Democrats are attempting to use the killing of a black teenager by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, to "wipe out" the Republican Party in the November midterm elections, Rush Limbaugh says.

The radio commentator told his millions of "Dittohead" listeners on Tuesday: "[Democrats] have always attempted to play the race card for turnout in the November elections. Here comes this event, and it is made to order."

"They're trying to use Ferguson to ramp up black turnout for the midterms. This is about wiping out the Republican Party. This is about doing away with the two-party system. This is about full-fledged, unbridled power and a grab for it. This is about wiping out everybody who opposes Obama. The end result is the end and absence of any opposition.

"That's what Ferguson's all about.

"In case you have any doubts about this, there are now photos of a Democrat voter registration tent that has been set up in Ferguson. The death of Michael Brown is being used to register Democrats in Ferguson, Missouri, practically right next to the memorial for the kid.

"On top of that, we've got the Justice Brothers — that would be the Rev. Jackson and Al Sharpton. They are now conducting voter registration drives in churches and fast-food joints in Ferguson. Don't bother asking why the IRS lets them get away with that."

Brown, 18, died on Aug. 9 in an altercation with Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, 28, setting off riots, looting, violence, and eventually, activation of National Guard units to patrol Ferguson.

Meanwhile, Ferguson residents wait to see what will happen to Wilson in the justice system.

"They're gonna indict the cop no matter what," Limbaugh predicted. "That's in the cards.
"The Democrats ... are trying to paint a picture that this is what America has always been, and the myth is that young, innocent blacks are gunned down by white police departments every day in this country. Of course, that isn't true.

"This investigation is going to take months, they're admitting. This investigation, I predict to you, will terminate shortly after the November elections," Limbaugh said.

Asking how many FBI agents were sent to Benghazi, Libya, or assigned to the IRS tea party investigation, Limbaugh noted, "None," but added, "Forty FBI agents are pounding the pavement in Ferguson, Missouri, and guess who's showing up tomorrow? Good old Eric Holder himself, the attorney general ... He might not stay overnight. It might not take that long to go in and tell everyone how this is going to end."

"The myth is that this happens all the time, but you see, folks, this is a really rare occurrence, which is one of the reasons why it's such a big news story. Ferguson stands alone."

Obama, Limbaugh noted, "may have envisioned a full-fledged wipe-out of the Republican Party," but, he added, "I think this is going to backfire on all of these people in November. They do not know how many millions of people resent the hell out of what they are doing."
