The legendary guitarist said The Thing That Must Not Be Said in a recent interview and some people are getting very upset.

Eric Clapton, 76, has faced some intense backlash and has been labeled an “anti-vaxxer” after he was vocal about his horrible experience with side effects from the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine. After taking the jab, he says he suffered from peripheral neuropathy and feared might not be able to play guitar ever again. He said that he “should never have gone near the needle”

In a message to his music producer, he said: ‘I took the first jab of AZ [AstraZeneca] and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days.’

The 76-year-old said he ‘recovered eventually’ but suffered further ‘disastrous reactions’ six weeks later after the second shot.

He added: ‘My hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again…

‘I should never have gone near the needle. But the propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone.’

ClashDaily covered Clapton’s horrible vaccine experience and his surprising transformation from “living legend” into “anti-lockdown” artist here:

But then, rebelling against the government was something that was natural for rock’n’rollers back in the day, and Clapton’s generation was iconic on that front. It’s really too bad so many people have lost that spirit when governments around the world are embracing authoritarianism.

In an interview with “The Real Music Observer” channel on YouTube, Clapton has reignited the ire of the jab-happy when he said that he believes that the public was hypnotized into vaccination, partly through hidden subliminal messages in advertising.

Clapton said this was “mass formation hypnosis” which is basically what Dr. Robert Malone said on Joe Rogan’s podcast earlier this month.

Dr. Malone used the phrase “mass formation psychosis” which then began to trend on Twitter and was subsequently “fact-checked” by the Associated Press, whose source was an “expert” who advocates for the use of behavioral “nudge units” to shape societal behavior.

Clapton explains how he learned about the concept.

[Clapton] said: ‘Whatever the memo was, it hadn’t reached me. Then I started to realise there was really a memo, and a guy, Mattias Desmet [professor of clinical psychology at Ghent University in Belgium], talked about it.

‘And it’s great. The theory of mass formation hypnosis. And I could see it then. Once I kind of started to look for it, I saw it everywhere.

‘Then I remembered seeing little things on YouTube which were like subliminal advertising. It had been going on for a long time: that thing about “you will own nothing and you will be happy.”

‘And I thought, “What’s that mean?” And bit by bit, I put a rough kind of jigsaw puzzle together. And that made me even more resolute.’

The Daily Mail article makes sure to note, “Mass formation psychosis – an attempt to hypnotize groups of people to follow messages against their will – has been widely discredited by scientists.”

Scientists can discredit the idea of “mass hypnosis” but there are behavioral “nudge units” employed by governments all over the world and they’ve been used during the pandemic to shape behavior.

Most of the time, the “experts” are open about what they’re trying to do:

Nature: Test behavioural nudges to boost COVID immunization

The Finacial Times: Covid has demonstrated the power of the ‘nudge’

Toronto Star: ‘The nudge unit’: Ottawa’s behavioural-science team investigates how Canadians feel about vaccines, public health and who to trust

On occasion, however, they’re not. Like the Canadian military unilaterally deciding to conduct a Psy-Op on the public without any authorization and refusing to shut down the operation when ordered to.

CBC News: Military campaign to influence public opinion continued after defence chief shut it down

Wow! It looks like you just can’t trust a government that allows public health to spy on 89 percent of citizens without their knowledge or consent.

Basically, the Corporate Media is trying to convince you that propaganda isn’t real because the “experts” say that you can’t hypnotize large swaths of the population.

Are you sure about that? Have you gone on an airplane in the past two years? Or a restaurant after the “mask mandates”? Have you seen people driving around alone wearing a mask? How about going for a walk outside all masked-up after their triple-jabs?

And then, there are these freaks:

Something has clearly broken people and it probably has something to do with the 24/7 fear porn and the constant pushing of government mandates that the Corporate Media insists that only the “misinformed” or overt “conspiracy theorists” would dare to question.

The interviewer, David Spuria, said that he found the backlash that Clapton has faced from the Corporate Media was rather bizarre and compared it to someone who had a bad experience at a restaurant and was warning others about it.

Spuria noted that the critics often just say that Clapton needs to “get on board” and “do what he needs to do” but, as Spuria points out — Clapton did that. That’s the reason that he has spoken out.

Clapton says that he chose to speak out because “nobody else was doing it” and he contacted Van Morrison who shared his views.

They created the song, “This Has Gotta Stop.”

He said that he was disheartened that people suddenly didn’t want to hear what he had to say, but he’s still determined to get his message out there.

Clapton says he stopped watching the news which was just “one-way traffic” about following government orders.

He admits that his openness about his adverse reaction has cost him friendships and associations, but he’s grateful for those who stick by him.

After he voiced his views, the Wonderful Tonight hitmaker – who is father to daughters Ruth, 37, Julie, 20, Ella, 19, and 16-year-old Sophie – said: ‘My family and friends think I am a crackpot anyway.

‘Over the last year, there’s been a lot of disappearing – a lot of dust around, with people moving away quite quickly.

‘It has, for me, refined the kind of friendship I have. And it’s dwindled down to the people that I obviously really need and love.

‘Inside my family, that became quite pivotal… I’ve got teenage girls, and an older girl who’s in he thirties – and they’ve all had to kind of give me leeway because I haven’t been able to convince any of them.’

Clapton – who is married to Melia McEnery – added: ‘I would try to reach out to fellow musicians and sometimes I just don’t hear from them.

‘My phone doesn’t ring very often. I don’t get that many texts and emails anymore.’

Watch the interview here:

The suppression of any sort of dissent or questioning of the science, the recommendations by public health experts, or the action taken by governments at every level has been overtly suppressed and labeled “conspiracy theory.”

Meanwhile, there are behavioral scientists who approve of “nudging” the public’s behavior toward compliance with government edicts while discrediting those who run counter to the accepted narrative.

But remember, according to the “experts” — many of whom have been on record lying throughout the pandemic — “mass formation psychosis” isn’t real and it isn’t happening now.

Who are you going to believe — the experts or your lying eyes?

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
