One million people is certainly a huge number of people. They all say they want to storm Area 51 and expose the government conspiracy to conceal the existence of UFOs and aliens.
If even a small fraction of those UFO lovers show up to try and break ‘them aliens’ free from the secret desert facility, the ‘Area 51 raid’ joke risks spilling into one of the largest civil disobedience events ever in the US.
“We can move faster than their bullets,” the creators of the intentionally farcical event claim. But with over a million alien fans now registered as ‘going’ – and nearly the same number in reserve, just ‘interested’ in the raid – the US Air Force could find itself facing off against an unprecedented number of unarmed individuals.
“We would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area,” an Air Force spokeswoman previously said, expressing hope that UFO enthusiasts understand that an attempted breach of a military installation is no laughing matter.
Despite the very real threat that the authorities would have no choice but to use force in case of a real mass invasion, the special meme forces – either desperate to get to the bottom of US government secrets or just bored – are keeping the #Area51memes hashtag alive.
As I said previously, I believe that Area 51 is a testing ground for advanced military technology. While I am open minded about many subjects including UFOs and aliens, I believe most UFOs are in reality some type of secret advanced military technology.
Either way, if a huge number of people stormed Area 51, it would be very funny. I’d probably laugh. But I don’t think there’s one million people who have the balls to do it. If I had to guess, they’ll probably get no more than 1,000 people tops to try and storm the facility and they’ll be taken down by a small army of riot police.
The government should really be more transparent about what’s going on at Area 51 though. All the secrecy has created this situation where we now have a million people who say they’re willing to storm Area 51 and find the truth for themselves. It’s also a sign that people generally no longer trust the government and I can’t blame them for feeling this way.
