Cafferty Reads Email Comparing Limbaugh and Hannity to KKK

cafferty_12-15.jpgDuring his Cafferty File segment on Friday CNN’s Jack Cafferty asked viewers: “Should Republicans stop listening to Rush Limbaugh?”

Newsbusters reports Cafferty referred to the radio host as “that gasbag Limbaugh,” while referencing comments made by Colin Powell last week during an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria.

While reading viewer emails after the initial set-up, all of which were anti-Limbaugh, he relayed a very serious charge from “Connie in Chicago.” Cafferty read:

Yes! Limbaugh is a far-right agitator of the worst sort with a 1950′s mentality of what values 21st century America should reflect. I expect him and other like-minded Sean Hannitys of the world to step out of their closet and display their white sheets and dunce caps. Limbaugh is a bad joke.

Interestingly, the graphic on the screen only displayed the first two sentences of the email.
