The NRA blog is claiming that anti-gun witches are hurling curses at them and they’re playing the victim of hateful attacks on their rights.
Unsurprisingly, the reality is a little less Harry Potter and a little more nature and peace. The Wild Hunt, a news and commentary site for “modern pagans” posted links to a documentary that depicted practicing pagans doing a binding ritual to protect the world from the NRA and President Donald Trump.
Paganism focuses on natural aspects of faith and can be used to describe anything from Shamanism, practiced primarily by Indigenous communities, or Wiccans. David Salisbury, who identifies as “an activist Witch with a social justice bent,” is seen in an apartment with a group doing a binding ritual.
The project is part of an ongoing #BindTrump cause for those who joined the Magic Resistance.
Filmmaker Patrick J. Foust explained that he “felt like the whole world came crashing down around us” on election night. “I saw the Trump Tower binding,” he told Wild Hunt, “and realized there was this tremendous opportunity to tell a story about how this election of Donald Trump has affected spiritual beings, affected all of us really.”
At one point in the documentary, Salisbury condemns the “charged climates of hatred specifically from the last presidential election” and “literal Nazis marching the streets.”

White House leaked ‘insane letter’ to Fox host — that makes Trump look ridiculously ‘dumb’
President Donald Trump was ridiculed on Wednesday after a letter was leaked that President Donald Trump sent to Turkish President Recep Erdo?an.
The letter was sent a week ago, on October 9th.
A copy of the letter, where Trump warned Erdo?an not to be a fool, was obtained by Fox Business personality Trish Regan.
Commentary on the letter was swift -- and brutal.
Here's some of what people were saying:
Can’t tell if parody of dumb guy trying to cover his tracks or real dumb guy who is covering tracks
‘You can buy the USA’ thanks to Trump: Counterintelligence expert
Counterintelligence expert Malcolm Nance said during a political discussion Wednesday that the United States of America has clearly become a "pay-to-play" nation under President Donald Trump.
"After 2016, it became clear that the only thing we were really going to look into was Donald Trump's relationships with Moscow.," Nance said in a discussion with SiriusXM Progress host Dean Obeidallah.
"But I think it became pretty clear to the oligarchs that they weren't going after the oligarchs, they were going after Donald Trump and a very specific link to foreign intelligence," continued Nance. "And that meant their money could talk again. You have to understand, these people were doing it to lift these crippling sanctions that Trump fought tooth and nail against."
Growing chorus of Senate Republicans rebuke Trump over his Syria pullout
In the wake of President Trump's decision to pull US troops out of northeast Syria, a growing chorus of Senate Republicans are dismissing Trump's threat of economic sanctions against Turkey if it continues its incursion into the region, the Washington Examiner reports.
According to Sen. John Thune (R-SD), attempts to apply meaningful sanctions on Turkey after Trump green lit its invasion are just politicians "grasping to come up with something," adding that the Trump's decision "was a mistake" from the beginning.
