Military Career

Falsifying Military History

"You know that silver star he always talks about? The story that goes with it? He never served in Vietnam. He didn't sign up till '77 and never saw combat. He's a fraud and a liar, Lewis. He didn't serve, not like you. And he's not worth your respect."
Curtis Hoyle to Lewis Wilson[src]

"April, 1968. About 20 miles west of Tam Kỳ. I killed thirteen of those gooks with their own grenades. "For gallantry in action." You guys have no idea how good you got it."

Protest with Wilson

"There's a guy on trial in there. A good man, a teacher, who carried a gun into the classroom–"
"Okay, so you are protesting."
―O'Connor and Fahey[src]

O'Connor was joined by Lewis Wilson outside the New York State Supreme Court Building, where the two protested the case. When a New York City Police Department officer approached them to ordered that they leave the premises, O'Connor pleased with Wilson to comply but Wilson refused to move, saying that the courthouse was public property and that he was free to protest. When the officer falsely stated Wilson had attempted to reach for the officers weapon, O'Connor quickly made his exit from the situation.[1]

Confrontation and Death

"You have my records? Where'd you get my records from? The internet? You know... the Jews run the internet."
"What's the name of the air base outside of Tam Kỳ? Well, you could google it. But if you were there, you would know."
―O'Connor and Lewis Wilson[src]

After looking into O'Connor himself, Wilson paid him a visit. O'Connor started to tell stories about how the New York City Police Department spit on them when he returned from Vietnam but Wilson interrupted him with knowledge of O'Connor's actual military background, from Texas, learned from his army records. After denying the validity of Wilson's information, Wilson counters by asking him to name of the air base outside Tam Kỳ without googling. O'Connor is unable and demanded Wilson get out of his house and Wilson becomes angry, calls him a liar and threw a punch. A scuffle ensued and O'Connor grabbed a knife, which he lost to Wilson who stabbed him in the stomach. After a pause, Wilson proceeded to stab him over and over until he bled out in the arm chair and died.[1]

Personality

"You're blind, asshole. Don't rag on me because I can see."
―O'Connor to Isaac Lange[src]

O'Connor was an angry man with a strong sense of persecution, seeing those who suffered from mental health issues as weak and in needing of a strong hand to force them to act as O'Connor felt men were supposed to. O'Connor had little sympathy for the men he encountered, dismissing their trauma and the struggles that come with it as being simply because they weren't tough enough and sneered at people like Curtis Hoyle for not being tougher on them and seeing the modern generation as weak compared to his own.

Despite all his claims, O'Connor's behavior was nothing but bluster. He loudly spoke about his service in Vietnam and his experience as a battle hardened veteran who earned a Silver Star for his actions when he didn't serve until well after the war had ended and never saw combat, never mind do anything that would earn him such a prestigious commendation. O'Connor possessed a number of far right-wing views that he was eager to express loudly at every opportunity, such as claiming that white males were an oppressed minority, supporting vigilante behavior and the right to bear arms, dismissing mental health issues and also a conspiracy theorist and anti-semite.

While he was mainly abrasive and unpleasant, O'Connor could be surprisingly charismatic and seems to have tailored his rhetoric to appeal to people like Lewis Wilson who were at their lowest and most uncertain point and desperate for someone to offer guidance. Ultimately, O'Connor was a callous, cowardly and deeply unpleasant man who used people with serious issues as a way to bolster his own ego and ended up paying a serious price for it.
