It's the 5G

Vaccines are one of the greatest scientific triumphs of all time.

To not use them during a pandemic is deeply irresponsible and is killing thousands of people this week. How many people do vaccines kill. Close to zero. That is not hypnosis that reality.

Refusing to vaccinate should put you at the back of the line in every medical center. And insurance companies should be able to raise rates accordingly.

Aside from his work with the "Brown Eyed Girl" singer, Clapton also released the song "This Has Gotta Stop" last year, with a similar message: "I can't take this BS any longer / It's gone far enough / You want to claim my soul / you'll have to come and break down this door."


I can't decide what I like better about these lyrics...the complex subtlety, or the clever way he rhymes the words "enough" and "door."

Eventually we'll all collectively realize that people good in one aspect of their lives don't have to be good in any other aspects of their lives.

When he first spoke out against vaccines, I kind of understood his point. He'd had a very bad reaction to a vaccine that amplified his neuropathy and he (so he claims) honestly thought he would never be able to play guitar again.

But this crap? He's gone full-on "old man yells at cloud."

That's wife-beating racist Eric Clapton to you subby. Always use his correct title.

Eh, throw everything he says out the window.

I was just about to ask, isn't HE vaccinated?

Shut up, Eric Clapton, you cock.

Seems appropriate here.

Just forget the facts

and never get vaxxed

Cocaine!

Preferably the same one that watched his kid back in '91.

Clapton would never let a bag of cocaine fall out a window.

Isn't he saying that people are being hypnotized through YouTube... via a YouTube video?

Pssst, insurance company don't need reasons to raise rates

I'm pretty sure this dude has been a well-known asshole since before I was born.

I mean, this shiathog had an entire anti-racism organization formed just to counter his public racism.

Clapton was already a case study in taking his accumulated public goodwill and using it to start a farking bonfire.  He hasn't actually released any music anyone likes since the 1990s, and instead of coasting on his legacy he decided to intentionally use the platform granted by his old music to go full "let me tell you what I know about the negro" in public basically every opportunity he got to be in a room with a microphone, something made significantly more offensive by almost all of his money coming from Blues music.

That he'd continue his trend into anti-vaxxer territory is the least surprising thing ever, this has been how shiat's been going with him for a while now.  I kinda vote we just ignore it, it's not like he's gonna come out with a hot new single that dominates the airwaves and forces us to contemplate whether to boycott him or not, any money you've spent on him was almost certainly decades ago and a sunk cost.

Those read like lyrics an angry 12 year old would write.

So he gets vaccinated then declares himself as a hero of the unvaccinated and openly states he's enjoying the career bump. You can just openly lie to these people, they are eager to pay you to do it.

I've started mentally switching his last name to Cartman, and it seems to track pretty well.
 
2022-01-24 6:08:08 PM  
Anyone that is basing their medical decisions on what some old, washed-up guitar player says deserves the health they end up with. Morons like this are why we will never beat this, they have taken their self-assured stupidity and weaponized it against Science and medical professionals. I don't know where we go from here with so many people working against even trying to control this, forget about beating it.
 
2022-01-24 6:08:26 PM  
Yeah.... no. I'm vaxxed and boosted. I can state with near-100% certainty that I'm not "hypnotized."

I'd chat more, but, the Amazing Alexander is about to start his show.

Yeah I'd bet dollars to doughnuts his story about a bad vaccine reaction is total bullshiat.

It's strange some of these folks we so successful at hiding Derp for so long.  I mean the air has been leaking out of Clapton's illusion for a while now, but think of the decades before that when it seemed natural to refer to him as a genius.

His positive public image until recently is incredibly baffling, given that he has very publicly been a massive asshat since the 70s.
 
2022-01-24 6:28:08 PM  
Can he just join Meat Loaf already?

No, I'm not apologizing for that.

Eric, baby, nobody is looking to break down your door. In fact, if you just stay behind it problem solved really. It's the going out among the public unvaccinated that's the issue. Please, keep inside with your door closed.

He never mainlined. Rich ppl generally snort the shiat. Clapton likely is more afraid of needles than Black people.

he's probably been watch Russell Brands video and i'm sure lots of Sky News.

The only thing more boring than listening to Eric Clapton play guitar is listening to Eric Clapton without a guitar

You know how when one of your childhood heroes turns out to be a complete and utter asshole and you have all these conflicting emotions about whether it's still possible to love their work knowing what you know now about their character?

I don't, because I've always hated Eric Clapton, and it feels nice to be vindicated.

"Bat Out Of Wuhan" does have a nice ring to it, though - the vocals are good, the guitar sucks, and they both forget the lyrics most of the time.

Further, scientific break-throughs, like cures for cancer, should only be available to vaccinated people / people who trust science.

"The good news is, there's a shot we can give you that makes it go away in 10 minutes"

"The bad news is, I see here, you, and I quote, don't trust science"

Eric Clapton songs (at least the early ones)

Woody Allen movies (al least the early ones)

Fat Albert cartoons (never liked The Cosby Show)

Dave Chapelle.

Etc.

I think our reality has evolved to enjoying things in the moment, but having to be prepared to eventually let them go.

if any of you took 2 seconds to even understand the quote, you wouldn't be arguing.
First of all, the mass hypnosis thing can still be true, even if the vax itself is beneficial to take.

Its simply saying that thru the media, and the words of our leaders, medical professionals, and such, we form collective ideas, and if our neighbor believes it, it reinforces our own belief.

A liberal believing in the fake Trump dossier is no different than a conservative believing the election was stolen.  ALL people fall prey to this.  You don't have to get defensive about it.

We're ALL manipulatable.   Knowing this is the first step to help avoiding it.
