Eric Clapton's Covid vaccine conspiracies mark a sad final act

Bigotry and ignorance, in the age of the internet, has a way of catching up with you. And Clapton’s racism and conspiracy theories can no longer be ignored.

Clapton hasn’t just been spouting Covid vaccine misinformation over the past year — in interviews, in his inarguably terrible Covid protest single, and in his arguably even more awful collaboration with Van Morrison — he’s also been helping to bankroll the fringe, U.K.-based group of anti-vaxx musicians Jam for Freedom.

Clapton's racist rant from 1976.

Oh, it's pretty bad

Clapton asked "foreigners" at a 1976 show to raise their hands before suggesting they "should all leave."

"Not just leave the hall, leave our country... I don't want you here, in the room or in my country," he said in part.

"The Black w—s and c—s and Arabs and f—ing Jamaicans don't belong here, we don't want them here," Clapton added on stage then, using blatant racist slurs. "This is England, this is a white country, we don't want any Black w—s and c—s living here. We need to make clear to them they are not welcome."

The rant went on as he called England "a white country" made "for white people."

R2 Shocking. Sinful!

I am personally offended!

How dare this person (who I've never met) do this to me!

I am disgusted.

R5, You asked for it, you got it. Fuck off and die. Die in a grease fire, in fact. Seriously.

Dr. Peter McCullough has offended me personally. Therefore he must die!

by Anonymousreply 7October 17, 2021 4:27 AM

McCullough is a cardiologist, not a viral epidemiologist. He supports hydroxychloroquine treatment despite It being debunked. He was fired from his hospital and is being sued by it.

R5 is a complete fucking nutbag. You Trumpies are truly out of your goddamn minds.

What the fuck are we supposed to do with these crazies?

If Dr. Peter McCullough comes to my house I will wave a stick at him!

Btw, the R5 link is to address at an insane right wing medical association conference whose journal has claimed, among things, that homosexuality reduces lifespan by 20 years. So, yeah, R5, can die in a grease fire.

I remember going into Tower Tokyo and seeing his name card spelled "Eric Crapton". I always referred to him like that after and little did I know how fitting it was.

r5, my nephew's unvaxxed best friend since grade school just died from covid. He was 37 and left a wife with huge medical bills and 3 young kids. Too bad he didn't opt for the free vaccine.

He's been a has been for decades. Paying attention to him is part of the problem.

He should stick to the Delta blues and leave Delta to the scientists.

We should turn our backs on his evil words!

He's a piece of shit. He beat his wives and girlfriend and he wrote that Tears in Heaven song for a child he wanted nothing to do with

I just don’t understand why some of these older artists feel the need to do anything but play music. No one cares anymore about their extreme opinions, endless band feuds, etc . I feel like many from the boomer generation of artists will keep performing until they wheel them out on gurneys. I feel like many of them are like Madonna and think they can remain in their 30s through sheer will power.

What a shame. He's such a gifted artist, but I guess it ends there.

After his kid fell out the window and died I had a soft spot for him.

My eyes are opened now. He should go to the scummiest place in hell ASAP

People try to put us down, Just because we get around, I hope I die before I get old.

This is my generation.. I hope I die before I get old.

The only song I like of his is Layla and that is mainly for the instrumental at the end. Fuck this old prick.

r5's Dr. Peter McCullough is a quack who is associated with the far-right John Birch Society, has appeared on Tucker's show and Laura Ingraham's podcast, and falsely claimed to be associated with Baylor, who is now suing him. They got a restraining order on him a few weeks ago.

Shame he didn’t fall out the window.

He received a CBE from the Queen for his racism and annoying music.

He also stole George Harrison's wife, Pattie Boyd, and beat her during their marriage.

None of this has ever been a secret, it shouldn’t have taken Covid to make people care finally acknowledge what a piece shit he is.

R34 He covered an old delta blues song. His version had nothing to do with delta blues.

[R6] Who is this fruit brain on DL who always wants people who have a differing opinion to die in a grease fire? His Mama must have splashed him with some hot Crisco oil when she was frying up the family rabbit. She gave him a real soul kink!
