The Who Frontman Roger Daltrey on ‘Woke’ Generation: ‘Will Lead to Misery’

The Who Frontman Roger Daltrey on ‘Woke’ Generation: ‘Will Lead to Misery’

“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.”

Last week, we noted that punk legend Johnny Rotten has soured on the left. Now Roger Daltrey, lead singer for “The Who” is speaking out against woke culture.

It’s safe to say this is not his generation.

Spiked Online reports:

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.’

It’s encouraging to see people in the arts stand up and object to woke culture. Some of them seem to understand that this ideology presents a direct threat to creativity.

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.”…

“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.

I’m really enjoying the new British Invasion of rock stars from the UK speaking out against the left.

Let’s celebrate Daltrey with one of The Who’s greatest hits:

    “Meet the new Boss, Same as the old Boss”

    >> Woke is just repackaged racism and intolerance.

    This generation thinks their degrees make them so smart – and yet they are dumber than any generation in the last 100 years.

Social justice. Social progress. Political congruence. [Catastrophic] [Anthropogenic] Immigration reform. Green blight. Keep women appointed, available, and taxable. Witch hunts and warlock trials. Pro-Choice religion. Stop the coups without cause, the transnational man-made conflicts. The wars without borders. Close Planned Parent/hood. Woke and [morally] broke.

Diversity of individuals, minority of one. Baby Lives Matter (BLM).

Some one with the graphic chops ought take the Who album cover for Who’s Next and write “Woke Culture” on the obelisk.

even a deaf, dumb, blind kid gets it

It started as an itch, but the feeling has grown. The counterculture is rising. Only a matter of time before people become awake and sweep the woke religion into the dustbin of history.

““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.”…”

“Should”? I think we must, because fascists will give us no other choice.

It’s not really cancel culture, it’s communism trying to take over.

    USA UNDER ATTACK

    People have to wake up and realize – the USA is under attack. These are organized and planned acts of subversion meant to undermine and destabilize our society. Indoctrinating kids with rancid and divisive ideology is a propaganda weapon of war.

Roger has already been through one culture war in the 60’s with Mods and Rockers

When Roger Daltry was rebelling, the prize was profliferation of your art.

The idiots ‘rebelling’ (i.e., joining fascism), the prize is genocide.

The left doesn’t care as long as they are doling out the misery on others. That’s power to them and as natural as breathing.
