Storm Area 51

As of today, over 550,000 people have signed up on Facebook to invade the secretive Area 51 base this September. How did this all come about? During the week of July 1, a public Facebook page joined forces with a Twitch video game streamer named SmyleeKun to organize an event called “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,” an even where attendees are invited to fly out to Lincoln Country, Nevada, and “all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry” at 3 am Pacific on September 20. Many are familiar with the “cammo dudes” that patrol the base and surrounding areas, so they assume that if a swarm of people ambush the high-security base at once, they won’t be able to stop them.

The organizers call this ambush a “Naruto run”, or for those unfamiliar with the Japanese manga, it’s a running style where you have your arms outstretched backwards and heads forward. The base’s current primary purpose is publicly unknown, but based on historical evidence, it probably supports the development and testing of black project experimental aircraft and weapons systems. “We can move faster than their bullets,” according the event page’s claim for those who RSVP for September 20.
