The “cancel culture” is coming for guitar hero Eric Clapton, for daring to record a song written by Van Morrison that protests the endless lockdowns that are killing live music and destroying musicians’ livelihoods. He couldn’t be allowed to go around expressing a non-approved opinion, so the Twitter keyboard warriors dug up an old racist comment he made in the 1970s and are using it as a pretext to try to “disappear” him.

The comment was indeed shocking, but he’s apologized for it repeatedly for years, explaining that when he said it, he was out of his head and suicidally addicted to booze and drugs. The left seemed to forgive him, until it suddenly became useful to take it back.

I’d also point out that the song the self-righteous social justice warriors are so outraged over is to raise money to help struggling musicians whose livelihood is being destroyed by their policies. Just by recording it, he’s already done more to help others than they ever will. And I seriously doubt that anyone who already knows Eric Clapton is going to stop listening to his music because some twits on Twitter said to.

    Clapton can blame Donald Trump, the soon-to-be EX-President, for the current state of the economy. Had he not lied to the American people regarding the deadly nature of the coronavirus (which he was warned about back in January) and developed a coordinated national plan for combatting it, we wouldn't be in this situation of having to protect people, not only from the virus but from themselves!

    Liberals don't care about the facts & the truth, only 'their' agenda. You could argue with them all day long that 2+2=4, but they don't care. If it fit their agenda that 2+2=5, they'd argue all day long. Screw them. I care about 'facts'.

    The right has been capitulating to the left for too many years now they are so accustomed to getting what they want no matter how illegal and stupid their demands are with just a tweet followed by violent protests. I say give just enough room for diplomacy to talk the left into some level of civility, otherwise, the right has to firmly put its foot down and settle the matter to a fair and just conclusion with all legal means necessary.

    Fuck Eric Clapton and fuck Donald Trump. The virus doesn't care what "side" you're on. There will be live music again, as long as all the damn hillbillies of the world grow up, mask up, and learn to social distance like adults.

    Eric the pathetic idiots that come up with this garbage I am sure have all said something stupid in their past but swept it under the rug and then act never did something stupid. The truth always prevails

    Whether you agree with Clapton's usual politics or not, you see how quickly SJW's turn and kill their own no matter how noble the cause. But non-"woke" people feel badly because it actually is a hit at American Rights and common decency. SJW's care about slogans and self-aggrandizing, not compassion nor Rights.

    So no one can ever be forgiven? I love Eric Clapton. I have listen to him for years and will continue. He made some mistakes, but has atoned for them. We need to save live music. I am a Catholic and we call it confession!

    Chik-fil-A, Hobby Lobby, Eric Clapton, I loose track. But what I do remember is, that every time this has been tried, the targets of the 'cancel' get more famous and, well richer. :)

    The left needs to give us a break. So tired of their attacking everybody that doesn't go along with their agenda. Doesn't matter what good you're doing for society they just don't care that's not their goal. were they used to encourage dissenting voices now they discourage anyone who speaks up against their mindset. Self entitled, virtue signaling, pious ignorant idiots. Do they really think they're helping? I think they know they're not. They just don't care as long as they get what they want.
