What Happens If One Million People Actually Stormed Area 51?

  • Published on Jul 18, 2019
  • If you happened to wander into the Nevada desert and stumbled upon the secret U.S. military base, Area 51, you'd quickly be arrested, killed, or maybe even abducted by aliens. But what if you happened to organize one million other people through social media to storm Area 51? They can't stop us all right? Or can they? And if you did manage to get into the base, what would you see?

    Okay, let me be abundantly clear because some people think this is funny, others do not realize the influence they have on unstable people. It is a military base, specifically an outer portion of an air force base. Forget Aliens, imagine rubber bullets, and gas masks. Then some idiot from bumblefuck pulls out of his pickup truck and decides to fire a shot from his granddaddy's rifle into the sky, now you are literally a legal mob attacking an American military base. Forget jail time, look at bloody Sunday in 76' and how bad that went down because of one call, now imagine 50 cal. machine gun checkpoints with nervous men and hairtrigger m4s. You'll have better luck going to war with Spain. DO NOT DO IT.

    Okay here is the plan we need people to come early so we need 10 groups coming at 2:00am to camp out and each group has one to stay up. Then we will be calling in another 10 groups and as we build there will be not as much traffic which means we will ask raid it and gas mask will he provided and bullet proof vest. Guess what were READY! edit: we will have the first 10 groups at 2:00am to rent white trucks and we will give them a replica of the suits the guards wear and then hats and sunglasses. These will be the most important groups. Our naruto runners will come from the left and right . If you fall or get hurt the 5 trucks in the back will be a recovering center with 7 healers in each. Foods and drinks will be stored in the back seat of each white rental truck.

    Imagine if a million people actually did storm the base, wouldn't the military get a lot of shit if they killed everyone? Area-51 would then have the same amount of lives claimed in minutes as Auschwitz had in 5 years.
