A legendary rock and blues guitarist criticized political leaders for imposing panic and authoritarian control in the name of defending society from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus on Aug. 27.
Eric Clapton has released a new “single” pro-freedom song, in which he criticizes regulatory overreach for crushing individual freedoms with romantic speeches about saving the world from the CCP virus.
In his new song entitled “This Has Gotta Stop,” Clapton stresses harsh government restrictions must end.
“This has gotta stop, enough is enough, I cannot take this BS any longer,” he can be heard singing in a music video shared on YouTube.
Since the promotional video was released on August 27, it has already attracted more than 1.2 million views.
The footage shows animated images of people being controlled like puppets, addicted to smartphones, and fighting for individual freedoms.
Since the beginning of the pandemic Clapton has publicly opposed worldwide lockdowns that created chaos and economic crises. He also raised concern about adverse reactions to CCP virus vaccines, after personally experiencing extreme side effects from AstraZeneca’s jab.
Rolling Stone magazine published an open letter from the singer, in which he details terrible symptoms after taking two doses.
“I took the first jab of AstraZeneca and straight away had severe reactions which lasted 10 days,” he said according to the publication. “I recovered eventually and was told it would be 12 weeks before the second one.”
Everything went downhill after the second dose. The reactions were so severe he feared he would never be able to play the guitar again.
“About six weeks later I was offered and took the second AstraZeneca shot but with a little more knowledge of the dangers,” he said. “Needless to say the reactions were disastrous, my hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks–I feared I would never play again … but the propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone.”
His latest song appears to reflect these symptoms.
“I knew that something was going on wrong, when you started laying down the law,” he can be heard singing. “I cannot move my hands, I break out in sweat, I wanna cry, cannot take it anymore.”
Clapton had such a gruelling experience, he now refuses to force fans to be immunized as a condition of attending his concerts.
He reached the decision after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson declared nightclubs and other crowded venues must require patrons to produce a valid vaccination pass before entry.
“Following the prime minister’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021, I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” he said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel the show.”
