After much careful consideration, I have decided to separate the things I write that are politically charged from the things I write and post to the blog The Feisty Witch. It seems that too many of those who call themselves Witch, Wiccan or Pagan have an issue with me posting political things, and feel that I as Witch should just be complacent and not get my panties in a bunch over things like women’s rights, marriage equality or even the election of my government representatives. They seem to feel it’s a foregone conclusion and we just have to “deal with it”. That is NEVER going to happen in my world.
I will be adding to this page over the next few days, letting everyone know what my hopes and dreams are. Be warned … I have a voice and I’m not afraid to use it!
So, consider this your invitation to follow along and let’s make some changes!!
This was posted to Facebook this morning and has gotten quite a few shares and comments. I’m adding a snippet here with the link to the original post. I just want to say I LOVE Melissa McEwan!
Dear People Demanding to Know Why Hillary Clinton Isn’t Doing Whatever It Is You Think She Needs to Be Doing in This Moment:
Hillary Clinton doesn’t owe you a goddamned thing.
Hillary Clinton ran for president. She ran despite a hideous game of cajoling her to run, only to shame her for running. She ran despite the fact that the media has treated her like garbage for decades; despite knowing they would treat her like garbage again—which they did. She ran despite knowing, as keenly as any other woman in the country and more than most, the hellscape of vicious misogyny that would be unleashed against her. She ran despite the fact that she knew, should she win, she would face Republican obstructionism and vitriol so vast and relentless that it would take a tenacious beast to govern. She ran knowing she would have to be that tenacious beast, and could be.
