Milton William Cooper was a probably the most well known “truther” until his death in 2001. He was also, in my opinion, a liar that used used ridiculous fairy tales to propel himself to underground recognition and sell books. He explains his “awakening” as sighting a high tech UFO while in the Navy and being forced to keep quiet about it by his superiors.
From his book “Behold The Pale Horse”:
“I turned, raising my binoculars to my eyes just in time to see a huge disk rise from beneath the ocean, water streaming from the air around it, tumble lazily on its axis, and disappear into the clouds. My heart beat wildly. I tried to talk but couldn’t; then I changed my mind and decided I didn’t want to say that, anyway. I had seen a flying saucer the size of an aircraft carrier come right out of the ocean and fly into the clouds”(pg.24)
His book has a some truth in it, especially to someone unfamiliar with conspiratorial information, but it is mixed with crazy lies, fear-mongering, and insane paranoia:
“The patriot data bank is constantly updated so that when the appointed hour arrives all patriots can be rounded up with little if any effort. The plan calls for this to be accomplished in the dead of night on a national holiday. The most likely holiday is Thanksgiving, when everyone, no matter the religion, race, or creed, will be at home. The targets will be ripe for the picking after a heavy meal, maybe some alcoholic beverages, and during a deep sleep. There is a traitor in the patriot movement who provides the Secret Government with accurate names and addresses of patriots who will fight to protect and defend the Constitution.
MY RECOMMENDATION IS THAT NO PATRIOT SHOULD EVER BE AT HOME OR AT THE HOME OF ANY FAMILY MEMBER ON ANY HOLIDAY EVER AGAIN UNTIL THE TRAITORS HAVE BEEN HUNG AND THE CONSTITUTION RESTORED AS THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND.”(emphasis in book pg.116)
Obviously, anything this man said can hardly be taken seriously but unfortunately the “network of secret societies” myth has kept many honest truth seekers chasing ghosts for sometimes years on end(this author included). One must always look at the source when considering such wild conspiracy theories.
As far as this being a “Masonic” conspiracy let’s see what is says about initiation into the 7th Degree on page 249 of the official Masonic textbook entitled “Duncan’s Ritual’s”:
“For the good of Masonry, generally, but the Jewish nation in particular.”
The French Masonic magazine Le Symbolisme stated in July 1928 that: “The most important duty of freemasonry must be to glorify the Jews, which has preserved the unchanged divine standard of wisdom.”
Freemasonry is based on the Jewish Kabbalah, there is a Star Of David on the wall of every lodge and their main symbol is the “Temple Of Solomon”
Rabbi Isaac Wise, chairman of B’nai B’rith Ohio stated in The Israelite of America on August 3, 1866: “freemasonry is a Jewish establishment, whose history, grades, official appointments, passwords and explanations are Jewish from beginning to end”.
The Jewish Tribune in New York wrote on October 28, 1927: “Masonry is based on Judaism. Eliminate the teachings of Judaism and what is left?”
The Jewish Guardian on April 12, 1922: “Freemasonry is born out of Israel”
Freemasonry is nothing more than Judaism for Gentiles, used as a recruiting ground for the corrupt traitors who are willing to sell out their own people to unwittingly serve the Jewish agenda. Once “initiated” they develop a feeling of superiority, much as the Jews have, but instead of referring to the rest of us as the “goyim” they call us the “profane”.
The founder of modern Zionism Theodore Herzl wrote in his book “Tagebucher”(1895): “In the present nations, freemasonry is only of benefit to the Jews, but it shall be abolished later.”
It is hard to tell whether there was any sincerity to this man at all but with all his boasts about being at the “center of the truth movement” we cannot write this off as mere ignorance since other well-known patriots such as Dr. William Pierce had already been documenting the extent of Jewish control in great detail every year before Cooper even came on the scene.
