Thousands of alien enthusiasts appear to be planning to storm the infamous Area 51 in Nevada in a desperate attempt to gain entrance into the conspiracy theorists’ Mecca.
A Facebook event named ‘Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us’ was started to announce the plan which is scheduled to take place at 3am on September 20, 2019.
“We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens,” the group’s details state.
As of this writing, 316,000 Facebook users have RSVP’d to the event and another 340,000 have confirmed they are interested in attending.
At the time of publication, over 15,000 posts have been made in the group; with memes, plans on how to hatch the raid, and even merchandise created for the event populating the page.
Clearly the page is meant to be a joke, but with so many saying they want to attend, the creator of the page made sure to clear himself of responsibility if there are some willing to storm the highly secure military base.
“Hello US government, this is a joke, and I do not actually intend to go ahead with this plan. I just thought it would be funny and get me some thumbsy uppies on the internet. I’m not responsible if people decide to actually storm area 51,” the post reads.
The United States Air Force facility, commonly known as Area 51, is a highly classified remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base within the Nevada Test and Training Range. Due to the secrecy that surrounds the base, it has long been speculated that the government researches alien technology at the facility.
