Not sure I understand the issue. Seems he was describing what features some folks wanted and clip feeding was on of those, The M1 Garand is clip fed and the M14, though having a detachable magazine, can be clip fed.
The term "Clip" is used for the BAR, and indeed in old government documents they call the BAR mag a "detachable clip".

I half wonder if we were wrong all along. "Facts" get on the internet, and get spread, and we all share them as gospel. Online gun circles can be a bit of an echo chamber.

Think about one of the long-standing gun "truths"; that the Germans would listen for the ping of a Garand clip. In a limited encounter, maybe, but once shooting starts no one can hear anything.
