Legendary rock musician Eric Clapton has just now reported that believe it or not, many of his musician friends literally almost cut him off completely because he DARED to share his opinion regarding his “disastrous side effects” after taking the vaccine. “I just don’t hear from them anymore,” he said.
“I’ve tried to reach out to fellow musicians,” Clapton said during a recent question-and-answer session regarding the COVID-19 vaccine and his reaction to the response of the powers-that-be afterward. “I just don’t hear from my musician friends anymore. My phone doesn’t ring that much anymore. I don’t even get that many emails and texts anymore. It’s very noticeable.”
The whole Clapton interview was pretty eye-opening, and it really demonstrates the very fact that we are seeing “groupthink” play out right before our very eyes. According to Vulture.com, Clapton also said that he “was ostracized, and I could feel that everywhere.”
After Clapton spoke out, he did note that he had gotten “some flack from some people that I least expected and wanted to get flack from.” However, on a positive note, he did reveal that he had welcomed the prospect of “becoming a nuisance political leader and I would love to be a nuisance to those that ‘sit around the table’ and that would give me tremendous satisfaction.”
Clapton also called out the pro-lockdown, pro-vaccine contingent’s labored use of the term “propaganda” and the way that they have “made it so that they believe that you are responsible for other people’s lives if you don’t do everything that you are told to do: “they could easily label me a murderer, and people would really believe that,” he said.
Clapton also took the time to add that he has been reading George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984” at the same that these vaccine pressures and lockdowns have been occurring, and he said that such propaganda is “clever” and “very powerful.” The Background
This all came as a result of Rolling Stone’s decision to report that Clapton had gotten an initial AstraZeneca vaccine shot last February and then he almost immediately noticed that things weren’t going well for him.
“I took the first jab of Az and straight away I had some very severe reactions that lasted ten days,” Clapton wrote in a letter regarding his experience, as noted by the magazine. “Although I did eventually recover, I was told that it would take twelve weeks before the second one.”
“About six weeks later, they went ahead and offered me the second shot, so I went ahead and took it,” Clapton added. “Needless to say, the reactions were disastrous, and my hands and feet were either frozen, burning or numb, and I was pretty much useless for two weeks. I was afraid I was never going to play ever again,” he told the Rolling Stone.
Clapton also shared in his letter that he was suffering from “peripheral neuropathy and he should have never gone near that needle” but that the “propagandists had said that the vaccine was safe for everyone.”
“Stand and Deliver”
Yet another reason that Clapton hit the headlines last year was that he recorded and released an anti-lockdown song called “Stand and Deliver” that was penned by his friend, iconic vocalist Van Morrison.
Perhaps not surprisingly, Clapton took a lot of grief from the left in regards to that tune – as did his friend Van Morrison.
No matter, because Clapton is now claiming that he “found his voice” after he was directed to Morrison and his style of music, according to the Magazine.
“Even though I was singing his words, they were echoing in my heart,” Clapton added in his letter. “Even though I recorded ‘Stand and Deliver’ in 2020, I was immediately regaled with plenty of contempt and plenty of scorn.
The Rolling Stone also noted that Clapton had said in a statement along with the song: “There are many of us who support Van and his endeavors and his efforts to save live music; this man is an inspiration. We must stand up and be counted because we are going to have to find a way out of this mess we are in. The alternatives we have are not worth thinking about. Live music is probably never going to recover.”
To his credit, Morrison has also been very vocal about both the vaccine and the lockdown procedures. For example, last September, there was a northern Ireland Health Minister who labeled several of Morrison’s songs as “dangerous.” The tunes that he was referring to were “As I Walked Out”, “Born To Be Free”, and “No More Lockdown”, which was reportedly critical of the U.K. government for using the COVID-19 lockdowns as a means to “enslave” the people.
However, Morrison wasn’t through by a long shot.
“Remember,” he tweeted to his 66,000 Twitter followers, “those who are shutting down our economy haven’t missed a single paycheck since this lockdown began. We are NOT in this together.”
What do you think about the liberals giving Eric Clapton a hard time just for speaking his mind?
