This Was Probably Inevitable

“Dark psychic forces,” you might say:

A group of supporters of 2020 White House hopeful and Marianne Williamson has put together an “occult task force” in support of the spiritual guru; however, her campaign is none too pleased about the move.
In an interview with the Washington Post, the anonymous individual heading up the “task force” told the Jeff-Bezos owned newspaper that 13 witches, chaos magicians, and energy workers performed “gestures” in an effort to get Williamson more speaking time during Tuesday’s Democrat presidential primary debate in Detriot, Michigan.
“The whole orb gang community is tapping into the power of memes to reflect back on, and multiply, the sort of pulsing undercurrents of our collective unconscious,” the person emailed the Post. According to the publication, Williamson supporters refer to themselves as the “orb gang,” who share memes of the candidate on social media.

Basing such a story on an anonymous email? Professional Journalism!

Leaving aside metaphysical speculation about weird occult phenomena, let’s talk real politics: The Democratic National Committee has set a deadline of Aug. 28 for presidential candidates to qualify for the next round of debates in September. One of the criteria is having 130,000 unique donors and, as of 8 p.m., Marianne Williamson was at 113,521. That means she needs to get 16,479 new donors in the next three weeks.

Even a contribution of one dollar counts toward that total.
