Internal document shows Trump officials were told to make comments sympathetic to Kyle Rittenhouse

Rittenhouse should be described as defending himself from rioters in Kenosha, according to DHS talking points obtained by NBC News.

Federal law enforcement officials were directed to make public comments sympathetic to Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged with fatally shooting two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, according to internal Department of Homeland Security talking points obtained by NBC News.

In preparing Homeland Security officials for questions about Rittenhouse from the media, the document suggests that they note that he “took his rifle to the scene of the rioting to help defend small business owners.”

Another set of talking points distributed to Homeland Security officials said the media were incorrectly labeling the group Patriot Prayer as racists after clashes erupted between the group and protesters in Portland, Oregon.

It is unclear whether any of the talking points originated at the White House or within Homeland Security’s own press office.

There is more at the link above.    It is clear that this administration is racist and willing to use law enforcement to push racist ideals.    They are proving the point of the BLM movement, a lot of law enforcement is either racist or willing to go along with racist.   Hugs

      Hello Nan. You mean the boy’s lawyer? Yes I noticed that. I wonder if there was communication between the lawyer, the DOJ, and the White House on the situation. Look it is clear now that Steven Miller is not the only rabid racist in the WH. The fact he has a Jewish mother would make him one of the first victim of the very white rule he wants to bring into effect in our country. I still don’t understand the hate he has for colored people and the idea of white people being above all others, but it is clear from his teen video he feels that way.
      It is clear if it was not before that the majority of tRump cult members are racist, even the ones who don’t admit it. They hide it behind platitudes of being for Republican values, or against socialism, or against what ever sin the Clintons did. But if they wont listen to evidence and truth, then what they are hiding is a real racist motive. They may not be active racist, but simply believe in the current racial white privilege maybe with out realizing it. It has simply been that way all their life and they want what they have known all their life to continue. It is not quite correct to assign racism to these people even though it is correctly racism, they in their hearts and mind simply want what the society they grew up with to keep going without change. They are unable to deal with the changes in society, the new rules, so they cling to disparaging the other side, the Democrats are wrong and will ruin the world type thing. What it really shows is they are terrified of the new landscape of interaction and don’t understand the changes in our country and so desperately want to return to the 1950’s. They want to return to their comfort zone! That is what I have been saying of every 70 to upper 80 year old in congress, and including the ones running for president. They want a return to their comfort zone. We must change the system if we are to have any progress in this country. Hugs

        No, I was referring to the blogger that defended Rittenhouse. Remember, he wrote: all he did was try to protect the property rights people in his community, help anyone injured in the protest …. Right out of the DHS talking points!

          Hello Nan. Oh yes, it does seem some powerful people have passed the word out how to respond on the right wing networks. There was Qanon Republican candidate who repeated these talking points in one of her videos. Hugs

    Scottie – tRump could probly shoot someone on 5th Ave., on live TV, and not lose any votes (from his base,) they would all cheer, and give him a standing ovation.
