It’s not a secret that Hollywood is overwhelmingly liberal. For years, it’s been known that if an actor “comes out” as conservative, their career will likely be destroyed—after they are blacklisted for their political views. Now, in a shocking moment of truth, Tim Allen compared Hollywood to Nazi Germany while making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
It is hard to believe Hollywood continues to attack half the nation’s beliefs. Don’t they know conservatives watch television and movies too? Entertainment is not limited to liberals—unless you work in entertainment (apparently).
Recently Trump supporters boycotted the Oscars, giving the show its lowest ratings in nine years. How low do ratings have to go until Hollywood realizes they live in a bubble and decide to stop attacking those whose political views differ from theirs?
Even Nicole Kidman recently tweeted, “I just say, [Trump‘s] now elected, and we as a country need to support whoever’s the president because that’s what the country’s based on” and was viciously attacked—not even “A-List” folks are safe. It’s simple; if you support Trump, you are a target. This makes Tim Allen’s Jimmy Kimmel Live segment even more shocking—an A-Lister just rightfully compared Hollywood to Nazi Germany.
“‘You gotta be real careful around here,’ Allen noted. ‘You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody else believes. This is like ’30s Germany.’
Allen, 63, plays an outspoken conservative on the sitcom, Last Man Standing, and is one of the few actors in Hollywood to profess having right-wing leanings.
When Kimmel asked him about attending the inauguration ceremony, the Home Improvement star’s eyes bulged, and he stammered: ‘I was invited; we did a VIP thing for the vets and went to a veterans ball, so I went to go see Democrats and Republicans.’”
It’s too early to tell if Tim Allen’s career is over for speaking the truth in front of a national audience. He is to be commended for his bravery. Hopefully, when enough big names come forward (speaking the truth), free speech won’t be a thing of the past in Tinseltown.
