QAnon Guru Dead?

( – Michael Protzman, a 60-year-old leader within the QAnon political movement, often described by the left as a “conspiracy cult,” has reportedly died as a result of a dirt bike crash.

Protzman passed away after suffering numerous blunt force injuries in a June 30 accident at the Meadow Valley Motocross track in Millville, Minnesota, The US Sun reports, quoting Vice News.

Vice obtained a medical examiner’s report about the QAnon leader’s death.

Noting the Minnesota Department of Health has officially recorded Protzman’s passing, the outlet claims Protzman’s “inner circle desperately tried to conceal the reality of his accident and death from his followers.”

They allegedly limited social media groups to prevent questions on Protzman’s condition and purged posts about his death until they received “absolute verification.”

Protzman, a small business owner using the nickname Negative 48, rose to prominence in QAnon in 2021, during the COVID-19 pandemic, when he reached over 100,000 followers on Telegram.

He may have been most famous for convincing his followers that assassinated President John F. Kennedy and his son, JFK Jr., who died in a 1999 plane crash, were still alive.

The QAnon guru claimed the two Kennedys who reemerged in November 2021 in Dealey Plaza, where the president was killed in 1963.

Protzman alleged that JFK would reinstate Donald Trump as president and help him purge “a global cabal of pedophilic, blood-drinking liberal elites” that QAnon believes run the world.

After his prediction failed to materialize, he came up with a new one: President Kennedy would return on June 11, 2022.

Subsequently, The Messenger reports that Protzman also alleged that he was in direct communication with former President Donald Trump and that Trump was JFK Jr. in disguise.

Even after his prophecies failed, many of Protzman’s followers continued to believe him, with some traveling around the US to explore his ideas.

“We have traveled around together, some of us go home, some of us go back and forth, but collectively we’re all learning together from him,” his supporter Melissa Cole told The Washington Post.

“We’re standing for the 2020 election; it was stolen from us,” she added.
