Candidate for Floridan Senate drinks the blood of a goat

Tommy Callaghan, News Editor

Every politician is unique in their own way. Donald Trump is known for being abrupt and rather rude, some are known as untrustworthy like Richard Nixon and his ‘Watergate’ scandal, and some are quite indescribable like Augustus Sol Invictus. Before he ran for Senate, the 32-year-old changed his name to a Latin phrase meaning “majestic unconquered sun.” Even though it is unlikely his original name was worse than “Augustus Sol Invictus,” he declined to reveal his birth name.

Running for a spot in the Floridan senate, Invictus recently admitted to having once killing a goat in the wilderness and then drinking its blood. To most people, drinking a murdered goat’s blood not only seems absolutely crazy, but sadistic. While he claims it to be acceptable, as it was part of a pagan ritual, critics and citizens of the United States alike fear what Invictus would do as a political figure. The religion which Invictus follows is called Thelema. The reason behind sacrificing sacrificing a goat comes from 2013. In 2013, Invictus walked from central Florida to the Mojave Desert and spent a week there fasting. When he returned to Florida, he killed the goat to give thanks. Invictus sacrificed the animal to the god of wilderness as payment for keeping him alive. In an interview, Invictus said, “I did sacrifice a goat. I know that’s probably a quibble in the mind of most Americans.”

As for his political views, Invictus is running in the Libertarian party even though his fellow party members see him as a fascist. He prophesizes a “great war” within America’s borders and draws the support of neo-Nazis.

Augustus knows winning the political race for Senate will be a challenge, but looks froward to it.
