Legendary guitarist and singer Eric Clapton stated during a recent interview on The Real Music Observer channel on YouTube that criticism of his adamant anti-vaccination stance is due to “Mass Formation Hypnosis.”
Host David Spuria questioned Clapton on why he was so widely criticized for sharing his horrific experience after getting the AstraZeneca jab. The rock legend has previously shared his “disastrous” reactions to the vaccine in a letter and laid the blame on “propaganda” that promoted the vaccine’s safety. He claimed his hands and feet were “either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless” and he feared he “would never play [the guitar] again.”
Since then, Clapton has released an anti-lockdown song called “Stand and Deliver” with Van Morrison and has taken his stance against vaccinations and lockdowns public. He has released another song titled, “This Has Gotta Stop.”
“So I thought, why are they? What’s going on here?” he remarked. “There seemed to be some sort of – I didn’t get the memo, whatever the memo was, it hadn’t reached me. Then I realized there really was a memo – a guy, Mattias Desmet has talked about it. It’s great, you know, the theory of Mass Formation Hypnosis.”
“And I could see it, once I kind of started to look for it. I saw it everywhere,” he noted. “And then I remembered seeing little things on YouTube, which were like subliminal advertising, It’s been going on for a long time – that thing of ‘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.”

Clapton’s comments are being roundly attacked by leftists across the board, calling the theory illegitimate and unfounded.
The theory was originally put forth by Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.” It purportedly contends that millions of people trust the vaccine due to mass hypnosis. The video on YouTube has since been removed, the doctor’s Twitter account has been suspended. Malone is a scientist who reportedly researched mRNA technology but is now a vocal skeptic of the COVID vaccines that use it.
Credited to Belgian psychologist Mattias Desmet, the theory refers to a sort of mind control that has ostensibly taken over society, allowing corrupt leaders to easily manipulate populations into accepting vaccines, lockdowns, or wearing face masks.
Malone asserts that “Mass Formation Psychosis” has resulted in a “third of the population basically being hypnotized” into believing what figures of authority say about COVID. His credibility has been knocked by so-called experts after making his opinion public.
“When you have a society that has become decoupled from each other and has free-floating anxiety in a sense that things don’t make sense, we can’t understand it, and then their attention gets focused by a leader or a series of events on one small point, just like hypnosis, they literally become hypnotized and can be led anywhere,” Malone posited. He asserted that such people will not allow the “narrative” to be questioned.
Clapton has also donated over $1,300 via a GoFundMe account to the U.K. band Jam for Freedom which is “spearheading the pro-freedom revolution happening globally as a response to restrictions on our basic human rights to work, travel and live,” and performs songs with lyrics such as “You can stick your poison vaccine up your a**.”
In contrast to Clapton’s stance, via a now-deleted letter, singer Neil Young wrote that he didn’t appreciate Spotify’s affiliation with Rogan and his podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience,” which is spreading “false information” regarding COVID vaccines. The letter was dated January 24.
Addressing his management team at LookoutManagement and Warner Bros, Young went on to write, “Please immediately inform Spotify that I am actively canceling all my music availability on Spotify as soon as possible.”
Clapton is still adored by millions of fans and more than a few agree with him out there:

It is not mass formation hypnosis, it is though coercion, both psychological through fear and propaganda and actual consequential due to restrictions and importance of some trade offs such as work, entertainment and travel…

That’s quite an apt way of putting it, yes. Well said @EricClapton
