Last years annual event for Emerge-USA was a disaster, losing keynote speaker Debbie Wasserman Schultz last minute over criticism leveled against her for helping to raise money for an organization whose leadership actively supports terror-related groups and individuals targeting the U.S. and Israel. Now, Emerge is taking no chances and will be holding a banquet featuring a Congressman (and fellow traveler) who is not as shy about his Islamist support, Keith Ellison.
On Saturday, April 20, Emerge will be sponsoring a benefit dinner with United States Representative Keith Ellison as the featured speaker.

The Khalidi tape shows Obama at a 2003 farewell party for radical Palestinian academic and activist Rashid Khalidi, and reportedly features vitriolic anti-Israel rhetoric.
Reporter Peter Wallsten—now with the Wall Street Journal—revealed the existence of the tape in an article on Obamas pro-Palestinian background. Obamas participation in the Khalidi event, Wallsten wrote, had led Palestinian-Americans to believe “that Obama is more receptive to their viewpoint than he is willing to say.”
