You are misleading by saying that US child protection groups want to prevent Pete Townshend from performing. There is only one group that is targeting Mr. Townshend. This group, may even be based out of Canada, and not the US. Let us all check our facts, please!

You got the first dependent clause right: he was a victim. The rest is victimizing him all over again.

STOP. Leave Mr. Townshend alone. He is a blessed man who has given tirelessly of himself to the benefit of others.
