Meme Wars is the first major account of how “Stop the Steal” went from online to real
life, from the wires to the weeds. Leading media expert Joan Donovan, Ph.D., veteran
tech journalist Emily Dreyfuss, and cultural ethnographer Brian Friedberg pull back
the curtain on the digital war rooms in which a vast collection of antiesablishmentarians
bond over hatred of liberal government and media. Together as a motley reactionary
army, they use memes and social media to seek out new recruits, spread ideologies,
and remake America according to their desires.
