LOL....Witch Trying To Attack Me

I was sent this link by a reader/client who thought it was hilarious. I do too.

http://storiesandconjure.tumblr.com/post/91063818685/my-secret-hoodoo-the-blog

These wannabe-witches always take issue with my blog. They attack me on my blog. They write their own blogs attacking me. They make up lies and false claims to spread about me online. An the end of the day they are horribly ignorant.

Hey self-styled modern "witches", when I write the words "witch" then unless I say otherwise I am referring to the old-school definition of witch that every single person in this country understood before the coming of Wicca. An old-school witch is an evil doer, a worker of harmful or destructive magic against innocent people, often for the obtainment of a goal or desire. Traditionally, they were believed to have sold their soul to Satan in exchange for powers. I am not speaking of Wiccans, Neo-Pagans and "Traditional Witches" because all of these are made up. Wicca, Neo-Paganism and "Traditional Witchcraft" were all invented around the mid 20th century. They are not old. They have no connection to any pagan religion. They are not a survival of paganism. They are not "crafts" but are instead religions. They have no craft of their own and so they are drawn to folk magic traditions such as hoodoo, brujeria, powwow, Appalachian granny magic, Ozark folk magic, and the like, so they can steal it and use it to prop up their mythology.

You modern witches can do whatever the hell you want to do. I'm not talking about you unless I specifically say I am. I'm talking about old-school witches who will gladly curse or hex someone just to get ahead or because they are jealous of someone. I'm talking about evil doers not modern hippy goddess worshipers.

Witchcraft is not a religion. It's just not. The term "craft" gives it away. A craft is an art, skill, or trade, a strong reference to the fact that they take on paying clients and perform spells in exchange for money and or goods/services. Most modern witches are against such things which is hilarious because actual history shows this to be the main face of witchcraft.

I am a conjure worker. We don't call ourselves witches because we are Christian and for us witches are evil-doers. However, others have accused us of being witches. Historically, many of the people condemned and executed for being "witches" were my kind of people, practitioners of folk magic. Your kind didn't even exist back then yet you try to claim them as your ancestors anyway.

The one thing that you need to realize in a hurry is that you are the imposters. We, the practitioners of folk magic traditions, are the true "witches", even though most of us don't call ourselves witches. We are the ones with the craft. We are the ones who were priorly condemned, not your kind.

  1. Wow. Why do you feel such a need to denigrate neopagans? To prop up your own legitimacy? Wicca was a product of the mid 20th century, sure, but isn't hoodoo a mash up of voodoo, Jewish mysticism and christianity that originated in the 19th century? Do you really think an extra 100 years lends your path or paradigm that much supremacy?

    1. Nope. Hoodoo is not Voodoo, is not a religion, and has nothing to do with Jewish mysticism.

      Hoodoo is a mixture of African, European and Native American folk magic, folk medicine, folk lore and folk religion. There is documentation of hoodoo going back to the 1700s under the name "conjure", but we know it existed as folk magic far longer than that in European, African and Native American traditions from which it derives.

      I'm not denigrating Neo-Pagans. I'm putting people who have time and again misrepresented history and deliberately lied in order to present themselves as masters and heirs of the occult, as the very definition of what a "witch" is, complete with an attitude that consistent cultural theft is perfectly fine as long as it is used to prop up the lies of their own mythology, in their place.

      Wicca, Neo-Paganism and so-called "Traditonal Witchcraft" are like the pod people in "Invasion of the Body Snatchers". They come in, assimilate and destroy the native magical traditions while leaving behind a highly inadequate and cheap fake "whatever goes" religion in it's wake that has no craft and respect for the magical traditions they are destroying.

      Are you familiar with the work of Edward Bryant Holman? He fought for the preservation of tradition Mexican brujeria and curanderismo practices. He said the biggest threat to native Mexican folk magic traditions was Wicca and modern self-styled witches. Practitioners of valid, authentic traditions study and learn their craft over time. Self-styled Wiccans and witches read a book and then deem themselves to be experts, come in and set up shop, teach nonsense to the public, often time presenting themselves as being the authentic practitioners, while siphoning off clients and the public from the real tradition and destroying it. Instead of going to a traditional brujah or a curandera people will go to a self-taught "Wiccan" or "Witch" and the old ways are being lost.

      There is no tolerance with Wiccans and self-styled Witches as long as they continue to pose a threat to the survival of authentic, valid magical traditions.

    2. http://www.luckymojo.com/jewsinhoodoo.html

      So hoodoo is a syncretic system based on three (or more, see above link) disparate magical traditions but is somehow supposed to be inviolate when it is subject to syncretization itself? And hoodoo is the only legitimate modern magical tradition? What about Asatru, Chaos Magic, Druidism, and many others that could perhaps fall under the umbrella of "modern hippy goddess worshippers?" Is a trek into the jungle the only way to spiritual empowerment? It just seems like magical elitism to me, and stinks of the kind of fundamentalism and "my way is the only way" attitude that has led to humanity down some of its darkest paths.

    3. The role of the Jews in Hoodoo is of that of marketer. The Jewish people have their own folk magic practices. The page link you posted is from a Jewish woman who is projecting too much into hoodoo. There is no significant contribution from Jews to hoodoo.

      Asatru, Chaos Magic, And Neo-Druidism are brand new.

      You seem not to be able to understand the difference between a religion and a traditional system of folk magic. Take Asatru for example. There's no craft of traditional folk magic there because Asatru is a brand new Neo-Pagan religion. Hoodoo is not a religion. It's a practice. It's a system of folk magic, folk medicine, folklore and folk religion elements.

      It's not magical elitism because these others things that you mention have no craft, no system of magic on their own, save for Chaos magic but that is completely made up.

      So what happens is that these people that you mention, whom I refer to as Wiccans and self-styled witches, want to raid and steal from valid, authentic traditional magical practices because they have no craft of their own. They then use what they steal to prop up their own made up stuff/mythology/lies. In their mind frame it's perfectly okay for them to raid and steal from other cultures because they believe they are THE witches, not just witches, but THE witches, the original, the one and only.

      If you can't see the problem then it's because you are part of the problem. If you can't see any wrong for people coming in, raping and pillaging from an existing native, magical tradition, then using what they stole to prop up their lies then it's because you are likely guilty of such. Your comments reek of the excuses that self-styled witches give for their horrible behavior.

  2. I didn't say anything about religion, although I will admit that I don't put too much stock into hard labels when it comes to spirituality, magic and other naturally ethereal things. I am not a wiccan or anything similarly abhorrent in your paradigm, unless you think agnostics who ask questions are part of the problem. I think what i I'm asking you, because you alluded to it, is this: Do you think Hoodoo is the only magical tradition that has survived into the current day? Do you think Hoodoo encompasses and is the climax of every extant tradition? Do you think that there is, past, present or future, any other legitimate tradition?

  3. dp.urban, are you just replying before reading my comments to you? There are native magical traditions that are centuries old, if not older. They include things like hoodoo, Appalachian folk magic or granny magic, Ozark folk magic, Powwow or Braucherei, and brujeria and curanderisimo. When you add Native American traditions then these are the predominate REAL magical traditions of North America. In England, the native practitioners were called Pellars and Charmers.

    Examples of things that are not traditional magical practices include:

    Wicca, Neo-Paganism and so-called "Traditional Witchcraft", which is neither traditional nor witchcraft. Asatru, Neo-Druidism (Neo means new. The Druid faith did not survive the coming of Christianity.) Modern Satanism is also a modern, made-up invention. None of these modern inventions have any form of magical craft. This is a problem because many of them claim that they are THE witches. How can they be THE witches when they have no magical craft and their focus is on religion? Of course it's because they lie. They aren't THE witches. However, in an attempt to prop up their lies they will raid REAL tradtions such as hoodoo, to steal stuff and then claim that it was theirs all along. This has happened over and over and over again throughout the years. Wiccans and witches steal shit from other practices and then lie and claim it was theirs all along. They are a threat to the old ways. This is why I speak out against them and take stand against them.

  4. Lie and claim it was theirs all along. Like that King Solomon oil and Psaltry you use that has nothing to do with Jewish mysticism.

    So these traditions are new. So was hoodoo at one point in time. Is it wrong to plagaraise? Yes. Were the conjure men present during the genesis of hoodoo citing their sources any better than modern wiccans do theirs? And how much of that plagiarism was through straight up ignorance of the source rather than willful malice? I think you're being a little unforgiving and a lot intolerant. I think you've missed your true calling as Fox News' occult correspondent.

    Like I said I'm agnostic, and a big reason for that is the sniping between faiths. How can I choose who's right when everyone says everyone else is wrong. So yeah, I followed your blog because I thought hoodoo might be the kind of syncretic system I'd been yearning for and you have one of the few blogs on the subject. It saddens me to discover the same kind of "I'm more legitimate/real/better/" than the other guy attitude here.

    1. King Solomon oil's main ingredient is Solomon Seal Root. You are ignorant so let me remind you that the overwhelming majority of hoodoo practitioners are Christian and use the bible in their work. Christianity, as off-shoot of Judaism includes the Old Testament as part of it's Bible. The Jewish people have their own system of folk magic practices as well as their own practice of mysticism which are not part of hoodoo. The overwhelming majority of the influence of hoodoo is European, followed by Native American and African. When Jews create corporations and businesses in order to profit off of people who believe in hoodoo, while admitting they do not believe in it themselves, that is not considered an "influence". That is marketing. That's the Jewish "contribution", that most occult and spiritual supply companies were owned by Jews who did not believe in hoodoo and only wanted to make money off of believers.

      You are not an agnostic. You are a liar. You can not be agnostic and still fight for the "right" of Wiccans and self-styled witches to rape, pillage and destroy traditional magical practices.

      Quite frankly I'm tired of lying sacks of shit "witches" like yourself. "C'MON LET US RAPE AND DESTROY YOUR TRADITION! HOW VERY CLOSED MINDED AND REPUBLICAN OF YOU NOT TO ALLOW US TO STEAL FROM YOU AND THEN USE IT TO PROP UP OUR OWN MADE UP BULL SHIT MYTHOLOGY AND PRETEND AS IF IT WAS OURS ALL ALONG! AFTER ALL, WE ARE THE REAL WITCHES! "

      Do you really think I haven't dealt with people like you before? I have been attacked by several witches on my blog. I had a Wiccan outright post on my blog that we (hoodoo practitioners) need to let them (Wiccans) assimilate and destroy our practice because it's the only way our practice will survive. Additionally this Wiccan believed we (hoodoo practitioners) were evil because we didn't follow the Wiccan Rede, another bull shit invention. I even had a woman who claimed to be a "Traditional Witch" who claimed that we (hoodoo practitioners) need to allow them ( Traditional Witches) to steal our craft because we as Christians persecuted them and stole what we do from them. This is the level of ignorance and bull shit I have to put up with. Every single Wiccan and "Traditional Witch" is not practicing any authentic tradition. It's all made up circa the mid 1900s. They were never persecuted. Nobody stole their craft because they never had one. What they do from it's invention circa the 1950s has always focused on religion. Any magic they perform has either been made up and has the trite trappings of being made up or has been stolen from authentic magical traditions and claimed as if it was a part of their practice all along. In the U.S. the number one genuine practice that witches steal from is hoodoo. The burning of colored candles, the oils, the amulet bags, etc. When they "teach" other people they do not tell them this is stuff they have stolen. They teach others that this is what they have done all along. So people believe them. They infect society with their bull shit lies and mythology, such as the Wiccan Rede and the "Rule of Three". Not a week goes buy that a potential client does ask if something will come back on them times three, times ten, times a hundred, or whatever flavor of the week you people promote.

      Since you come to my blog and lie and pretend to be something which you aren't then therefore your comments are no longer welcome at my blog.

  5. I have been studying Ceremonial Magick, Chaos Magick and now Hoodoo since I was 15 years old. I cannot tell you how irritated I am by Wiccans trying to force their threefold law on me. It's bullshit designed to make Christians more accepting of witchcraft.

    1. First it was times three. Then it was times ten. Now they say it's times a hundred or more. I'm so fucking sick of the lot of them. Wicca, as a whole, has more in common with fundamentalist Christianity than any actual paganism or witchcraft. Instead of being Bible thumpers they are Pentacle thumpers. And they have zero power on top of that. The majority of them have no clue to how to actually protect and defend themselves from magical attack other than that b.s. about invoking the white light.

  6. And they think that sex magic is all about putting a knife in a cup.

    1. LOL...It's worse than that. They can't accept that their founder, Gardner, was a huge chauvinist pig who was into nudism and group sex, no to mention believed the goddess was inferior to the god, and hence women were inferior to men. Gardner's Wicca, his invention, had nothing to do with Feminism and female empowerment. It was simply a way for Gardner to act out his sexual fantasies under a guise of spirituality.

      Wiccans today are such silly prudes they can't even get naked in front of each other, let alone have group sex. So they stick their athame in the chalice and pretend as if it's some great mysterious act.

  7. Plus there's the glamour aspect of witchcraft. I have yet to see a Wiccan throw a good glamour. You have to have a really charged mind to do that sort of thing, there's a process. You don't just chant a little ditty and suddenly you're gorgeous. It takes dedication.

  8. I don't know too much about Gardnerians other than that they don't believe you're a true Wiccan if you don't follow their path and are in a coven. Honestly, my interest in Wicca waned pretty quickly once I met Wiccans and saw how self-righteous they are on the outside, but will stoop to throwing curses on the sly.

    1. True. Gardnerians don't accept anyone using the term "Wiccan" unless they are an initiated Gardnerian or can be traced to Gardnerian.

      I don't know about cursing on the sly but they will sure as hell threaten to curse a person. They seemingly delight in threatening to curse people who get on their bad side for some reason or another.

  9. Well that's what I really meant. The like to puff themselves up and threaten to throw bad juju.
