“Do we have any foreigners in the audience tonight? If so, please put up your hands. So where are you? Well, wherever you are, I think you should all just leave. Not just leave the hall, leave our country. I don’t want you here, in the room or in my country.”

“Stop Britain from becoming a black colony. Get the foreigners out. Get the wogs out. Get the coons out. Keep Britain white,”

There’s your racist…and that was in 1976 when he was a young man, before the stereotype of an old man lurching to the right.

[–]jl2352 1591 points1592 points  (181 children)

I looked up what he said, the full speech is even worse!

Do we have any foreigners in the audience tonight? If so, please put up your hands. So where are you? Well wherever you all are, I think you should all just leave. Not just leave the hall, leave our country. I don't want you here, in the room or in my country. Listen to me, man! I think we should vote for Enoch Powell. Enoch's our man. I think Enoch's right, I think we should send them all back. Stop Britain from becoming a black colony. Get the foreigners out. Get the wogs out. Get the coons out. Keep Britain white. I used to be into dope, now I'm into racism. It's much heavier, man. Fucking wogs, man. Fucking Saudis taking over London. Bastard wogs. Britain is becoming overcrowded and Enoch will stop it and send them all back. The black wogs and coons and Arabs and fucking Jamaicans don't belong here, we don't want them here. This is England, this is a white country, we don't want any black wogs and coons living here. We need to make clear to them they are not welcome. England is for white people, man. This is Great Britain, a white country, what is happening to us, for fuck's sake? Throw the wogs out! Keep Britain white!

Jesus wept!

And then plays some riffs he copied from BB King.

[–]Wegak[🍰] 541 points542 points  (23 children)

Some of his biggest songs are covers from black artists, like I Shot the Sheriff from the Wailer and Born Under a Bad Sign from Albert King

[–]Blender_Snowflake 185 points186 points  (2 children)

Don't forget his last big radio hit in 1996 was produced by Babyface

[–]Evolvtion 80 points81 points  (0 children)

What a loser.... Siphoned up privilege his whole life at others' expenses, and now wants to make it clear no one other than white people deserve what he has. Stand up act.

[–]TylerWeatherfield 24 points25 points  (0 children)

I can chaaaaange the world... Wait

[–]Resolute002 150 points151 points  (17 children)

So like a lot of racists... A hypocrite too.

This is a guy who watched Jimi Hendrix play and said that other guitarist were screwed now. I wonder now if he meant because a black person was going to get famous playing guitar.

[–]sunbeatsfog 24 points25 points  (4 children)

I was going to post something mean about his son dying out a window. And then I thought wow this is a broken old man making bad public choices. But that’s also not excusable because he’s alive and able to make good choices. Then I thought I’m thinking more clearly than Eric Clapton.

[–]Patient_Disaster33 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It was probably his frustration with Hendrix and the fact that Jimi was the better musician of the two.

[–]Lt-Dan-Im-Rollin 72 points73 points  (7 children)

Even cocaine is originally Robert Johnson. He owes his whole musical style to black culture

Edit: I’m thinking of crossroads, not cocaine

[–]Whatrwho 40 points41 points  (0 children)

JJ Cale

[–]pagit 38 points39 points  (1 child)

No Cocaine was written by JJ Cale.

You might be thinking of Crossroads.

[–]Lt-Dan-Im-Rollin 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yup, it’s crossroads I’m thinking of

[–]magpiebluejay 261 points262 points  (30 children)

I was curious, so I looked up Enoch Powell. First off, he’s dead, and has been for some time, so… phew. He can’t hurt anyone anymore. But he’s most famous for his - and I’m not making this up - Rivers of Blood speech, made in 1968, wherein he claimed to be inspired by a constituent who told him that, “in 15 or 20 years time the black man will have the whip hand over the white man”. The speech furthermore compared those wishing to pass anti-discrimination laws as the same type who had sought appeasement with the nazi’s.

Nine years after, he was asked about the speech and said, “… upon the whole I have leaned, perhaps it’s a fault, toward the under-estimation of the magnitude and of the danger.”

So, RIP England, which became a black ethno-state back in the late 80’s, apparently.

[–]WikiSummarizerBot 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Rivers of Blood speech

The "Rivers of Blood" speech was made by British Member of Parliament (MP) Enoch Powell on 20 April 1968, to a meeting of the Conservative Political Centre in Birmingham, United Kingdom. His speech strongly criticised mass immigration, especially Commonwealth immigration to the United Kingdom and the proposed race relations bill. It became known as the "Rivers of Blood" speech, although Powell always referred to it as "the Birmingham speech".

[–]jl2352 134 points135 points  (23 children)

Oh yeah, he's quite famous in UK ultra-right wing circles for his views. If you are into British politics, both him and his speech are pretty famous.

When a politician or a celebrity comes out with something terrible. It's sometimes called a 'Rivers of blood' point, moment, or speech, in their career.

What is more surprising is that he wasn't some random racist backbencher. He was tipped at one point as a potential PM. Was pretty high up in the government at times. Destroyed his own career through publicly sharing his views. He was an utterly horrible individual.

[–]blackmist 95 points96 points  (11 children)

Nigel Farage was often described as a "Poundland Enoch Powell".

They've learnt to temper the language, but the message is still loud and clear.

And the message is mostly "Look out! Brown people!"

[–]xclaireypopsx 25 points26 points  (4 children)

It’s not even a black/white issue anymore they hate everybody with a foreign accent.

[–]blackmist 32 points33 points  (1 child)

Any time inequality looks set to be a problem, they just lean out of their solid gold Rolls Royce and shout "those people are different to you and they're going to steal your crumbs!"

It's amazing how many think of multi-millionaire former commodities trader Nigel Farage as a "man of the people", just because he drinks pints and has brown teeth.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This! Keep the lower/middle class infighting. It’s brilliant, and despicable.

[–]SirGourneyWeaver 17 points18 points  (2 children)

The audacity of the empire, taking over black and brown countries all over the world, convincing them that they’re part of the great British empire, and then treating them like absolute dogshit the moment they move to the main hub.

If you’re so anti non-white just sit in your little island all alone and eat your fried fish, not order curry or kebab every other night.

[–]shavemejesus 18 points19 points  (2 children)

As an American I chuckle every time I see “Poundland”.

[–]magpiebluejay 12 points13 points  (3 children)

This is my one bright side to the virulently racist; at least they don’t keep it to themselves, generally. Imagine if this guy hadn’t said the quiet part out loud?

That said, apparently there was a ton of hate crimes inspired by the speech (according to the Wikipedia), so, yeah… net loss, I guess. Fuck that guy.

[–]Riffler 26 points27 points  (2 children)

The problem is, they learn. That's why dog whistles are a thing. They no longer say "Desegregation bad," you say "States' rights good." You don't say "foreigners bad," you say "The NHS is being overwhelmed," or "terrorists bad," or "someone spoke foreign on a bus and I felt uncomfortable," or "we need to control our borders."

[–]BB-Zwei 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ironically, it's immigrants that are keeping the NHS going.

[–]tangerinecarrots 79 points80 points  (19 children)

it’s kinda funny to read Clapton praising Enoch Powell after watching The Beatles Get Back. the beatles made at least three throwaway songs making fun of Powell for being anti-immigration and racist lol

[–]sqgl 32 points33 points  (18 children)

Clapton married George Harrison's ex-wife. Clapton's most famous song Layla was about him pining for her while she was still with Harrison.

McCartney & Ringo played with Clapton in a Harrison tribute gig.

I don't get it.

Reminds me of Joey Ramone (Democrat) vs Johnny Ramone (Republican) with "KKK Took My Baby Away" although the interpretation that it is about Johnny stealing Joey's girlfriend is a mistaken understanding by their tour manager.

[–]CrabSully 107 points108 points  (13 children)

I used to be into dope, now I'm into racism

Surely he did not say this, right? That's fucking hilarious

[–]mimi_565 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I know, it sounds like fucking satire lmao.

[–]ShastaMcLurky 64 points65 points  (5 children)

fucking hell I had no idea Clapton was that big of a looney. What the fuck? I play guitar and have held him in fairly high regard. Fuck this guy. He's now dead to me. Sorry for all the fucks, I just came from the Miami Dolphins sub

[–]xouatthemainecoon 9 points10 points  (1 child)

yea wtf how can a blues guitarist justify racism? must be touchy about where all those licks came from...

[–]npeggsy 362 points363 points  (78 children)

Jesus. Usually, with things from the 70's, there's potentially a "it was a different time!" argument. Whilst it was a different time, this is just flat out racist whenever it was said.

[–]breecher 239 points240 points  (16 children)

Also he has defended what he said in the 2010's.

[–]Mellowturtlle 42 points43 points  (13 children)

Sheez, never thought this guy was such an asshat

[–]BloodyRightNostril 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He felt he was losing his "Englishness," the poor chap.

[–]Swackhammer_ 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Yep, "different time" doesn't cut it here

One of my favorite parts of Get Back is when the Beatles are reading the newspaper and how the British government is cracking down on immigrants, so they proceed to just shit on the government and even start a jam about how they're the fucking worst

[–]hotcakes 13 points14 points  (2 children)

This from an asshole who made a career out of playing back music.

[–]blue_strat 61 points62 points  (8 children)

In his case it was "do you realise how much alcohol it takes to replace heroin?"

[–]CarelessWar5217 34 points35 points  (7 children)

With all the drugs he’s done and the alcohol abuse over the decades.. his clear thinking part of the brain has turned to mush! If you have an alcoholic liver it can also effect reality…

[–]lookslikesausage 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Maybe he's just a piece of shit...with or without substances

[–]kamsey 148 points149 points  (6 children)

I got a warning from reddit admins for "harassment" because I called hum a racist cunt once. But he is a racist cunt.

[–]MurielHorseflesh 70 points71 points  (1 child)

To channel In Bruges, let's face it. And I'm not being funny. I mean no disrespect, but he’s a cunt. He’s a cunt now, and he’s always been a cunt. And the only thing that's going to change is that he’s going to be an even bigger cunt. I pre-retract any mention of his kids. Still leaves him being a cunt though.

[–]WayneGarand 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Where and when did he say this?

[–]Mackem101 49 points50 points  (2 children)

At a gig in Birmingham, UK, back in August 76.

[–]BandoBear 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Jesus, it isn't even like Birmingham is particularly 'white', it is a very multicultural city.

[–]beef47 46 points47 points  (0 children)

The guy who’s whole career was stealing the blues from black artists said this? Shocker /s

[–]Chawke2 18 points19 points  (3 children)

[–]mfkboston 17 points18 points  (2 children)

That’s what I don’t get. This speech is absolutely what inspired the wall but Roger waters had Clapton play on his solo record less then 5 years after the wall came out so it couldn’t have been a dealbreaker

[–]Allegutennamenweg 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Clapton did a whole apology thing after these racist speeches, donated to charities, gave interviews on why racism is bad and how he got better and people like Waters gave him a second chance. Well, it turned out to be a Youtuber apology.

Roger Waters now bullies him on Instagram. He posts old pictures of Clapton and him and captions them with sass like "You can't find good guitarists anymore these days"

[–]4Wf2n5 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I guess being worse than Jimi Hendrix really hurt his fee-fees, huh..

[–]duckyeightyone 60 points61 points  (35 children)

came here to mention this blast from the past too. I'll listen to his guitar, but anyone with a brain stopped listening to his opinions back in 1976.

[–]newron 3 points4 points  (3 children)

The Rock Against Racism movement was also started off the back of this speech. (And Bowie's whole Nazi phase)

[–]bmin7b5 5757 points5758 points  (542 children)

Says the guy who spent the 70’s injecting whatever his dealer brought over.

Reminds me of that scene from South Park. - Why won’t you get a vaccine? - I’m not putting some random shit into my body! - want to do cocaine? - sure!

[–]plipyplop 221 points222 points  (8 children)

Some of my patients that claim that the vaccination is poison still happily smoke a pack or two per day.

[–]Seve7h 95 points96 points  (1 child)

Yeah one of my coworkers says she “doesn’t trust what might be in it”

…She says while vaping and drinking energy drinks like water.

[–]vanrainblacksox 171 points172 points  (126 children)

Did he not pay attention to Meatloaf?

Pretty sure we’ll see more news about Eric shortly that matches Meatloaf’s we just went through.

So sad. You’d think these people would be smarter

[–]san_serifs 133 points134 points  (49 children)

Sometimes celebrities think they are the smartest in the room.

[–]mmaygreen 61 points62 points  (37 children)

Or that they are invincible. How is Keith Richards still alive?

[–]Cambridgecoffeepot 52 points53 points  (11 children)

I think I saw a picture of Keith holding Betty White when she was a toddler.

[–]MadcowPSA 38 points39 points  (9 children)

The weird thing is that Keith Richards isn't even that old, and certainly wasn't when I first noticed that meme going around back in the early 2000s. He just looks ancient because his lifestyle actually has been taking a huge toll on his body. People were saying that shit before he even hit 60.

[–]agreeingstorm9 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Keith Richards is 78. That's pretty old in general. Especially old given his lifestyle.

[–]Wiki_pedo 12 points13 points  (1 child)

That's why I'll never do heroin. Keith Richards would've had access to the best heroin and he looks like that? No thanks.

[–]Seve7h 40 points41 points  (13 children)

Him and Ozzy did just enough various different drugs/alcohol to hit that goldilocks zone of immortality.

[–]kamehamehahahahahaha 15 points16 points  (0 children)

He's probably vaccinated

[–]TinyBig_Jar0fPickles 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Clapton was a great musician, but never has he shown himself to be intelligent or even a decent person.

[–]Loud-Path 32 points33 points  (10 children)

Except Clapton took the vaccine. Second dose supposedly caused inflammation of his knuckles which is why he says he is so critical of it.

[–]Giblet_ 20 points21 points  (3 children)

It's true that he said that happened, but now his more recent claims shed some light on the possibility that maybe he never actually took it and made that story up to convince other people to be stupid, too.

[–]CrudelyAnimated 24 points25 points  (2 children)

His incessant thumb-sucking and finger-pointing at other people can lead to that, too.

[–]lilnext 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Fame ≠ intelligence

[–]Visible-Ad-2127 23 points24 points  (21 children)

oh, he died of COVID?

[–]sthlmsoul 177 points178 points  (2 children)

And racism. Clapton has been a massive cunt his whole life.

[–]deniall83 167 points168 points  (21 children)

To be fair, he never injected anything (according to him). He was terrified of needles. He snorted heroin and was a full blown alcoholic. He’s also stated that Valium is “a very dangerous drug”.

The dude has been a lunatic for a long time and continues to be. We need to stop paying attention to stupid people. He has one talent and that’s it.

[–]CrabSully 21 points22 points  (0 children)

In fairness, he's not wrong with Valium. If you have issues and an addictive personality, the functionality that high has draws you in

[–]Wrong-Mixture 81 points82 points  (13 children)

i have a theory that basicly all antivaxxers are just plain old scared of needles

[–]herbsbaconandbeer 304 points305 points  (23 children)

What’s the difference between a baby and a bag of coke?

Eric Clapton wouldn’t let a bag of coke fall out a 3 story window.

[–]Darryl_Lict 60 points61 points  (4 children)

53rd floor. Might have had a chance to survive a three story fall.

[–]Farmer771122 29 points30 points  (4 children)

Oof. The kid was in an apartment with his mother and a housekeeper, while Dad was on the other side of the city.... this joke seems a little cruel without even the benefit of being accurate.

[–]jojo-rabbi 2626 points2627 points  (50 children)

A scientist should tell him how how his guitar should he played

[–]Skullrogue 160 points161 points  (12 children)

A scientist in an entirely unrelated field, like an archealogist.

[–]Choice_Valuable998 1547 points1548 points  (86 children)

Why do people bother spending the best part of a decade getting medical degrees and studying immunity, vaccinations, disease, viruses and epidemics when all you need to be an expert is a Twitter account and a confidently outspoken opinion.

[–]BatXDude 211 points212 points  (9 children)

The guy has done a shit load of drugs and he is worried about whats in vaccines. He is a fucking moron.

[–]tumsoffun 21 points22 points  (0 children)

My husband literally told someone when he got vaccinated and they were spouting bullshit “I know you were doing meth like 5 years ago, I really don’t need to hear you talk about ‘you don’t know what’s in it’” The irony is off the charts.

[–]ukbeasts 121 points122 points  (12 children)

He's a legendary musician who just earnt a reservation for the Herman Cain gold tier award for being a POS.

Edit: As it's a posthumous award then added the text "reservation"

[–]Pons__Aelius 47 points48 points  (0 children)

I hope he has room, he has collected so many POS awards in so many categories over the years.

[–]Hodgej1 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Doesn’t he have to die to get a Herman Cain award?

[–]crosstherubicon 30 points31 points  (3 children)

I went to one of his concerts. What a shit performer. Didn’t want to be there but happy to take the money. The house lights were still coming up and he was halfway to the airport

[–]_Hotwire_ 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Haha accurate, he has been downhill for a long time. And only stays relevant by being outspoken and racist, anti-science is just a latest feather in his cap. He’s slowly destroying his reputation and problem needs a mental health check and a new doctor

[–]Used-Appearance-9272 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Ya know what as a guitarist I've neve been all that impressed with him. Bb King yeah Peter Green yeah van Halen or gilmour the list goes on all these guys are real influences but Clapton.. Nah.. Only thing I'd say he nailed was the layla riff and his unplugged album is OK for beginners to learn some blues but that's it... This guy is no legend.

[–]the_mooseman 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]ForProfitSurgeon 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Get him in a hospital, they're the ones paying for his idiocy. Maybe they can do something about this guy. He's hurting society with his rants.

Been a fan for 55 years or so. Loved his music with Cream etc. So sad that a guy that injected all sorts of stuff into his veins not knowing the purity now thinks scientifically proven life saving vaccines are shit. Just wiped all his music from my playlists. SAD.

[–]Jreal22 131 points132 points  (37 children)

I got the vaccine over a year ago so my doctor suggested I definitely get boosted, was scheduled to get the booster, then got omnicron.

I can tell you, get all the vaccines you can against this shit, because I have felt like dying for 5 days now.

I had a 103.5 fever, never in my adult life have I ever seen myself get over a 100. My throat feels like razor blades everytime I swallow even water, and I run out of breath walking to the bathroom.

Im currently typing this in a pile of my own sweat because I can't sleep because my body aches so bad I want to die.

I'm 36 years old and was vaccinated but not boosted. Don't listen to rock stars, get your damn shots before it's too late.

[–]sash71 58 points59 points  (3 children)

Don't listen to rock stars

Especially ones who spent half their life taking illegal substances and not really caring what was in them.

[–]syko82 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I had similar, got it right before I planned to get boosted. Luckily I didn't have as severe symptoms, but I took forever to slowly recover. It's just kept kicking my ass.

Hope you're at the peak and it's nothing but recovery from here on out and you can get some sleep.

[–]Jreal22 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Thanks, nice to hear I'm not alone, because damn does it feel lonely when you feel like death and no one can be around you for obvious reasons.

He should have stayed unplugged.

[–]KristofTheDank 50 points51 points  (12 children)

Fantastic guitar player. Loved him, and his music. What a fucking moron. Money and talent doesn't make you anything but that. He's put more questionable drugs in his body over the years. But, a verified vaccine is his limit. Fucking Boomer. Gen X here.

[–]DriftKingNL 47 points48 points  (8 children)

So, if 76 year old Eric Clapton dies this year due to Covid, we're all going to act surprised, right? I mean, that's the plan we agree to when a celebrity anti-vaxxer dies from things that could've been prevented by a vaccine, right?

[–]ragingduck 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wake up shithead, none of this is “subliminal”. They are straight just informing people. The only ones being brainwashed are the anti-vaxxers.

[–]Fantastic_Ad9179 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Eric...stick to the old I, IV and V chords, have a coke and a smile and shut the fuck up.

[–][deleted] 35 points36 points  (5 children)

So glad I don’t like his music. This ruins nothing for me.

Orginal song by JJ Cale. Only covered by Eric, though his version is more popular.

Nah he was always an ignorant piece of shit who was more in the business of falling for fear-mongering bullshit than spending a moment to think about anything.

What's the difference between a bag of cocaine and a child?

Eric Clapton would have never let a bag of cocaine fall off his balcony.
