Why Actor Tim Robbins's Apology Matters
Yesterday I was wondering when the vaccine zealots who demonized us would apologize. Kudos to Tim Robbins for having the gravitas to take the lead on this important issue.
My take on this, below the link to TK News
“I heard people saying, ‘If you didn’t take the vaccine and you get sick, you don’t have a right to a hospital bed,” he says. “It made me think about returning to a society where we care about each other. Your neighbor would be sick, and you’d bring over some soup. It didn’t matter what their politics were, you’re their fucking neighbor,” he says, shaking his head.
“I think we lost a lot of ourselves during this time.”
“Years later, the Oscar-winning actor known for left-liberal advocacy finds his thinking has shifted in significant ways. In part this is because the entertainment business remains mired in high-vigilance mode when it comes to pandemic restrictions, with an omerta still hovering over vaccine-related questions. Robbins himself was with the program early, which he now seems to regret. “I was guilty of everything that I came to understand was not healthy,” he says now. “I demonized people.”
However, he soon began to wonder why certain rules were being kept long after they lost real-world utility. For instance, deals struck in 2021 between studios and powerful unions like SAG-AFTRA, the Directors’ Guild of America, and Actors’ Equity barred the unvaccinated not just from working, but auditioning. This maybe, possibly made sense when the vaccines were thought to prevent transmission. But now?
“I get it. I understand the fear. I was there,” Robbins says. “But we’ve restricted people from working for too long.”
For anyone paying attention, this apology is genuine, and done well.
It is specific.
It does not offer excuses.
It accurately reflects at the failure of the vaccine to prevent transmission.
Wait until he learns about negative efficacy and the bogus nature of the RT-PCR testing.
Wait till he learns about adverse events...￼
This truly moved me, and I expressed my gratitude to Tim for his bravery and humility. I am considering launching a new interview series featuring the newly awakened and invited Tim to kick it off as my first subject. Fingers crossed, he’ll take me up on it as there are so few people in the world who have demonstrated the ability reassess one’s position, recalibrate, and make amends.
