Since President Donald Trump took the oath of office last year, devastated liberals have blamed him for everything they perceive is wrong in the world — but the latest accusation may take the cake as the craziest yet. A recent Los Angeles Times article even goes so far as to hold the President responsible for the apparent rising popularity of Satanism.
August Brown, the author of the piece, feels feminists and the disenfranchised are especially embracing the occult due to Trump’s divisiveness.
Referring to practicing Satanists in Los Angeles, Brown said, “Given the never-ending chaos in American life, when nuclear war seems to many to be just one juvenile presidential tweet away, a coterie of artists are rediscovering Satanism’s imagery and rituals in a city with a long, rich and weird history of contrarian philosophies.”
The author portrays the kingdom of darkness as a force of empowerment and an innocent, harmless vehicle for expressing rebellion and popular culture. The article outlines a satanic ritual performed in November of 2017 by married couple Alexandra and Zachary James in the dimly lit basement of their house in Los Angeles.
As she was being watched by about a dozen friends, Alexandra James joined her husband at an altar containing a bleached human skull. At the altar, Ms. James raised a sword and sketched points crossways on her husband’s chest. With organ music playing in the background, Alexandra addressed the group by proclaiming, “On this altar we consecrate swords to direct the fire of our unholy will” and “A human skull, symbol of death. The great mother Lilith created us all, and will destroy us all.” The fired up crowd chanted, “Hail Satan! Hail Satan! Hail Satan.”
A few hours after the ritual, the assembly heard the shocking news that convicted murderer Charles Manson had died. Instead of grieving the man associated with Satanism, the group celebrated his passing by drinking a few beers and enjoying some psych rock songs. One attendee joked about the possibility of Manson’s spirit being reincarnated as a small dog, and the likelihood that she’d end up adopting it. The atypical lightheartedness of the evening seemed to help persuade the author of the Los Angeles Times piece that the increasing allegiance to Satan is simply an unusual show of “doctrinal disputes, favoring inclusivity, especially for women, often the losers in both traditional religion and radical politics.”
Brown appears to rationalize, or even encourage, participation in the occult for those who vigorously oppose Trump. News reports suggest thousands of witches around the world are casting a spell on the president each month in order to prevent him from carrying out harmful and destructive acts. The monthly spell, which was initiated in February of 2017, has apparently become a global sensation. Vicky Adams is the owner of an occult store in Hollywood, California. In recent months, she’s been swamped with people desperate to learn more about the spell and purchase the necessary ingredients to carry it out. One of the ridiculous, coveted ingredients is an orange candle, which mocks the President’s rumored fake tan.
Due to Trump’s very public endorsements of Judeo-Christian values, the new converts to Satanism highlighted in the Los Angeles Times piece will likely remain furious with him for the long-haul. In December of 2017, the President boldly declared that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. During the recent White House tree-lighting event, Trump reiterated to Americans that Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. At the ceremony, the President said, “For Christians, this is a holy season, a celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” He went on to state, “The Christmas story began 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son, and the most extraordinary gift of all – the gift of God’s love for all of humanity.”
When he addressed attendees at the Values Voter Summit in October of 2017, Trump put religious liberty at the forefront of his speech.
“In America, we don’t worship government – we worship God,” the president said. “Religious liberty is enshrined in the very first amendment of the Bill of Rights. And we all pledge allegiance to … one nation under God. This is America’s heritage, a country that never forgets that we are all are – all, every one of us – made by the same God in Heaven.”
