QAnon WTF?!

QAnon Members Have Begun Drinking A Bleach Compound From A Communal Bowl

Members of the QAnon cult who began arriving in Dallas not long ago to await the “return” of the late President John F. Kennedy and his son, John F. Kennedy Jr., have taken yet another step towards becoming a group of fanatics that appear destined to go down in history as an apocalyptic bunch of yahoos who could only find the answers to their endless conspiracy theories by committing mass suicide.

According to a disturbing report from the Dallas Observer, the latest ritual for some of the Dallas QAnon members is drinking a bleach compound from a communal punch bowl, which is eerily reminiscent of the ritual mass suicide that took place in Jonestown, Guyana when the Rev. Jim Jones ordered his believers to drink cyanide-laced fruit punch as a “revolutionary” act:

The family of a Dallas’ QAnon cult member is sounding the alarm.

Multiple members of the Leek family confirmed that their relative, who left her husband and children behind in Delaware to follow a fringe QAnon cult leader to Dallas last month, has been drinking a chemical cocktail containing chlorine dioxide, an industrial disinfectant, among other substances. 

Their relative has been drinking this cocktail alongside her fellow cult members and has been the one to mix it up and distribute it amongst the group as well, says family, who have declined to reveal the name of their relative in the group.

A family member recalled:

“She was proud to tell us that she was the one mixing it up and giving it to everybody.”

Chlorine dioxide, it should be noted, is very similar to bleach, and “is dangerous to ingest in significant quantities. In April 2020, barely a month after the pandemic hit the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration issued a press release warning people against using chlorine dioxide-based products to fight COVID-19.”

Perhaps it shouldn’t surprise us that a group of people who still believe JFK and JFK Jr. will appear in the same place where the former president was assassinated and appoint Donald Trump as the new head of state would be drinking bleach, but such a move is a dangerous escalation, according to author Mike Rothschild, who has written extensively about the QAnon cult:

“This feels like a progression. It immediately evokes images of Jonestown and Heaven’s Gate.
“A group of people in a cult drinking a communal substance is definitely not something to mess around with and is extremely concerning.”

Then again, maybe fewer QAnon members isn’t such a bad thing.
