Feminists have a new style to fight back against President Donald Trump. Mainly, they’re all becoming witches. At least, that’s what one Breitbart writer belief, according to a new feature story published by Breitbart Tech.
In reporter Charlie Nash’s piece “# MagicResistance: The Rise of Feminist Witchcraft ,” he argues being a feminist and has become a witch has become “intertwined,” with” an increase in political mass hexes” against President Trump. Why? That’s partly because Lana Del Rey joined a coven to hex the president.
” Following President Trump’s inauguration, witches, covens, and even -Alist celebrities started to hex the president with frequent’ spells, ‘” Nash wrote in the feature tale.” Maybe witchcraft was only a excuse for feminists to pretend to be Hogwarts students from their beloved Harry Potter series .”
Nash afterward went on Breitbart Radio to argue the degree, chatting with Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow. Opening the segment, Marlow went on to say the narrative was ” altogether backed up and verified ,” after which Nash said he does believe magical feminists are growing in recent years.
” If you look at some of the photos, some of them have these genuinely elaborated altars and tables with candles and pentagrams and all sorts of other weird imagery ,” Nash explained to Marlow.” Also, there’s a picture of the president or Don, Jr ., whoever they want to hex .”
Nash likewise should be pointed out that, based on his discussions with a adherent for the Church of Satan from Anton LaVey, that the occult is on the rise once again through feminists.
” I think it’s definitely a reality that occultism is becoming an increasing thing under Trump ,” he said, adding,” It’s triggered and triggering. They like to trigger other people with their sorcery giggling .”
The Daily Dot reached out to both Nash and Breitbart Tech’s Allum Bokhari for comment and is awaiting a response. Meanwhile, Nash’s beliefs have gone viral, with feminists voicing the alarm after Breitbart ultimately learned the truth about third-wave feminism.

Some are hearing Nash’s name for the first time. And Breitbart Tech’s, too.
Couldn’t really get past “Breitbart tech reporter.”

Are feminists actually becoming witches, though? Well, Nash’s story actually outlines on a piece for the Baffler from Laurie Penny, who argues witchcraft is” back in vogue “ and that witchery has a “proud legacy” for” revolutionary terminates .” Rather, magic and the occult become ways to comprehend power.
” We live in a world where the nature and practise of power–cultural, political, and economic–is deliberately obscure and occluded, where truth is a moveable sum that can be shaped according to the whims of the mighty, assisted by types of technology that we are told are too advanced for our peasant brains to comprehend ,” Penny writes.” Resistance movements seek to change the histories of power, and what else is a witch but a break point in that narrative ?”
While some feminists surely believe in sorcery and the occult, and many feminists do practise magic in a religion sense, others are simply embracing witchery for the aesthetic. Since feminism is a gigantic movement with different decentralized niches and groups, it’s pretty difficult to claim that every single feminist is becoming a witch.
So no, feminists aren’t literally becoming witches. They’re just making witchcraft chill again. And hexing the president while they’re at it.
