I mean it's not his fault his parents didn't believe in inoculations.

But as a kid, I never got vaccinations 'cause of our religion [Christian Science].


Well that pretty much [Explains Everything].

Why the hell is anyone asking James Hetfield anything about covid or vaccines? Not to go all fascist or anything, but if you were on the fence and waiting for James Hetfield to chime in before making a decision we need to Ol' Yeller your ass pronto. Now, that's a judgement call but I'm comfortable making it.

It's funny how people who hate their parents as young adults invariably become them as they age.

Was it drunk or sober James?

To be fair to the dufus, they were talking about touring and whether vaccinations would be required.

Ignorance is badge people are wearing with pride these days, and they are marching the rest of us into oblivion with them. I regret bringing a child into this stupid and evil world.

Metallica.

The "hard ass" rockers who went on VH1 with a reality show with a band therapist to help them talk about their feelins.

So METAL.

True but it's amazing how early life indoctrination sticks hard. Sometimes even after it's completely rejected it comes back.

And his own beliefs are changing.

Look at what he says. He's gotten vaccinated before, but it's easy to read into that statement that he has a mild phobia regarding immunizations thanks to his entire upbringing. I read it as he's still a little freaked out by vaccines and will put them off as long as possible, but will also get vaccinated if it comes down to it. I was done with Metallica about 20 years ago, but I think it's unfair to Hetfield here if that's how he was raised. Some things from childhood imprint you for life, no matter how hard you try to fix them...

He's a typical straight edge hypocrite.

H31N0US: He's a typical straight edge hypocrite.


He's been morphing into an anti-govt right-winger for years. Loves trophy hunting, guns, cowboy hats and recently moved his entire family from CA to CO because, according to his interview on Rogan, he didn't like "the atmosphere". I'm sure he wasn't referring to the air quality. He's also the guy who wrote a paeon to the Gadsden Flag, "Don't Tread on Me" on the Black Album. Dump decades of alcohol ("and other addictions") on top of that and you have 2021 Hetfield, i.e, dumbass.

My estimation of Brad Pitt went up considerably on learning that when some interviewer asked him his opinion on the China/Tibet situation, Pitt essentially responded "What the fark are you asking me for? I'm an actor. Who gives a fark what I think about that?!"

Proof that brainwashing children is actually kind of effective.

China gives quite a fark and they're handsomely rewarding him (and others in the business) for shutting the f*ck up about it.

So... I don't know if I'd pat the guy on the back for basically pulling a MeBron.
 
2021-05-09 6:25:55 PM  
Especially considering, as some have pointed out on here, that China would literally bury anyone who DARED try to remake Seven Years In Tibet. Because how dare we paint those Buddhists in a positive light.

He didn't seem worried pouring gallons of liquor down his gullet for year and becoming a farking alcoholic. Yea, James, getting immunized is bad for you, moron. I hope you get polio.

Guy who likes hunting and gas guzzling muscle cars doesn't want to live in the vegan and Prius capitol of America. The horror.

Just what I don't need to hear, given that my stepparents were a sociopathic pedophile and an alcoholic extreme narcissist. If I ever become either one of them, please shoot me.

Anyway, Hetfield has always been a redneck (his own word). At least he didn't go the Jon Schaffer route.

Millions of dollars help.  The 'normal' anti vaxxers are telling you about it from their rascal because their ankles are the same size as their thighs.
