Posted on 07/09/2019 11:45:46 PM PDT by righttackle44
A bizarre online campaign suggesting that UFO enthusiasts storm Area 51 in search of alien secrets hidden at the infamous base has seemingly garnered the support of nearly 200,000 people. The wild idea is reportedly the brainchild of a group of online agitators who created a Facebook event titled 'Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us.' Although the proposed gathering appears to have been just a joke, the concept captured the imagination of the masses online.
To date, a whopping 181,000 people have declared that they are 'attending' the event and another 200 thousand individuals have expressed interest in joining in on the action which is set to take place on Friday, September 20th at 3 AM. Of course, as anyone who has haphazardly accepted an online invitation to a distant relative's art gallery opening or dance recital can attest, the vast majority of the people who indicated plans to join in the horde almost certainly will not be in attendance when the big day arrives.

We drove down the so-called Extraterrestrial Highway last summer. I came to realize that Area 51 is a good 30 miles from any highways and the only access to the whole complex is along guarded roads that probably have locked gates on them in more than one location. So the logistics of 200,000 people getting into Area 51 is not very easy to imagine. If there was anything there to protect then the guards of those secrets would have a fairly large amount of time to increase security or move things away. So I don’t imagine this could possibly lead to anything other than a bunch of confused city people trying to navigate their way around endless unmarked gravel roads in broiling dusty salt flats. I would love to have the tire repair franchise at the little town at the end of the ET Highway.
Not to mention the perimeter around the base is huge and there is only open desert. Imagine a modern army stopping a charge from a medieval army who only has swords and spears.
I imagine that defensive capability might even increase, because of this online game.
I would also imagine that if there is anything there it would be deep underground behind blast doors that can take a direct hit from a nuclear bomb. The surface is probably just barracks and hangars for conventional aircraft.
The threat would be one of those “hold my beer”
instances. Security is serious. 5 feet inside
the wire and you’re dead. Others have tried.
I bet on the big day about 40 comic book guys will show up half bent on Jim Beam and lemonade. Big bonfire Everybody gets runnoft by the cops.
Base perimeter no issue; I will be attending via puncture-proof hot air balloon which is also fully stealthy.
Abandon all hope, ye who enter here illegally.
These nutballs have no idea what sort of pain is in store for any of them that cross that perimeter line.
They shot some udiot back in January, I believe.
With the motto (in a similar thread) “they can’t get us all”, they will get a close frontal view at how automatic weapons work - and I’m sure the guards have enough ammo to give each a round or two or three.
There is no humor ... only the sounds of rapid gun fire followed by silence (after the screaming stops).
I don’t think anyone has been actually killed. Trespassers are held in a small building on the perimeter and a Lincoln County sheriff will come and arrest them, quite typical, actually.
Oh, this is fun. Obviously it’s a joke.
But the conversations under the FB event might be fun to read:
Sorry. Just noticed some of the language at that link.
Maybe the government just wants everyone to believe that aliens are locked up in Area 51.
While the conspiracy theorists wander in circles there, maybe all this time, the aliens have been locked up somewhere else. ;-)
This is actually a plan put in place by the MIB to gather all the UFO agitators in one spot and hit them with the neuralizer beam.
It is Groom Lake, not Area 51.
Groom Lake is the airbase and surrounding area,
Area 51 is the airspace above it.
The Nevada Range (Red Flag) is carved up in chunks and numbered and Area 51 happens to be the number of the airspace above Groom Lake.
Apparently the Democrats are really desperate to find anyone who can run against President Trump.
Good luck to ‘em. Use of lethal force is authorized on Groom Lake.
Wandering around in the desert a 3 am is a sure fire way to get injured or snake bit. This is going to be fun to observe.
