The name Shirley Teter should be all over the headlines in North Carolina. But it’s not.
Teter was the woman who accused an elderly and mostly blind man of punching her outside a Trump campaign rally.
Local and national media descended on the story, holding it up as evidence of how violent Trump supporters are.
Then came a video from James O’Keefe and Project Veritas which exposed multiple Democrat operatives describing how they train and pay agitators to incite violence at Trump events.
In the video, they claim the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton campaign know about it. Three key players are mentioned in this video: Scott Foval (American United for Change), Bob Creamer (Democracy Partners) and Brad Woodhouse (American United for Change, Correct the Record & American Bridge).
A fourth name was mentioned — Aaron Black, who says he is the Deputy Response Director for the DNC for “all things Trump on the ground.”. Here’s his Democracy Partners bio. Black says in the video, “No one is supposed to know about me.”.
WATCH (NSFW Language):
One of these paid and trained agitators was identified as Shirley Teeter. In the video, Foval admits, “she was one of our activists.” who had been “trained to bird dog”.
Bird dogging is a tactic employed to create an incident, usually involving someone who is disabled in some way or elderly. Using someone vulnerable maximizes the media frenzy and subsequent outrage.
Where is the media now?
The revelation in the Project Veritas video that Teeter was a planted instigator has prompted exactly ONE outlet to revisit the original story.
That outlet revisiting their original reporting is WLOS, who interviewed Teter after the alleged ‘punching’ incident. WLOS did not interview Campbell in that article. In that report, Teter admitted she was the instigator:
“I said, ‘You better learn to speak Russian,’ and I said, ‘The first two words are going to be ha ha.’ He stopped in his tracks, and he turned around and just cold-cocked me,” Teter said.
She was punched in the face.
According to Richard Campbell, he felt a hand on him and turned to see who it was. When he did, Teter fell down.
To their credit, WLOS re-interviewed Teter, who has now changed her story. She now has told WLOS that perhaps Campbell didn’t ‘cold-cock’ her, “it’s possible that he could have struck her with his backhand.”
A video that was posted to Facebook of the altercation is below.
Teter can be seen clearly shadowing Richard Campbell, who is being led through the crowd due to his eyesight issues. Teter is also seen reaching out towards Campbell. It is unclear what exactly happens next, however given Teter has now changed her statement and Project Veritas uncovering a agitator training, one has to wonder.
Where are the local authorities? What this woman did is criminal.
You write a very timely piece as we go into early voting and come off a Presidential Debate where Donald Trump calls out the Fraud as Hillary. Many of us in Wake County are witnessing voter oppression as we poll greet at early voting sites; the #Democrat #Hierarchy exists. Your article needs to receive reader respect, reader beware of the enemy and shared on social media from coast to coast. Your an incredible writer of Truth and you inspire many of us to keep on keeping on.
Thank you for the kind words and for your readership.
Keep an eye out, American Lens has just soft launched. I’m a Co-founder and managing editor there.
Only WLOS has revisited the fake assault charge? Not surprising.
Imagine my schadenfreude in reading a Raleigh News and Observer article reporting on the 1.5 million the Raleigh News and Observer was ordered to pay by a Wake County jury in a libel suit brought by an SBI forensics employee.
Sadly, people are only now coming to the realization of how the print and television media are propaganda mouthpieces for the Democratic Party. What about the false accusation by Roy Cooper that Gov. McCrory was under a federal criminal investigation? Any reporting on that?
