Roger Daltrey, the lead singer for the classic rock band The Who, is not a fan of the new ‘woke’ left.
During a recent interview, Daltrey made it clear that people of the new left are going down a road to nowhere.
It’s refreshing to see people in the arts speaking up about this.

Roger Daltrey takes on the woke generation
Wokeness is a completely regressive phenomenon. It is censorious and divisive. But more than anything, wokeness is just boring. From comedy to literature to music, it saps the energy and the fun out of life as it desparately attempts to destroy anything that might offend or provoke.
Rock legend Roger Daltrey clearly recognises this. Last week he launched a much-needed attack on the ‘woke generation’ in an interview on The Zane Lowe Show.
‘It’s becoming so absurd now with… the woke generation. It’s terrifying, the miserable world they’re going to create for themselves. I mean, anyone who’s lived a life and you see what they’re doing, you just know that it’s a route to nowhere. Especially when you’ve lived through the periods of a life that we’ve had the privilege to. We’ve had the golden era. There’s no doubt about that.’

Roger Daltrey: ‘Woke generation’ is creating a ‘miserable world’
The Who star Roger Daltrey has taken aim at the “woke generation”, saying a “miserable world” is going to be created.
Talking about today’s society in an interview on Zane Lowe’s Apple Music 1, Daltrey said he feels privileged to have lived in the “golden era”.
The 77-year-old shared his thoughts as he was discussing all the “spin” in the world.
“It’s just getting harder to disseminate the truth,” he said. “It’s almost like, now we should turn the whole thing off. Go back to newsprint, go back to word of mouth and start to read books again.”…
“It’s terrifying, the miserable world they’re going to create for themselves.
“I mean, anyone who’s lived a life and you see what they are doing, you just know that it’s a route to nowhere.
The left is alienating a lot of people who used to be allies.
Their world view is too totalitarian.
As Daltrey sings in The Who’s hit song, we won’t get fooled again.
