‘Storm Area 51’–UFO Buffs Just Might Do That

It started out as a joke. Maybe. Or maybe it wasn’t. Either way, a call went out on the social media for a million UFO believers to descend on Area 51 on Sept. 20, and, at 3 a.m., to storm the formerly top-secret Air Force base in search of aliens and UFOs (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/jul/28/storm-area-51-turnout-overwhelms-rachel-nevada/).

The local sheriffs don’t think it’s so funny anymore. Their small towns can’t handle a million people, many of whom are sure to be a few fries short of a happy meal.

When they storm the base, they say they’re going to run in some style they picked up from… cartoons.

For years, the little towns in the area have capitalized on UFO mania–motels, gift shops, diners, all with UFO/space alien themes. Now what was done in fun is threatening to turn serious.

Oh, yeah… For decades, the whole crowd of UFO nuts “knew” everything that was happening on the top-secret base. Makes you wonder how we ever kept any secrets from the Russians. They saw it on The X Files. They saw it in movies. And on Youtube. It had to be the worst-kept secret in world history.

And many of them believed in it, because when all is said and done, you have to believe in something. If you’ve lost faith in the true God, then idols and false gods and Science will have to do. And super-advanced Space Brothers who will emerge from their UFOs to guide us to utopia.

I’m not saying there’s absolutely nothing to any of that “Unexplained” stuff. But it’s awfully hard to study anything that’s been so deeply tainted and warped by our weird popular culture.

    Yep, the pop culture manages to mess up everything.

    Undoubtedly, the military has tested some newly developed aircraft in secret, over the years. Area 51 is, allegedly where some of this took place. I wouldn’t know and anyone that does know is probably not able to divulge such information. I sincerely doubt that there is anything on the order of vehicles that travel at unheard of speed. Going much faster than Mach III is no simple task and anything that is capable of such speeds probably runs out of fuel very fast. The laws of aerodynamics, chemistry and physics are not drawn from fanciful Sci Fi.

    Here’s what I think will happen: Some handful of somewhat unstable people will show up and be dealt with easily by the security team. Most of them will leave quietly when they are instructed to do so; there may be one or two unfortunates whom actually try to gain access and they may end up in a spot of trouble. I doubt anyone will be shot, unless they brandish a weapon or appear to be reaching for one. The story will linger a few days in the news and we may end up “treated” to news of a lengthy process of determining fitness to stand trial. Perhaps, some poor slob will try to use the witness stand to vent his views, and then it will be forgotten.
