Yesterday, Fox and Friends hosted Diamond and Silk, two black Trump surrogates who, of course, immediately blamed the racial violence in Charlottesville on Democrats:

"Neo-Nazi groups, the KKK, which was created by the Democrats, all of these other groups, they were all spewing hate and they were all creating violence, and all of them should be condemned and denounced. Period," Diamond told "Fox & Friends."

... "The president cannot be one-sided. He has to look at everything that's going on," Diamond said. "I didn't like the white nationalists, the KKK, the neo-Nazis, David Duke, but I also didn't like Black Lives Matter and Antifa."

When it comes to the Confederate statues, Diamond says to put them in a museum, noting that the Democrats founded the Ku Klux Klan.

"We can never let the Democrats forget what they did to out country when it comes to intimidating and manipulating people in order to dominate," she concluded.
This is a point also being made by Dinesh D'Souza, who -- alas for America -- had the good fortune to publish a book titled The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left mere weeks before Charlottesville blew up.

But to the best of my knowledge, even D'Souza hasn't named Hillary Clinton one of the villains of Charlottesville. Diamond and Silk have. Go to 2:52 in the video above.
DIAMOND: Can I just make another point? We had Hillary Clinton saying, "I'm going to start the resistance movement." See, those things are part of the problem, and it needs to be addressed. Because we shouldn't be resisting the administration, the president. We should all be living in harmony and getting along. And we're going to have to learn how to agree to disagree, especially when we have a disagreement in this country.
Yes, we're fighting in the streets because -- gasp -- a Democrat has expressed open disapproval of a Republican. Intolerable! Under those circumstances, plowing into a crowd of left-leaning demonstrators with murderous intent is practically self-defense!

Right-wingers greatly appreciate having their prejudices affirmed by black and brown conservatives. And they love being told that everything bad in the world is part of one many-tentacled liberal octopus.
