Storm Area 51!

For those of you who haven’t heard, this is a thing here in the US this weekend. A bunch of folks are getting together near the infamous US Military base known as Area 51. Most likely it’s just going to be an excuse to party, get drunk and do drugs in the desert. SOME of the folks are actively advocating trying to really storm onto the base and take it over. Their logic being they’re ENTITLED to know what goes on there and “They can’t stop us all”.

To be blunt, that last part is laughable at best and recklessly naive at worst. They’re talking about attacking a military base. One full of soldiers armed with fully automatic weapons who are highly trained in using them.

Granted, the press would have a field day if it were a massacre, and it’s far more likely that any attempted incursion would be met with massive doses of tear gas and similar non-lethal force options. BUT, you never know. Again, I doubt it’ll be more than a kegger in the desert like the Burning Man festival. The idea that people would be openly talking about assaulting a top secret military base just goes to show how completely out of control the sense of entitlement is with people nowadays though. I want it, I want it now, without earning it, and without any consequences! A few decades ago, that kind of behavior used to be largely limited to 2 year olds.

Let’s assume for the moment that UFOs, the truly alien kind, are real (I’m on the fence). Would I blame the government for keeping them secret? Nope! 5 minutes with Google can turn up countless cases of far less significant things leading to complete mass hysteria. You’d have everything from alien worshiping cults to armed doomsday groups popping up overnight.

The REAL irony to the whole event is that those who really pay attention to UFO stories and Area 51 say that it was abandoned as an advanced research facility shortly after it started getting major press. Things like the Aurora super jet and whatever alien tech may or may not have been there were moved to an even more isolated facility deeper in the Southwest desert. Area 51 exists primarily as a distraction now, LOL.

With that in mind, who knows? Maybe the military will actually LET the partiers storm the base to “prove” there was never anything there.

    I’m an advocate of complete government transparency. It won’t happen but, it should.

    My uncle, some years ago, went to Area 51 for Homeland Security training. He is retired law enforcement, now. He talked about the desert tortoise, the desert hare and how everyone’s cell phone had to be shut off twice a day…as well as base equipment. He said it was pretty much unimpressive. Area 51 IS a diversion. The real stuff is in the unknown underground bases all over the southwest.

    A big enough crowd could storm the base & the ensuing retaliation would be a nightmare, possibly enraging the entire nation. Not sure. That would require folks to either put down their cell phones or stop watching Netflix for five minutes.

    And, speaking of cellphones, if you are wondering if we do, indeed, have alien technology at our disposal…there you go. The human race has spent 1000s of years evolving at a steady pace but, we hit the 20th century and leap ahead in the blink of an eye? Not a coincidence.

      Complete transparency is something that will likely never happen. Some things just have to be “classified”. The activities of our intelligence community for example. If we knew who and where all our spies were, so would the Russians, Chinese, Iranians, North Koreans, etc… There are bad people out there in the world. There are also far too many short sighted, intellectually and emotionally immature people out there. The news out here ran a story about people screaming bloody murder at a city council meeting over the proposed purchase of an armored van to be used to rescue wounded police officers. Less threatening looking than a military APC. Nope, nobody was having it despite one officer being left to bleed out on the front lawn of a house with an active shooter. She was not the only officer killed in the last year either. You can’t trust people like that with the alleged truth about aliens. THAT said, there’s far too much garbage, graft and corruption being hidden by the government.

        Perhaps countries shouldn’t be spying on one another but, that is a different conversation.

        Ah. California. I feel for ya’. Durham, one county over, east, is starting to resemble Chicago. My town appears to be rather stable. My county is the highest taxed county in the entire state so, another CA comparison. We do have people here that spend an usually large amount of time arguing about Confederate flags & statues. Brilliant folks. Erase your own damn history and be more clueless than you already are.

    If I wanted to save humanity and were ultimately wealthy, I’d invent an inevitable alien threat. People unite when an external force threatens more than just their immediate tribe. Imagine if humans themselves were at risk of decimation? Extinction issued through perceived alien threat? Race, religion, gender affiliation would all melt away as the planet came under the risk of annihilation.
    I wonder of the Area 51 “outers” are racist, misogynist bigots? I rather doubt it.

      On the surface it’s not a bad idea, BUT it’s still weaponizing fear. The backlash once it was exposed would be horrific. ALSO… just to show that any good intention can be twisted for evil, some conspiracy theorists believe that exact scenario will be used by the New World Order to herd people into a totalitarian one world government after they’ve dealt with radical Islam. SUPPOSEDLY the UFO stuff now is to set the stage for that scenario, lol. Yes, I’m skeptical, however, IF there’s an “alien invasion” after we get peace in the Middle East, I’m heading for the hills. For now, I’ll just chuckle and watch.

        Weaponizing fear, maybe. I’d say it was drawing the concept of “tribe” around the whole human race. Media uses such tropes to cinematic success, after all.
        And there are no aliens — everyone knows that.

      This was a waste of time for sure, LOL. As for conspiracy theories… There’s sometimes a grain of truth in them, but they go so far off deep end that they just become completely unbelievable to most people.
