An ongoing disinformation campaign aimed at antifa — shorthand for antifascist or antifascism — took a new turn Thursday as freshly created fake Twitter accounts spread false and inflammatory information about antifa's plans for the Fourth of July.

One of the fake antifa accounts, @ANTIFA_DC, shared information suggesting antifascists were planning to disrupt a parade in Washington, D.C., writing: "F-ck the #TrumpParade. See you in the street, fascists."

"Fight us, fascists," the account wrote. Another tweet included a graphic for a fake antifa event called the "Stop the Fascists Parade."
