After Alex Jones claimed that liberals would start a second Civil War on the 4th of July, the internet quickly devolved into two opposing sides: Those who believed the crackpot conspiracy theorist and those who mocked the sheer craziness of it all.

After all, what good progressive would schedule a massive protest without posting it on Facebook? Why didn’t we get invites?! We’d have brought brownies.

Twitter users spent the weekend writing #secondcivilwarletters to send home from the front lines of the imaginary snowflake uprising with hilarious results. Even celebrities and politicians got involved – including Republican Senator Orrin Hatch.

But what happened to the civil war that never happened? It got rescheduled. Tell your friends so we’re ready next time.

And just for fun, here’s the video that started it all.
