Oscar-winning actor and one of Hollywood’s most progressive voices, Tim Robbins, revealed that he now regrets complying with the government’s Orwellian COVID mandates, which he says transformed him into a “tribal, angry, vindictive” person towards the unvaccinated.
On Sunday’s episode of British comedian Russell Brand’s podcast, Robbins explained his journey from being a sheep with the government’s unconstitutional mandate early in the pandemic to someone who questions the government’s agenda built around COVID-19, vaccination, lockdowns, and masking, Blaze reported.
“I bought into it. … I was masking everywhere. I was keeping my social distance. I was adhering to the requests made of me, and I felt angry at people that didn’t do that,” Robbins told Brand.
The trip to the UK finally made Robbins realize that he was wrong to believe the narrative of the pandemic without questioning it.
“It wasn’t until I came to the UK in January of 2021 that I started to have questions… I noticed a lot of people were not adhering again to these requests made by their government. And I thought, well, they’re going to have a hard day coming up, you know, that there will be some serious death here. And I kept my mask on and I kept adhering to the policies. But it wasn’t until much later that I started to have questions.”
“When I saw that there wasn’t a huge death rate in [Britain] after I had witnessed personally what was happening, I started to wonder more and more about what we were being told and whether it was true or not. And so it took a while for me to speak about it,” he continued.
“I began to educate myself, and I began to open my mind to what was going on. It was a very different political environment in the United States, very divisive, [and] very much based on politics… It was kind of Orwellian,” he added.
“There were a few instances that were really disturbing to me,” he continued. “One was when — I believe it was the CDC or the FDA — changed the definition of a vaccine on their website. Another was that when they denied that natural immunity was something, so there was an awful lot of people that got COVID early on … and in the past natural immunity is one of the building blocks to moving forward … and eventually we have herd immunity, so the fact that there were these change of definitions, it was something that — my alarm bells went off and so I wondered, ‘What is going on?’”
