and enchants a broomstick to do the work for him,
using magic he is not yet fully trained in..."

Witch-hunt

"A witch-hunt is a search for witches or evidence of witchcraft, often involving moral panic, mass hysteria and mob lynching, but in historical instances
also legally sanctioned and involving official witchcraft trials.
The classical period of witch-hunts in Europe falls into the Early Modern
period or about 1450 to 1700, spanning the upheavals of the Reformation
and the Thirty Years' War, resulting in tens of thousands of executions...
The term "witch-hunt" is often used to refer to similarly panic-induced
searches for perceived wrong-doers other than witches. The best known example
is probably the McCarthyist search for communists during the Cold War..."
