I can’t help laughing about this recent interview on Fox news with the “Oracle of Los Angeles’
It shows perfectly how deeply embedded prejudices and misconceptions about witches are in the United States.
Rather than asking real questions, a good starter would be “what do you believe?”, the news host, Tucker Carlson, jumps right in with “Sincere question: is eye of newt an actual ingredient?”
Luckily, Amanda Yates Garcia is a credit to the witches of America. She tosses the question aside and attempts to bring the conversation back to real issues like North Korea, immigration, and student debt.
Later on Carlson asks Garcia about the recent monthly binding spell on Trump. She gives a well thought out and formulated answer about the power of intention, will, and trying to prevent the harmful policies of the president.
Carlson, again, shows a complete and utter lack of understanding when he says:
“Most people just go ahead and vote or, like, buy a t-shirt…Is this legal? Can you run around and cast spells? Are you allowed to cast spells on people? Is there any federal regulation of this?”
Here’s some food for thought Tucker, is praying for someone legal? Is there any jurisdiction about that? Because it’s essentially the same thing.
So from all of us pagans, witches, heathens, and nature lovers. A sincere heartfelt, thank you to Amanda! You showed that we are concerned citizens doing our best to take social action for just causes! You are one boss witch!
