Since Code Pink and Berkeley’s City Council have already become a laughingstock, why not become even more of one? The witches of Code Pink have taken to wearing pointed witch hats and casting spells at the USMC Recruiting Station in Berkeley. They claim this is their Mother’s Day celebration. As in Happy Mother’s Day Baba Yaga.
The women’s anti-war group has told ralliers to come equipped with spells and pointy hats Friday for “witches, crones and sirens” day, the last of the group’s weeklong homage to Mother’s Day.
“Women are coming to cast spells and do rituals and to impart wisdom to figure out how we’re going to end war,” Zanne Sam Joi of Bay Area Code Pink told FOXNews.com.
I remember a day I spent in Berkeley about 15 years ago, after spending more than my budget at the terrific Dark Carnival bookstore, walking around and being surprised by all the new age bookstores, tarot readers, and magic shops. By magic shops I do not mean stage magic but sorcery, thaumaturgy, and ceremonial magick. Llewellyn Books was located on the main street in Berkeley. There were plenty more places like it. In short, it was apparent that the residents of Berkeley had a tenuous grasp on reality and preferred to live in their fantasy world of magic spells and good intentions wedded to ineffective or destructive means of carrying them out.
