Everyone's Phone Will Get an Alarm at 2:20 P.M. Eastern Today . . . and Conspiracy Theorists Are Freaked
A lot of Americans are going to be looking at their phones at the EXACT SAME MOMENT today . . . at 1:20 P.M. Central.
Earlier this year, the government announced that it had picked this day for a nationwide test of its Emergency Alert System and Wireless Emergency Alerts.
An alert will be sent to all radios and televisions, as well as all consumer cellphones. You don't need to do anything . . . just ignore it. It's just like those "tests of the emergency broadcast system" that happened ALL THE TIME throughout the '80s and '90s.
The purpose is to make sure the system works, because when there's an ACTUAL emergency, like a tornado, there's no time for troubleshooting. It'll be a brief interruption . . . but we'll ALL be dealing with it.
Well, MOST of us. Some conspiracy theorists say they're avoiding it by leaving their phones off ALL DAY. And they have a pretty wild take on this.
They claim that the alert on people's cellphones will be used to "activate nanoparticles introduced into people's bodies." (???)
There are many conflicting "explanations" for how or why this will happen, but there's one video where a woman says that the test will trigger "graphene oxide" that was put in people's blood through COVID-19 vaccines.
And when that happens, the government will be able to monitor people and control them like remote control toys.
Not to go down this rabbit hole, but graphene oxide is not an ingredient in any Covid vaccine, and even if it was . . . scientists say you can't "activate" it, and it makes no sense that it could somehow interact with wireless networks.
(Chuckle if you want, but we ALL know someone who buys into stuff like this. And it doesn't matter if you try to respond with logic, like "If that's the case, why would they TELL YOU they're doing it beforehand, so you could turn your phone off and narrowly avoid becoming a puppet?")
This also isn't the first nationwide test to be sent through phones. Federal law requires the systems be tested every few years. The last one was in 2021.
