Four Directions Raising Money Online to Beat Voter-Suppression Law in North Dakota

American Indian voting rights group Four Directions is “working day and night in Indian Country” to protect the Native vote… but their server isn’t. Ever since Rachel Maddow featured OJ Semans and his organization’s efforts to fight North Dakota’s efforts to suppress the Native vote, their website has had trouble keeping up with hits from folks from around the world seeking to do justice.

If you’re trying to send money to support Four Directions and Indian voting in North Dakota, go to this ActBlue site under the Standing Rock Indian Reservation banner. Standing Rock will vote, and you can help!

    Gooooooo Four Directions!

    Pootiepublicans are anti-citizens, anti-constitution, all corrupt all the time.

    Since about 2014, 24 mostly red state leges have gone out of their way to make voting harder for mostly Democratically inclined voters to vote. Why is that? We already know their excuse of voter fraud is a red herring and has been debunked more times than Noah’s Arc..

    It’s America’s creeping apartheid, Mike, brought to you by a Republican Party that sees its days numbered.

    It’s too late. The election is next week and the filing will not be complete. In addition 4 directions is not a North Dakota corporation. They have no standing. This is why they filed so late, just to make a headlines before it is dismissed. All show. . .

    Cory, “America’s creeping apartheid” is right and all thanks to the anti-USA Pootiepublicans.

    Minneapolis Star Tribune has an article about the wonderful efforts of 4 Directions and others to provide IDs to tribal members to counteract ND Pootiepublicans’ voter suppression efforts.

    That “creeping apartheid” has apparently energized tribal members. Says, Alexis Davis, 19, chairwoman of the Turtle Mountain Youth Council, “It’s like, oh you want to make this harder for me? Oh, you want to take away my rights? It’s like, no, now I’m going to fight that, and I’m going to be more resilient, and I’m going to make sure that I’m going to go vote.”

    North Dakota wingnuts weren’t concerned about Dem voter suppression until Heitkamp won a narrow victory and since then, wingnuts have waged all out war trying to disenfranchise legal voters.

    Whitey sat on his ass and surveyed the electoral map for any discrepancies that could be used against mostly Dem voters that wouldn’t affect whitey wingnut voters. And lo and behold, they decided not having a street address was tantamount to voter fraud and went postal on Natives.

    ps OldSandwichhardasarock, you aren’t from North Dakota so put a sock in yer pie hole.

    ND Sec State Jaeger had earlier said there is virtually NO voter fraud in the state.

    If you give money to Four Directions remember they are a 501(c)4. They are just like Crossroads GPS, the conservative group co-founded by Karl Rove. You may be wondering what the difference is between a 501(c)4 and a PAC. A PAC has to reveal the donors. A 501(c)4 does not. This means that anyone from Rove to Soros could be funding Four Directions and they do not have to tell you how they spend the money and may just spend it all on wages. . .

    As far as Actblue goes they may or may not support any Native Americans. They are just a national leftist organization. If you give to this group they will just blow it all on candidates. Here is a breakdown on where Actblue spends their money. They don’t donate to causes such as Native Voting Rights and never have: https://www.opensecrets.org/pacs/expenditures.php?cycle=2018&cmte=C00401224

    KEEP YOUR MONEY LOCAL: You would be better off sending your money to the Coalition of Large Tribes (COLT) which is tax-deductible and works for Native voting rights along side Four Directions.

    The White nationalist Russian lover OS, is against this of course, what else would be new. Send some money there way as I did. The vote is that important.

    NORTH DAKOTA DEMOCRATS BUY ADS DISCOURAGING HUNTERS FROM VOTING

    The North Dakota arm of the Democratic Party is running ads on Facebook discouraging hunters from turning out to vote in Tuesday’s midterm elections.

    “ATTENTION HUNTERS: If you vote in North Dakota, you may forfeit hunting licenses you have in other states. If you want to keep your out-of-state hunting licenses, you may not want to vote in North Dakota,” read the pair of ads.

    The state party is running the ads under a Facebook page titled “Hunter Alerts,” Facebook’s ad archive shows. The “Hunter Alerts” page was created Wednesday, a day before the ads appeared on Facebook.
