UFO Researcher Jeremy Corbell Interviews ‘Storm Area 51’ Event Creator Matty Roberts
UFO researcher and filmmaker Jeremy Corbell recently interviewed the creator of the controversial ‘Storm Area 51’ Facebook page, Matty Roberts, and asked for his take on the wave of attention the event has garnered from both the public and the military.
The event, which quickly went viral after being posted to Facebook and has inspired countless memes on social media, is scheduled for September 20 and is described on the page as follows: “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.”
In the July 25 interview which can be found on Corbell’s YouTube channel, he begins by asking Roberts to clear up any misconceptions that the 21 year-old college student currently residing in Bakersfield, CA was acting on behalf of any government agency when he created the event to which he gives an authoritative ‘NO’.
Roberts states that the event was created one night on a whim after getting inspiration from a popular video game and was initially meant to be a joke. He goes on to state that he never imagined the event would gain the popularity that it did and warns people not to take it seriously or engage in any attempt to actually storm the military base.
Corbell goes on to inquire if Roberts is worried about any repercussions from law enforcement over the creation of the event due to the fact that the U.S. Air Force has officially responded to the page and warned people not to attempt to enter onto the property.
Roberts re-iterates that he wants concerned individuals to understand that the event was created as a joke but understands that the military must take all threats seriously stating “at the end of the day a threat is still kind of a threat…i’m not really surprised that they responded to it, but I would like to make clear to them that it is, in fact, a meme.”
“at the end of the day a threat is still kind of a threat…i’m not really surprised that they responded to it, but I would like to make clear to them that it is, in fact, a meme.”
Roberts does, however, state that he believes the event has brought much needed attention to the subject of secrecy surrounding the UFO subject and says that if his event helps inspire more people to become interested in the topic he views this as a good thing.
Roberts tells Corbell that instead of storming the top-secret facility, he hopes the event will instead be an opportunity for like-minded individuals to come together in the desert on that day and put on a ‘festival’ of sorts showcasing speakers, art, and music related to the topic.
In the interview Roberts comes off as likable, intelligent, and informed…and this writer truly hopes that his safety or freedom has not been compromised due to the creation of the event.
As of this writing 1.9 million people have pledged to attend the event on Roberts’s Facebook page along with 1.4 million others showing ‘interest’ in going.
