"The principle blame is with the Neo-Nazis because they deliberately set up to make trouble and they did." I read it in a newspaper. What does "The principle blame is with the Neo-Nazis" it mean? "Blame is with someone" I couldn't find any phrasal verb like this.

This is, without my commenting on the rights and wrongs of the issue, a comment against those who would suggest that both sides were at fault. The writer is suggesting that the Neo-Nazis set out to cause trouble, so they are more responsible for the problem than those who protested against them. Some suggested that the Neo-Nazis and the people who tried to stop them were both to blame, which this writer would regard as false equivalence.
