Michael Collins Piper Has Passed Away

I first heard rumbling that Michael Collins Piper had passed away on Facebook, but when I did an internet search nothing came up. Apparently it is true, but there is still not a lot of news on it. MCP was a controversial figure because of his alleged antisemitism and conspiracy theorizing, but his passing is worth noting because he was a not insignificant figure in certain segments of the alternative right.

    He was right on Iraq. That was done largely for Israel. It doesn’t make sense otherwise.

    Sad to hear of his passing.

    This is a good quote:

    “With 760 dead in Iraq and over 3,000 maimed for life, home folks continue to argue why we are in Iraq — and how to get out . . . Even resident Bush acknowledges that Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9-11. . . Of course there were no weapons of mass destruction. Israel’s intelligence, Mossad, knows what’s going on in Iraq. They are the best. They have to know. Israel’s survival depends on knowing. Israel long since would have taken us to the weapons of mass destruction if there were any or if they had been removed. With Iraq no threat, why invade a sovereign country? The answer: President Bush’s policy to secure Israel.”

    Hollings and Thurmond both had sense, unlike SC’s current senators.

    Sad. He was the last of the Brown/Black/Red Carto sorts who could pass for a journalist. His association with Mark Lane (no friend of ours, see the Kool-Aid thing) should remove modern stigma.
