InfoWars host Alex Jones reported Sunday that Democrats are trying to start a civil war on July 4, but it seems no one, uh, told Democrats.

Jones, who’s known for spewing far-right conspiracy theories and spinning an endless cycle of fake news, claims progressive groups will be setting a violent insurgency into motion on Independence Day.

On Twitter, left-wing critics taunted Jones for the alarmist social media posts and wondered why they weren’t invited to the so-called civil war launch.

Some volunteered to help plan, aka provide much-needed tuna casserole and color coordination.

They also thought through the guest list.

Jokes aside, some people warned that Jones’ scaremongering, no matter how ridiculous, could provoke real-life violence.

As of the time of writing, one person on Twitter said the civil war had been rescheduled for July 5.
