Don't encourage this Charles
Just imagine the gratification it would give Clapton to see this thread descend into racist/antisemitic chaos, ew

As a boomer myself, I would like to disassociate myself from our British ex-patriate's comments.

Your appeal is officially denied
If you're looking for male gratification you've come to the wrong girl

I'm sorry we're not allowed to speak to people who freely give self-incriminating information because you personally don't want to know how distasteful they might actually be?

The thing I have against Clapton is his ridiculous and dangerous and irresponsible anti-vaxx stance. Love him or hate him, the man has massive influence and what he says gets listened to. I'm no particular fan - I have two of his albums - but I could take or leave him till he started ranting about how people who refuse to vaccinate are being "discriminated" against. I wouldn't be that surprised to find he believes Trump won too. (1,2?) On this, in principle at least, I'm with Batty: **** Clapton, and Eric, despite what they said about you and what you may personally believe, you are not God and do not have the right to endanger the lives of other people with your uninformed rhetoric.

Oh, and **** you, by the way.

**** Ted Nugent too cause he's on this same **** and appearing on Alex ****ing Jones to boot.

That's widely off the mark, I'm not the kind of person who wants to deny other people's bad sides. That doesn't mean people can vent that side of themselves without me doing anything about it, if it's harmful

I really thought the basics of this Forum was about ''Music Banter''

but no it does not seem so. It is how much ****e people can stir up on others....So what you want is nobody can be different in their ways of living/thinking..just one way because you might cause harm to others. You still have freedom rights to protect yourself from harm that medications do cause.....So people suddenly have to have one side only...Clones... .
Covid 19 is the worst right now, no denying that.
.. But it is acceptable to poison us all on a daily basis with force fed antibiotics put into every animal that we eat, spray the crops with deadly substances, other drugs plastics even in ice cream.. in everything around us that is the cause of more deaths on a daily basis.
Give me strength.

I don't think there's any need for anyone to set up their soapbox here. However when you ask the question about Clapton, given his irresponsible comments, I think he deserves to be called out about that in a thread about him.

I have no idea what the other stuff is that you're talking about Dianne: I don't think anyone mentioned GM food or anything like that, so it seems like you're trying to widen the discussion a little disingenuously for the sake of making a point about something about which nobody has spoken. I doubt you can equate "force fed antibiotics" in animals with a request - not an order, a request - that everyone protect themselves and others by getting a potentially life-saving vaccine.

Anyway I've had my say about Clapton in a non-musical way, so I'll bow out now. I suggest any major politics regarding him or anything else outside of his attitude to Covid be taken to the appropriate thread, maybe in my Racism thread or somewhere in the current affairs anyway.

He's still a cunt though, is my opinion.
