Alex Jones announced that liberals are planning a Second Civil War. Twitter heard him.

The year is 2018. We live in a world we could never have imagined was possible. Our president attacks minorities, the free press, and occasionally tries to incite nuclear war from his Twitter account.

This month has been particularly egregious. So, Alex Jones, cashing in on times of trauma and discord as he always does, delivered this clarion call: the Liberal Democrats are planning to launch a Second Civil War on the 4th of July.

“Liberal Democrats are planning to launch Civil War on July 4th. Breaking news.”

-Alex Jones, blessed prophet and totally respectable human being

Twitter heard him.

We have been lucky enough to be privy to the heart-wrenching correspondence #lettersfromthesecondcivilwar shared by our brave comrades on Twitter.

We are ready at arms, comrades. Many have already gone to battle. Behold these letters from our brave soldiers on the front lines, and the difficult plight they have faced.

Like the rare apostle of extraordinary taste and benevolent vigilante of loyal curation I am, I have scoured endless pages of these tweets, suffering much heartache at the plight of these brave few, so that I may deliver unto you those most rarest gems of the internet, because I’ve never let you down.

Here are the best of Twitter’s #SecondCivilWarLetters.

Stay strong, soldiers. War is hell.
