Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it’s first reported.

A fascist propaganda video is played to thousands of Trump supporters in D.C. at approximately 10:57 a.m., immediately following Rudy Giuliani telling the crowd to have “trial by combat.”

The link below is an in-depth explanation of the fascist techniques used in the video. Here’s a summary of the video, which was paid for by Women for America First:

Donald Trump: What truly matters is not which party controls our government but whether our government is controlled by the people.

*eery music over photos of Washington, the Hollywood sign, global organizations, and Joe Biden*

DT: For too long, this small group in our nation’s Capitol has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.

*images of Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, a soldier’s funeral*

DT: The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country.

*images of homeless people, children, rundown houses, stressed parents*

DT: That all changes starting right here and right now.

*music becomes empowering, we see images of Trump at campaign events, in the White House, and with the military, mixed with images of his supporters cheering him on at different events*

*images of factories, rockets, and military jets, followed by images of Joe Biden, empty classrooms, closed businesses, Black Lives Matter protests, etc.*

*more images of Trump, campaign events, the military, signs that say “jobs,” etc.*


To a scholar of fascist propaganda, well-versed in the history of the National Socialist’s pioneering use of videos in political propaganda, it was clear, watching it, what dangers it portended. In it, we see themes and tactics that history warns pose a violent threat to liberal democracy. Given the aims of fascist propaganda – to incite and mobilize – the events that followed were predictable.

Images and videos may be missing from posts. This is a temporary problem that should resolve itself in the next couple days. If it doesn’t, we will go through and re-add media to posts beginning next week.
