“To justify the end of democracy as we know it.”
Propagandist Michael Moore has taken his conspiracy theorizing to a whole new level. Apparently, that “Presidential test alert” American received on their phones Wednesday was really a practice run for a future emergency that President Trump will use to install himself as a totalitarian dictator.
On Wednesday, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced on Twitter they would be “testing the Wireless Emergency Alert system nationwide,” which basically came in the form of an annoying buzz on people’s cellphones with the phrase “presidential alert” emblazoned across.
“TODAY (10/3): At 2:18 PM EDT, we will be testing the Wireless Emergency Alert system nationwide. Expect a message box on your phone along with a loud tone and vibration,” the FEMA account tweeted.
To Michael Moore, however, this was indicative of something nefarious. Writing on Twitter, Moore proposed the following message straight from crazy town: “It was just a test. But make no mistake about it. This is the world in which we now live.” That’s my final line in ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’. A few minutes ago, Trump gave us a preview of the state of emergency he is creating to justify the end of democracy as we know it. RESIST!”
