Why September 24 conspiracy nuts fear Putin will launch nukes on new Doomsday date – sparking WW3 apocalypse

CONSPIRACY theory nuts fear Vladimir Putin will launch a nuclear attack on September 24, sparking World War Three.

The wild claims come after the Russian dictator fired off a terrifying nuke warning to Britain and the West as he forcibly drafted 300,000 reservists into his disastrous war in Ukraine.

Various online accounts have been spreading the bonkers theory that Doomsday is now quickly approaching – in just two days.

According to the viral online predictions, Saturday will bring all kinds of world-ending events such as natural disasters, zombies, and World War Three.

The widespread panic was sparked by a misinterpreted video from a German politician.

Friedrich Metz, a member of the German Parliament, gave a speech, which was posted on Twitter.

Friedrich said: “Dear Colleagues…September 24, 2022 will be remembered by all of us as a day which we will say, ‘I remember exactly where I was…?'”

The Twitter user who shared the video said: “What the f*** are they planning on 24 september 2022!!,” followed by a warning sign emoji.

The video sparked some wild conspiracy theories like how a big solar flare would hit earth and create tropical cyclones on September 24, causing mass destruction.

One Twitter user said of Putin: “This psycho is moving the needle on the Doomsday Clock forward because like someone we all know, his ego can’t stand to be embarrassed like the global joke he is. Dangerous lunatic.”

Another wrote “time to move the Doomsday Clock” after the Russian dictator announced the mobilisation of troops.

A third asked: “Does anyone know what’s going to happen on September 24, 2022? I have a feeling it’ll be blamed on Putin. Just saying. Or will they take Putin out? Who knows?”

However, there is no evidence of a global catastrophe brewing.

And solar flares are not capable of such damage, as they are made up of charged particles from the sun that cause disturbances in earth’s magnetic field, not cyclones.

There isn’t even a solar flare expected to hit Earth on September 24, according to Space Weather’s records on Wednesday.

In fact, the misunderstanding seems to have stemmed from Metz simply misspeaking.

He was addressing the invasion of Ukraine by Russia on February 24 this year, when he accidentally substituted February for September.

The official transcript of the speech has since been updated to say February to correct the mistake.

Meanwhile, an episode of The Simpsons that supposedly predicted the world would end on September 24, 2022, has added to the panic.

The episode, titled “Homer Goes to Prep School,” shows Homer joining a survivalist group.

“The apocalypse is coming. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe never, but it’s coming,” Homer tells Marge.

However, the episode never mentions the Doomsday date.

The theory comes from the fact that the episode number is 24/9, which was interpreted as September 24.
