The spread of witchcraft in the United States continues under the Trump presidency. Over centuries, magic, and in particular witchcraft, has developed as a form of political protest.
The Women’s March is now entering the fray, calling on activists to rally by “casting spells and casting votes.”
Per CBN News:
According to the Activist Mommy website, during last week’s off-year elections, the Women’s March official Twitter account called on its supporters to “cast spells” in order to “fight the patriarchy any way” they can.
“It’s #ElectionDay! All power to the people, all people to the polls. If you’re eligible, get out there and VOTE,” the ultra-leftist group tweeted. The image with that tweet said it all.

Witchcraft has been steadily on the rise in the US since the 1990s. Trinity College in Connecticut tracked witchcraft’s prevalence for some 18 years. Researchers found that in 1990, there were an estimated 8,000 Wiccans in the US. That number grew to 340,000 in 2008.
The Pew Research Center later discovered in 2014 that 0.4% of Americans, or about 1 to 1.5 million people, identify as Wicca or Pagan.
