NPR runs pro-witchcraft piece – The occult today is ‘as trendy and as helpful as veganism or yoga’ | Blaze Media
“This may surprise you,” says Glenn Beck sarcastically, but “witches are real” and they’re “liberal politically.”
NPR recently ran what Glenn calls “a fluff piece” on witches and the religion of witchcraft.
“Witches have long cast a spell on American entertainment, but they aren’t just a figment of our imagination. Witchcraft is a real practice, and people who practice witchcraft are all around you,” the NPR segment began.
The show goes on to interview American writer Diana Helmuth, who devoted a year of her life to exploring witchcraft.
It was “month seven before I tried to make a connection with the goddess,” whether she is “a real deity up in the sky” or “a metaphor for the interconnectedness of everything on Earth,” Helmuth explained.
“So I go and I set up this ritual to try and talk to a particular goddess,” and after “sitting in front of an altar that I made” for “about an hour, something happened – I just suddenly felt flooded with bliss,” she recounted.
“My initial reaction to this NPR story was a little eye-rolling,” admits Glenn. “Of course, NPR is on the side with witches.”
However, it’s also quite scary. “There are supposedly, according to NPR, more witches than Presbyterians,” says Glenn, and “USA Today claims … that ‘hip witchcraft’ is on the rise in the U.S.”
“You’ll find articles on witchcraft all throughout the liberal media,” says Glenn, but unlike the past, when people knew terms like “the occult” meant bad news, today’s society seems to be fascinated with the world of witchcraft.
It shouldn’t surprise you to find out that people who practice witchcraft usually run in the woke crowd.
“Witchcraft is especially popular among … transgender activists,” says Glenn, citing an academic article. He quotes:
‘Contemporary paganism portrays gender in an array of different ways and, as such, is very inclusive of sexual diversity. Much of this phenomena happens through what pagans call witchcraft. But how does witchcraft help queer and transgender pagans take part in the pagan community?”
“I looked it up,” says Glenn, and according to online sources, “witchcraft [is] an inclusive movement,” which “is seeing a resurgence among queer-identified young people seeking a powerful identity that celebrates the freedom to choose who you are.”
“Here’s what unites all of them – witches, leftists, transgender activists, NPR, the liberal media,” explains Glenn. They’re “fighting for relevance … they pester, they annoy, they shock or try to shock, in a bid to get attention,” but they “lose their power when people stop watching them or stop caring.”
