Tim Allen, star of ‘Home Improvement’ and the recently cancelled ‘Last Man Standing,’ just let the world know what he thinks about Hollywood, politics and comedy. The entire interview is fascinating, but especially when he lets slip the biggest secret in Hollywood.
It’s not easy being a conservative in an era that’s chock full of anti-Trump sentiment.
The negativity against the Right is everywhere you look.
The mainstream media is completely consumed with false narratives and only telling one side of the story, and entertainment options are increasingly revolving around identity politics and social justice issues.
It’s a welcome relief to find an option that’s not buried with spin, but the broadcast networks aren’t all that interested in that.
In fact, they even cancelled a highly-rated show because the lead character leaned too far to the right for their tastes.
Tim Allen’s ‘Last Man Standing’ was cancelled by ABC, but the network claims it had nothing to do with politics.
The conservative actor isn’t buying it.
The Hill shares what he had to say in an interview on the “Norm Macdonald Live” podcast.
“It was handled very badly,” Allen said of the cancellation in a Tuesday interview on the “Norm Macdonald Live” podcast.
“Second biggest show — haven’t won a Friday night in 15 years,” Allen said, referring to the ratings.
“I have no idea why they did what they did,” he told Macdonald.
Tim Allen was always frustrated that interviewers would treat him as if he was the characters he played. In the clip below, Tim reveals how he feels about government and taxes, and only socialist liberals could disagree with him:
Here’s Tim explaining the liberal pushback even on his own staff—but Tim wasn’t having any of it:
Allen said he always wanted his character on the show to be like the blue-collar, politically-incorrect protagonist played by Carroll O’Connor on “All in the Family.”
“Archie Bunker pushed boundaries,” Allen, 64, said.
It’s pretty unreal that we even have to consider a conservative viewpoint as one that pushes boundaries, but that’s the state of entertainment these days.
One glance at any number of insufferable awards shows tells you all you need to know, as the amount of hate and vitriol towards President Donald Trump that comes out of famous faces is mind-blowing.
“There’s nothing more dangerous to me, especially in this climate, than a funny, likable conservative,” Allen continued. “That was the most dangerous thing, because he’s mitigated on the show by a family of all women that had different opinions, but the guy was a likable guy and really a principled guy just about work, and ethics, and all this stuff.”
“I think there’s nothing more dangerous, right now, than a likable conservative character,” Allen repeated.
The irony of stifling and blasting an opposing viewpoint is completely lost by the so-called party of inclusion.
The braintrust behind the Democratic game plan apparently thinks this is the way to warm voters hearts.
The fact that the party’s candidate for president is running around rambling about ‘what happened’ should be more than enough evidence that the game plan is inherently flawed.
