William Cooper Epitaph
I was sad to hear of the death of William Cooper who was shot to death by an Arizona deputy sheriff during a shootout in which the deputy was wounded.
William Cooper was one of the most knowledgeable experts in the field of "conspiracy science", the Illuminati, Freemasons, Ufo's and the New World Order. He was a longtime critic of the Warren Commission Report and JFK Cover-up. He was a U.S. Navy veteran who rendered many years of "Silent Service" on submarines and in Naval Intelligence. He was a man who did his duty as a "patriot" as he saw fit. Misguided though he may have been at times,
Cooper always acted from his "conscience" and sought to warn all Americans of the dangers of "creeping Socialism" and Nazism in America.
He was a longtime admirer of President John F. Kennedy. Cooper, who had been a member of the DeMolay Society as a boy, revealed to this writer the arcane symbolism. significance and meaning of the architecture of Dealey Plaza in his own words, "'an open-air temple' to the foundations of Freemasonry in America". Cooper also taught me the real meaning of "007".
I met Cooper in New York City in 1992 and spoke to him several times thereafter regarding the doctoring of the Zapruder Film and the JFK-Tippit Body Swap into mid-1990's. We discussed UFOlogy at length and there are few around today who know as much about the subject as did William Cooper, who had seen a UFO over the Pacific Ocean "as big as an aircraft carrier" tumbling end over end, entering the ocean and rising again from it. Cooper stated that the waters parted before the UFO struck the surface of the oceans "like the parting of the Red Sea in the movie, "The Ten Commandments".
In particular, I disagreed with him completely on his thesis that William Greer, the SS driver shot the president with a pistol. I felt that he was misinterpreting the doctored film and that a conclusive proof was impossible in view of the deletion of more than half the frames.
I also found Cooper too radical for me in his call for violent action against the Federal government. He was a gun-totin' Westerner who saw himself continuing in the lineage of Davey Crockett and Jim Bowie. Deep within his soul, Cooper possessed and nurtured the mythic image of the Revolutionary American standing at Concord Bridge or on the ramparts of the Alamo. He always said he'd never surrender and that he would go down shooting.
William Cooper was true to his word and his conscience to his very last breath. Whether I agreed with his views and tactics or not, I view him as "a good American". Cooper was a masterful writer and the author of Behold a Pale Horse, a book well worth reading.
With my sympathy and condolences to his family, his friends and followers I conclude with this epitaph:
"Rest in Peace, William Cooper, an American Patriot...Well done!"
