Hillary Unleashes in Reno


We've already covered Secretary Clinton's speech in Reno, but Elaine Hurd's website Let's Talk Nevada had a special article on it:

Hillary Clinton came to Reno and delivered a speech, based on the theme that Donald Trump has ignited dangerous forces of white nationalism in America. Clinton laid out her case in step-by-step detail, using Trump’s own words, deeds and choice of campaign staff, including the controversial Stephen Bannon, formerly the editor of Breitbart, a fringe right web site.

Clinton cited the words, tweets and retweets that Trump regularly employs from the most disreputable corners of the Internet. His campaign has embraced the worst elements of racial discord in America. She accused Trump of cavorting with white supremacists, who have cynically rebranded themselves white “nationalists,” according to Clinton.

Early in her speech, she captured her thesis. “A man with a long history of racial discrimination, who traffics in dark conspiracy theories drawn from the pages of supermarket tabloids and the far reaches of the internet, should never run our government or command our military.”

Her case was the most devastating case I’ve ever heard against Trump. The facts of the examples she used from the campaign manager to Trump’s embrace of white supremacists to the outrageous vilifying of certain minority groups are beyond dispute. Trump has made the statements she cited and in some cases has defended and stuck by them. As with most of these campaign speeches, there is a lot to be gleaned from the people and activities surrounding the event.
