"Behold A Pale Horse" includes the full text of the Protocols of
the Elders of Zion, a vicious anti-Semitic document forged, if I
remember correctly, by the Czarist secret police. Cooper
subsequently (again if I remember correctly) said it really
wasn't about Jews, although of course it purports to be a secret
Jewish document detailing plans for various atrocities.

My own experience with Cooper is very brief. I saw him give a
talk in Los Angeles in 1988 or 1989. When he said the aliens were
responsible for gun control, the crowd burst into cheers, and I
had the distinct feeling that I'd come to the wrong place.

What was most ludicrous, however, was his notion of history. He
said that the aliens had caused the US to intervene on the side
of the communists during the Russian revolution. This is
problematic on two counts. First, the US did send a small number
of troops to Russia during the revolution, but sent them to help
the anti-communists.

Second, and much funnier, Cooper also said in the same talk that
the aliens came to earth in 1947, some thirty years after the
Russian revolution. Though of course maybe they had time
machines, and he forgot to tell us that!
