My take on Hillary's speech that slammed the AltRight today:

Her speech in Reno, NV today was originally going to be about small business, but it was changed to what it will be known for a long time: a repudiation of the racist white nationalist ideology called Alt-Right. She took down Donald Trump’s long record of racism and bigotry, from the 1970s until today: Gonzalo Curiel, referring to Mexicans as “rapists”, Birther conspiracies, Star of David tweet, and housing discrimination, to name a few. She pummeled Alex Jones and Breitbart “News” for being the main mouthpieces for this hate-fueled movement called the “AltRight.” She also took down Russian leader Vladimir Putin for his role in propping up far-right AltRight-influenced parties across the world. It is no surprise that Trump is propped up by AltRight demagogues like Stephen Bannon, Milo Yiannopoulos, Mike Cernovich, Jim Hoft, and company. The AltRight’s dangerous and vicious ideology must be defeated at all costs! In order to defeat this monstrous racist, sexist, misogynistic, xenophobic, transphobic, Anti-Semitic, and Islamophobic ideology, please vote Clinton/Kaine (or anyone other than Trump/Pence) this Fall!

About the Ferguson thing: The cop was severely beaten and even suffered a major eye injury, which many people think caused him to miss Mike Brown so many times. And there are also many witnesses who claim to have seen Mike Brown rush back at the cop after assaulting him in the car (and I know this is pretty much irrelevant, but just to let you know, some of those witnesses were black). So can't you at least give this guy the presumption of innocence please?

On the right is the image right-wing pundit Jim Hoft used to prove that Darren Wilson had an orbital blowout fracture. On the left is a CT scan of a blowout fracture, taken at the University of Iowa in 2008 and used on a website explaining what orbital blowout fractures are. If you look carefully or casually or at all in any way using eyeballs of any kind, you’ll notice that they’re the same image, except that the one on the right has been edited so that it no longer includes the date or location. That’s because the story was made up.

In video taken after the shooting, you can see Wilson walking around uninjured. His eye socket is not busted, nor is his jaw (an addition to the story I’ve seen since it’s been on its telephone game journey across the internet). In addition, Michael Brown’s autopsy showed no sign of struggle. And the claim that over a dozen witnesses agreed with the cop’s story were fabricated, made up by either police or a local journalist who has been on leave since March and is not reporting officially or unofficially on the situation in Ferguson. None of the actual witnesses (the ones who exist and are not made up) agree with the cop’s story.

Given that everything so far in defense of Wilson has been made up, police have been intentionally spreading lies to make Wilson look better and Brown look worse, and they deleted Wilson’s social media presence and helped him flee town before revealing his identity (making it impossible to know what he may have said about the case or comments he may have made about other subjects that could paint a picture of who he is as a person), it’s pretty hard to presume they’re not hiding something.
