On Monday morning's edition of "Fox & Friends," Brian Kilmeade spoke with Kevin Jackson, author of "The Big Black Lie" and frequent Fox News guest, about the results of a study that found right wing extremism to be more violent than Jihadism in the U.S.

Jackson argued that Dylann Storm Roof, the 21-year-old white supremacist responsible for killing nine people in the historically-black Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, is actually of the left wing.

"In the case of Dylann Roof, they've just thrown him over in the right because he passed by a right-wing building or something," Jackson argued. "I don't know how they define that. Dylann Roof is a product of the left-wing, he's a product of their education system, firmly, and as much as they want to blame it on the right, as far as I'm concerned, you can look at everything he's done and it absolutely adds up to leftism."
