was casting a binding spell on Donald Trump, like how they did to Fairuza Balk in The Craft, in hopes of preventing him from doing harm.

Presented with this information, Carlson was quite incredulous, and oddly surprised that this was not against the law to do.

"Is this legal? Can you run around casting spells on... Are you allowed to cast spells on people? Is there any kind of federal regulation on this?"

Constitutional scholar that he is, you'd think that Tucker would know that there hasn't been any legal regulation of witchcraft on these shores since before the American Revolution. Because of that whole thing in the Constitution about Freedom of Religion and what have you. Prior to that, the legality of witchcraft was really left up to the individual colony -- for instance, it was legal to practice witchcraft in Rhode Island because founder Roger Williams was not a fan of telling people what religion they were allowed to be.

Also, as I recall, legal regulations did not work out so well for Massachusetts.

Carlson then went on to ask Garcia if "eye of newt" -- as mentioned in the famous Shakespearian documentary, Macbeth -- was a real ingredient in spells.

Garcia was not here for that:

“I think the real problem is not whether or not eye of newt is an actual ingredient. The real problem is we’re about to have some kind of big nuclear extravaganza with North Korea. The real problem is that we’re punishing immigrant children. The real problem is that we’re causing students to go into deep debt. I don’t think the real problem is whether or not we use eye of newt.”

Perhaps fearing for the sanctity of a certain Gingrich's eyesight, Carlson pressed on, forcing Garcia to explain to him that Shakespeare, being Shakespeare and not Ken Burns, probably took a bit of "poetic license" with that bit.

The bonus here is that Carlson appears to actually believe that casting spells on people is possible, so perhaps these groups should consider adding some spells against twerpy Fox News anchors to their repertoire.

In this increasingly polarized society we live in, it's hard to find any kind of consensus on anything -- but one would think that there would still be a few things here and there that we could all agree upon. One also might assume that one of those things would be "drinking bleach is a bad idea."

But if one were to do that, they would be wrong. Because the Genesis II Church is holding a seminar today in Washington State in order to promote the use of a substance they call "Miracle Mineral Solution," which they consider a miracle cure for every disease on earth, and which the FDA and anyone who can read ingredients would consider "industrial bleach."

This past November, far right dingbat Laura Loomer was finally kicked off of Twitter after tweeting a bunch of crazy ass hateful shit about Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. To put it mildly, she was not happy about it. In fact, she kind of lost her fucking mind (what was left of it anyway) and ended up handcuffing herself to Twitter headquarters in order to protest the ban. She's been yelling about it ever since -- though since she's not on Twitter, few have even noticed.

Filled with desperation and with nowhere else left to turn, she is bringing her case to court and suing Twitter in hopes that a judge and jury will force the social media company to give her back her account so that she can continue to use it to scream horrible things about Muslim people all day long. This is what she is currently doing on Instagram, where she just recently went on a charming rant all about how much she hates Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar (yes, again), stating that Islam is a "cancer" and that "Muslims should not be allowed to seek positions of political office in this country. It should be illegal."

With statements like that, it is hard to believe that Twitter, or anyone, for that matter, would not be thrilled to have a normal human person like Laura Loomer on their site.
