Politigram ethnographer Joshua Citarella shares his observations about the online post-left, particularly its zoomer base radicalized in 2016 meme wars. We discuss how important were memes to Trumps' victory, their political journey since then, and how the left can de/re-radicalize those committed to the violent right. Finally, we discuss the phenomenon of memes becoming reality, especially in the context of Unite the Right in Charlottesville and the CHAZ/CHOP in Seattle.
