Is It Even Right to Announce UFOs During a Worldwide Pandemic?

COVID-19 is no joke. People are popping up positive with new symptoms from this virus.

Small businesses have been suffering, and unemployment has skyrocketed to the millions.

Protestors have marched to their state capitols demanding their rights after weeks of mandated quarantines.

2020 has been an eventful year so far for all of us. The last thing you’d want is mainstream news to announce amongst this sweeping epidemic is UFOs.

I’m all about aliens, but is it even right to mention UFOs during a worldwide pandemic? So far, it’s nothing like Independence Day with spaceships destroying major cities. People are already at their nerves’ end; some don’t take the news lightly anymore.

Besides, the latest alien news announced has already been mentioned before.

A few years ago, I remember Good Morning America presented a video of a strange aircraft rotating in no way any familiar aircraft has moved before. You’ve probably seen the video. The name: The “Tic Tac” UFO:

(“Pentagon releases ‘UFO’ videos filmed by U.S. Navy Pilots”-The Telegraph) (via Youtube)

What’s the point of bringing up this video and others like it now? According to a CNN article, the government has released the videos “to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos.”

The UFO videos, now declassified, have initially been released between December 2017 and September 2018. You’d think the government would have figure out the authenticity these videos way before the epic problems of 2020 has hit us.

What do you think about all of this? A load of baloney or a conspiracy? For me, I supposed the news was only something different to discuss. However, this is not the most convenient time.

To add to the recent UFO discoveries, there are more UFO sightings still left unsolved in our past:

Who knows what’s going on. There’s so much mystery to this world.

What we should be more concerned about in this stage is staying safe and lively during these tumultuous times.
