*Fox News host Sean Hannity again Wednesday compared the Black Lives Matter movement to the Ku Klux Klan.

During a “Race In America” segment, Hannity became irate over news that the Democratic National Committee said it would allow the Black Lives Matter to host a town hall forum with candidates.

“Why don’t you let the [Ku Klux] Klan host the party?” Hannity asked.

“Your Democratic Party — not all lives matter, just black lives matter — is going to allow the ‘pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon’ group to host a Democratic forum?” he asked guest and fellow Fox News employee Juan Williams.

Hannity proceeded to give his skewed interpretation of Black Lives Matter and its platform. Conservative radio host Larry Elder chimed in with his thoughts on why Democrats are not rejecting Black Lives Matter outright.

Elder said the Dems are “scared to death” about Donald Trump, and claimed polls show black voters are growing in support for the real estate mogul, which he said chips away at what has traditionally been a “monolithic” voting bloc for Democrats and could help explain the party’s acceptance of Black Lives Matter.

Williams attempted to explain the movement’s mission.

“They’re a special interest group and they are saying they want attention for their issue,” Williams said.

“Right, the ‘pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon’ group,” Hannity interrupted.

“I don’t think that’s fair,” Williams said.

Hannity continued to bring up the “pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon” chant, which originated in August during a Black Lives Matter protest at the Minnesota State Fair. After the phrase drew sharp criticism from law enforcement, a Minnesota Black Lives Matter organizer told The Associated Press that the protesters’ 30-second chant wasn’t meant to condone violence against police.
