Witches Want My Apology
It never ceases to amaze me how sensitive so many have become. Political correctness has given way to outright outrage at every little thing. A vast majority of otherwise normal human beings have taken to whining and complaining for the sake of whining and complaining. We have a saying on our studio door that says: “Saying ‘I’m offended’ is basically telling the world you can’t control your own emotions so everyone else should do it for you.” And Tina Fey once said she doesn’t care about internet freak-outs because they’re often fueled by a rush to judgement. Quote, “There’s no consideration of context in comedy these days…I don’t worry about what the Internet says. Getting in trouble with the Internet is not real. It’s not a force you have to obey.”
Yesterday, I did a “Jokey Joke” about a story claiming witches were going to put a continuous mass spell on President Trump. I joked they should shrink his head and body to match his small hands. So here is the email we received demanding an apology…

Today, February 28, 2017, Mike McKelly told everyone that witches were casting a spell to destroy president Trump. No doubt just reading the headline and not even bothering to read the body of the article. That cannot be further from the truth. Witches across America are in fact casting a spell daily to protect the president from negative influences, like the KKK and God’s Militia, that would want to plunge our country back into the dark ages. Mr McKelly’s words are extremely harmful to a community that has already for centuries dealt with more persecution than he can possibly fathom.
This is a request that he publicly apologize, on air, to the Pagan community for his harmful puritanical words. Especially in today’s society where people of faith are massacring Muslims and Pagans on a uniform basis, and in some cases, like in 2014, cannibalizing them. Mr. McKelly, please check your sources, you journalist wannabe.
So, you tell me. Should I apologize???
