We all know that Republicans love to take credit for things they didn’t do, but in this case, taking credit for something may be far-fetched. A GOP candidate for California’s Secretary of State claims she helped kill a “witch” through prayer. In a campaign speech at Fresno City College on Oct. 7, Rachel Hamm told supporters that that devil-worshippers sacrificed animals and performed other rituals in front of her home, which led to her nightmares and eventual ability to kill witches through prayer. Hamm said that after having a bad dream, she prayed for someone to be murdered on their own lawn.
“The day that I moved into that house, someone from the Satanic community came to my house with a black raven in his hand, and he twisted off the neck of the bird and let the blood spill out onto my property to claim my property and assert the power of Satan over my home,” Hamm said. “I learned a lot about how Satan works, about how the forces of evil work,” she continued.
Hamm has a history of speaking about Satanic conspiracy theories; however, this October speech was different. This time, she not only claimed to be a “prophetic dreamer” but also said that she was able to kill someone through prayer.
“I am a prophetic dreamer. That means I see things in my dreams before they happen. God speaks to me through my dreams and shows me things.”
“I have just had a dream that someone has tried to break into my home, murder me, and light my house on fire,” Hamm said. She continued on that she was shaken by the dream and prayed it wouldn’t come true. Apparently, the day after praying for her own life to be spared, she discovered that her prayers had apparently caused a “witch” who lived near her to be murdered in her home.
“You know the witches, the self-proclaimed witches who live two doors down?’” Hamm recalled her mother saying. “‘Well, someone broke into their house, murdered her, and lit the house on fire.’ I, of course, was like, ‘Excuse me, what did you just say?’”
“The very thing that I had just dreamed that someone was trying to do to me had happened to them,” she said.
Hamm claimed to her supporters that this witch murder was a sign of God’s power.
Of course, when asked about the incident Hamm told reporters she didn’t have time to find evidence of the witch’s murder.
“I can let you know that it was only one witch that was murdered,” she told The Daily Beast.
According to Daily Beast, Hamm’s encounters with Satanists go beyond the alleged raven sacrifice. In her 2017 memoir, Hamm claimed she attended daycare as a child that was later revealed to be a front for Satan-worshippers. The claims enforce suspicious and conspiracy theories about supposed Satanic daycares that fueled the “Satanic panic” in the 1980s and 1990s.
“This was a Satanic coven claiming to be a preschool so they could train children in Satanic rituals,” she wrote. Interesting how she is allegedly consistently the target of such worshippers throughout her life.
Another fun fact, Hamm has the endorsement of MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who also made headlines for claiming to have dreams from God. While Hamm’s bid for secretary of state is unlikely to succeed, it is important to note that she is a candidate who, if elected, would be responsible for duties including overseeing elections, and operating programs to protect victims of domestic violence.
