Won’t Someone Think of the Millionaire Celebrities Who Support Trump?

Tim Allen, a rare conservative working in TV and movies, is something of an idiot. He actually says that conservatives are so mistreated these days that it’s like Nazi Germany in the 30s. Seriously, he said that. Out loud. On national television.


Hollywood has been accused of letting its old McCarthyism shame creep back into the 21st century: driving conservatives into hiding and professional exile, like it once blacklisted communists.

Granted, that analogy goes too far for some. But for others, not far enough.

“You gotta be real careful around here,” actor Tim Allen said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” after stuttering through a confession that he attended President Trump’s inauguration. “You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody else believes. This is like ’30s Germany.”…

But Allen himself has complained of network censorship when his protagonist, an alpha-male family man whom the actor has called ‘an educated Archie Bunker,’ tries to go after liberal icons.

Allen “admits he has gotten more than one warning to stop calling President Obama a ‘communist,’” the TV Page reported in 2015.

Allen didn’t sound so dire during the Republican primaries, when the Hollywood Reporter asked whether he vented his own political views through his character.

“It’s getting more and more comfortable,” he said. “These guys know me so well that they’re writing stuff that is exactly what I would’ve said. It’s a marvelous thing when you have lib­eral people writing for [a show like this].”

Oh, it’s fine. NO IT’S JUST LIKE NAZI GERMANY! THEY’RE THROWING ACTORS IN THE GAS CHAMBERS FOR SUPPORTING TRUMP! Now if you’ll excuse him, he’ll be in the heavily fortified bunker he shares with Chachi and Jon Voight. Tim Allen is not his real name, by the way. His real name is Timothy Allen Dick. Seems fitting.
