Qanon Suiciders Are Drinking Bleach from Punch Bowls

Daily Beast: “QAnon acolytes in Dallas are now drinking toxic chemicals from a communal punch bowl, according to the family of a woman who joined the Texas ‘cult’ that’s waiting for the supposed resurrection of President John F. Kennedy and his late son, JFK Jr.

“Numerous members of the Leek family told the Dallas Observer that the woman, who reportedly abandoned her husband and children in Delaware last month to follow Trump-supporting QAnon leader Michael Brian Protzman to Dallas, has been quaffing a mixture containing chlorine dioxide—industrial bleach—which she apparently distributes among the group…

“Bleach-drinking enthusiasts got a boost last year when then-President Trump held a televised news conference during which he marveled at the possibility of using disinfectants to treat or prevent COVID-19.”

MAGA-Q Antivax Movement Looks More Like a Personality Cult Devolving into Mass Suicide Every Day

Philip Bump (Washington Post via PoliticalWire): “It is red America, Donald Trump-voting America, that has seen the worst effects of the pandemic. With divergent vaccination rates, with the unvaccinated population that’s most at risk being made up of Republicans at three times the rate of Democrats, that gap is poised to grow.”

Peter Baker/NY Times (via Twitter): Approximately 150,000 unvaccinated people in the United States have died of Covid-19 since June 1, despite an effective vaccine being widely and freely available, the New York Times reports.

Trump & company are using every means possible to encourage their followers to die – and statistics show that this contemptible campaign is working. Why are they doing it – why are they actively encouraging their followers to get sick and die? Is it just that they want to hobble the recovery, slow the economy and raise anxiety to make trouble for Biden and the Dems in the midterms.

But what makes the MAGAs so stubbornly determined to risk their health and their lives? It looks more like another personality cult devolving into mass suicide every day.
