Dallas QAnon Cultists Drink Toxic Chemicals From Common Bowl, Family Says
The family of a QAnon cult member in Dallas is sounding the alarm.
Several members of the Leek family have confirmed that their relative, who left her husband and children in Delaware to follow a marginal cult leader QAnon in Dallas last month, drank a chemical cocktail containing chlorine dioxide, an industrial disinfectant, among other substances.
Their relative drank this cocktail alongside his fellow cult members and was also the one who mixed and distributed it within the group, said the family, who declined to disclose the name of their relative in the group. .
“She was proud to tell us that it was she who mixed it up and gave it to everyone,” a family member said.
Chlorine dioxide is a chemical similar to bleach. It is dangerous to ingest in large quantities. In April 2020, just a month after the pandemic hit the United States, the Food and Drug Administration issued a press release warning people against using chlorine dioxide products to combat COVID-19.
Yet people posing as medical professionals continue to sell chlorine dioxide products online. They found a particularly enthusiastic consumer base among QAnon followers, who believe the COVID-19 vaccine is part of a malicious government conspiracy.

It is not clear why the group is drinking the chemical potion, as many believe the coronavirus, which has killed more than 800,000 people in the United States and millions around the world so far, is a government invention.
Dallas cult leader Michael Brian Protzman could not be reached for comment.
News of the chemical punch bowl comes as the cult seems to be heading into yet another anticipated climax and apocalyptic moment.
They first arrived in Dallas over a month ago, following Protzman’s prediction that President John F. Kennedy would reappear at the exact spot in downtown Dallas where he was assassinated in 1963. From there, Kennedy would set in motion the execution of the supposed underground network of QAnon. Liberal child sex traffickers and Satan worshipers and reinstate Donald Trump as president.
After Kennedy failed to appear in two scheduled appearances in November, dozens of Protzman supporters remained in Dallas. It’s unclear what they’re waiting for or what Protzman has planned next.
The chemical cocktail is a bad sign.
“It looks like a progression,” said Mike Rothschild, whose book The storm is upon us documents the rise of the QAnon movement. “It immediately conjures up images of Jonestown and Heaven’s Gate.” (More than 900 people, many of them children, died in a mass suicide in the town of Jonestown in Guyana in 1978. Thirty-nine followers of the Heaven ‘Gate cult died in a mass suicide outside San Diego in 1997.)
Neither the Dallas Police Department nor the FBI Field Office in Dallas could be reached for comment. The Dallas PD previously said he had limited contact with the group.
“A group of people in a cult drinking a common substance is certainly not something to mess around with and is of great concern,” Rothschild said.
