HIGH POINT, N.C. – Former city council candidate Megan Longstreet isn’t laughing after the local paper published a political cartoon that appeared to advocate for witch hunts. The cartoon, which appeared in the High Point Enterprise (HPE) paper the day after the election, said, “Proving that there’s nothing wrong with a witch hunt if there’s a witch to hunt.”
Longstreet is a Pagan and has identified as being Wiccan. Though not all Wiccans identify as Witches, some do. The newspaper says they did not have Longstreet in mind when they created this cartoon. Longstreet, though, believes they did.
