Eric Clapton recently made headlines for his stances on the COVID-19 vaccine, lockdown measures and other topics related to the ongoing pandemic. His latest stance now takes a controversial anti-vax concept that claims people have been brainwashed/hypnotized to get the COVID vaccine.
As reported by rolling stone and Billboard, Clapton took part in a new interview with YouTube channel The Real Music Observer which was posted on January 21. In the interview, Clapton mentions “mass training hypnosis”, which rolling stone dubbed “a shiny new term in anti-vax circles”. The basis of the concept/theory alleges that people are brainwashed or hypnotized into believing information about the COVID vaccine.
Billboard noted, “The theory, which has been largely debunked, gained momentum in December 2021 on the popular ‘Joe Rogan Experience’ podcast, which has often been the source of incorrect and medically questionable information about the pandemic.”
Clapton said during his Mass Training Hypnosis interview, “I didn’t get the memo, whatever it was, it didn’t get to me. Then I started to realize that there really was a memo… It’s great, you know, the theory of mass hypnosis training. And I could see it then. Once I started looking for it, I saw it everywhere.
Clapton added: “Then I remembered seeing little things on YouTube that looked like subliminal advertising; it had been going on for a long time – this story of “you will own nothing and you will be happy”. And I thought, ‘What does that mean?’
rolling stone succinctly wrote in response to Clapton’s musings, “What Clapton saw everywhere was what most would describe as a massive campaign of public health messaging encouraging people to get a safe and effective vaccine.”
