It hasn’t escaped the average conservative’s notice that the left, who have taken up “anti-bullying” as their newest cause, are themselves the biggest bullies around.
This lack of self-awareness would be funny if not for its serious consequences; look at the number of people who have been verbally and even physically abused by protesters carrying “Love Trumps Hate” signs, for example.
Now one Hollywood celebrity has spoken up on national television against this blatant hypocrisy. Right Wing News reports:
“What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully,” [comedian Tim] Allen told Fox News host Megyn Kelly Monday night on The Kelly File. “But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. And it gets a little bit hypocritical to me.”
Allen, has never shied away from the fact that he is a conservative in Hollywood, like many of his more underground conservative Hollywood friends. In fact, he is a character on a show that is written by liberals, but he himself is plays a conservative character. The show is called: Last Man Standing and airs on ABC. (…)
He really opens up to Megyn Kelly when he starts to talk about his true ‘political standing’ which boils down to him not liking people telling him what to do… in other words, he likes his ‘free will’ and in order for that to take place, he needs to live in a free country.
Allen has continued to do fairly well for himself since his classic eponymous sitcom went off the air. Along with touring as a stand up comic, his new TV comedy allows him to play a crusty conservative curmudgeon, and it’s been doing well in the ratings.
That said, it is still possible that Allen’s refusal to go along with the liberal consensus about Donald Trump could hurt his career down the road. It’s too soon to tell whether or not a Trump presidency will usher in a kind of “golden age” for politically incorrect comedy.
