Social media trolls Alex Jones with ‘Second Civil War’ letters

Social media users mocked InfoWars founder and host Alex Jones for predicting that Democrats are planning to start a civil war on July 4.

The conspiracy theorist tweeted his prediction on Monday, accompanied by a video in which he claimed that “elite publications” were calling for a “civil emergency” using civil unrest and “racial strife” to force out President Trump.

Twitter users were quick to jump on Jones’s claims, mocking him with letters written in the style of those from soldiers written during the American Civil War.

Many of the tweets referenced the alt-right and spoke of fighting the “MAGA” or “red hats,” referencing President Trump’s campaign slogan, Make America Great Again.
