Excluding a . directory in a subdirectory

I am having problems getting a . directory in a subdirectory to be excluded when rsyncing. I am using rsync 3.1.2 on CentOS 7 and the command line is:

#    all files from ~/bin/ and I use want to exclude the directory ~/bin/docker/.git
rsync -vHrltDium -c --chmod=Du+rwx,go-rwx,Fu+rw,go-rw --no-perms --stats --include='*' --include='*/' --exclude=".git/" -e "ssh -y -p 22" /home/user/bin/ user at

What am I doing wrong? I thought the exclusion pattern above would exclude any .git subdirectory regardless of level found?

Thank you.
