Oscar-winning actor and one of Hollywood’s most progressive voices Tim Robbins, revealed he now regrets complying with the government’s Orwellian COVID mandates, which he says transformed him into a “tribal, angry, vindictive” 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… And I was masking everywhere. I was keeping my social distance so as adhering to the requests made of me. And I felt angry at people that didn’t do that. I felt angry,” Robbins said.
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 it 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.
