Who frontman Roger Daltrey has no use for the woke crowd. In fact, he says they’re creating a “miserable world” for themselves.
“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.”
Roger Daltrey had no good words for communism, either.
“And we’ve been through socialist governments. We’ve seen the communist system fail in the Soviet Union. I’ve been in those communist countries while they were communist.”
“I’ve seen how ‘wonderful’ — really? — it was.”
That’s because at 77 years old — he looks about ten years younger, IMHO — Daltrey saw his native Britain emerge from World War II, allowing him to grow up in “the golden era.” He’s been around the block a time or two.

Meanwhile, younger woke artist Taylor Swift has thrown off her wholesome country girl persona to embrace political correctness. And Lady Gaga beclowned herself last October in a ridiculous pro-Biden ad mocking white men who drive pickup trucks.

As a staunch Englishman, Daltrey also has no use for the European Union, and strongly supported the Brexit movement.
“Britain was the centre of the world. You got that because Britain was doing its own thing. It was independent. Not sure we’ll ever get that again when we’re ruled by bureaucrats in the European Union.”
He also compared being in the EU to being governed by the mafia.
“Why would any rock star need to push themselves on women? Usually, it’s the other way around.”
Finally, Daltrey once said that “a dead dog” would’ve beaten Hillary Clinton in 2016. He also said that Trump “really didn’t win” the election, but that the Democrats “threw it away.”
In 1965, the Who released a song called “My Generation,” in which Roger Daltrey sang the line Why don’t you all fade away? No doubt the line was referring to the older generation at that time. Now older, wiser, and more seasoned, Daltrey himself will not fade away, fearing neither the younger woke mob or their cancellation. You go Roger. We won’t get fooled again.
