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.
#secondcivilwarletters Dearest wife,
We were besieged on all sides with the dankest of memes from the 2nd Flying Pepe Battalion; however the siege lifted when the owner of a Thai/Mexican fusion restaurant denied service to Field Marshall Stephen Miller. Pls refill iTunes account

Dear Mom and dad,
The war is going well. The MAGA’s launched a barrage of red hats at us yesterday, but we retaliated by making them read books. They’ve created an image of strength but are very weak. We will win.
Send my love to Roscoe.

Rations are dwindling. Morale is low.
The Trump supporters we captured refused to share bathrooms with our trans troops.
We told them it was either that or they could piss in their own corn meal and eat it.
And they did. To “own the libs”.

Spying on a battalion of MAGA. Their red hats have faded to pink in the sun causing chaos in the ranks. Soldiers are yelling “bad guy with a gun” and shooting each other.
Will be home by Labor Day.#secondcivilwarletters

Arrived deep in the woods of Bowling Green. I fear we may be surrounded. The enemy remains out of sight, but the aroma of Hot Pockets and hand lotion permeates the air. This may be the end.
PS dont check my browsing history.#secondcivilwarletters

Our plan worked. Their love of our candy helped us strike the final blow, and bring the wall down. We shall celebrate by finally putting a taco truck on every corner #secondcivilwarletters pic.twitter.com/iNfkuks4t3

My dear wife,
Most of my battalion has succumbed to smallpox. The horrid disease was thought to have been eradicated shortly after the last civil war, but the enemy troops we recently faced were all unvaccinated. #secondcivilwarletters
