InfoWars host Alex Jones said that liberals were planning to start a second Civil War tomorrow. While it seems pretty implausible, people online have some ideas about what letters from this hypothetical war might look like.

Jones is known for promoting outlandish—and offensive—right-leaning conspiracy theories, but his idea that liberals were planning on launching a Civil War to mark Independence Day caught fire online on Monday, with many liberals wondering why they weren’t told of such a momentous occasion.

As the fervor around Jones’ nonsensical declaration grew on Tuesday, some Twitter users wondered what letters from the “Second Civil War” might look like given today’s society, using the format, tone, and style seen in letters written during the (real) Civil War.

The mocking posts coalesced around the #SecondCivilWarLetters hashtag, and you may recognize many of the names of the generals who are fighting.

The results were pretty hilarious.


Kellyanne Conway’s “Bowling Green massacre” gaffe was brought into it.


However, not everyone was mocking President Donald Trump. Some conservatives got in on the hashtag.

Some people envisioned it the liberal army losing in this “civil war.”


Good wholesome meme.
