The November 3rd Seattle nuclear attack is a conspiracy theory about a supposed false flag operation that was supposed to happen on 3 November 2019 in Seattle, Washington. The purported evidence for this consists of references taken from old episodes of The Simpsons, the 2002 film The Sum of All Fears,Wikipedia the 2018 K-pop song "Let's Start WW3" by World Order,Wikipedia and other random media.[1]

The conspiracy theory was covered by the usual assortment of kooks and wingnuts.[2][3] An article in Before It's News, everyone's favorite paranoid conspiracy bullshit website, suggested that everyone play with "the Gematrinator" to understand the complex web of conspiracy forecasting the event.[4]

On 3 November 2019, Seattle was not destroyed by nuclear weapons. However, the Ali Kuşçu astronomy center in Ankara, Turkey was damaged by fire on this day.[5] Because the facility has a spire-like structure that vaguely resembles the Seattle Space Needle,Wikipedia wingnuts claimed that this was proof of the conspiracy theory.
