Comedian and TV star Tim Allen took aim at the rise of the “thought police,” and noted how “alarming” it is for comedians.
In an interview with the host of ABC’s The View, Allen noted that he often has to explain his use of words during appearances.
“What I got to do sometimes is explain — which I hate — in big arenas, that this is a thought police thing, and I do not like it. But when I use these words, this is my intent behind those words,” the Last Man Standing star said on Monday.
He slammed critics who tell him “Well, just don’t say it,” instead of allowing him his free speech and his comedic art.
Left-wing host, Joy Behar, even noted that the “PC culture” is making comedy “really hard.”
Allen also added that today’s overweening PC culture is “an alarming thing for comedians.”

Allen also spoke to the bristly nature of too many people, especially liberals, just last year.
“I like to mess around because I’ve been a standup fiery comic for 30 years. And I like pissing people off, and I said there’s nothing, especially in this area, that pisses people off more than a very funny conservative,” Allen told Indie Wire last year. “A smart, funny conservative that takes shots and is certainly self-effacing.”
“The left-wing point of view is so pervasive that they don’t even realize it’s a point of view. It is just a point of view. I think this character likes that, he likes to have another point of view,” Allen added referring to his character on Last Man Standing.
“Liberals have a very small window of sense of humor about themselves, so I love poking at it,” he said.
Allen went on saying that liberals, “particularly progressives,” hide behind causes.
“If you don’t agree with them, if you don’t agree with that position, then you hate women, and you hate gay people, and you hate pro-choice people, whatever,” Allen said. “And I said that doesn’t fit. But I like pushing that and sometimes these guys let Mike Baxter say it, and he’s more of a pragmatist. He reminds me of my grandmother. He just hates big government.”
Allen is only one of many comedians blasting the “woke” PC culture. Allen joins comedians such as Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Howie Mandel, Mel Brooks, and Dave Chappelle, all of whom have noted how wokeness is killing comedy and the entertainment industry.

BOX OFFICE BOMB: New ‘Terminator’ Features Murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agents by Mexican Character
The newest ‘Terminator’ movie series features a scene showing the mass murder of U.S. Border Patrol agents at the hands of a Mexican character.
The huge box office bomb that is the latest entry in the Terminator movie series features a scene showing the mass murder of U.S. Border Patrol agents at the hands of a Mexican-American actor in the film.
Terminator: Dark Fate, the much awaited sixth entry in the Terminator series of films, has landed with a thud at the box office. For its debut weekend, the action flick starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton has pulled in a paltry $28 million in ticket sales. This is a major flop, folks.
Often if these Hollywood blockbusters don’t make back a good chuck of their production costs in the first weekend, the chances are it will lose money. So, how much did Dark Fate cost to make? $185 million. And it only made $28 million that first weekend? Yes, this is a huge flop.
The movie is the most “woke” Terminator yet, too.
Not only are viewers assailed with “strong women” tropes throughout the movie, but one scene features U.S. Border Patrol officers and ICE agents being slaughtered by a Mexican character while illegal aliens flee and escape custody.
Apparently, the Terminator is just as prepared to kill the immigration officials who protect our country as it is to kill robots from the future.
But with its hate for males, its murder of American immigration officials, and its general “wokeness,” the critics sure love the film.
As American Greatness noted:
“It’d be fascinating to see a world where the Terminators are working as ICE agents,” wrote one critic, “the ultimate purveyors of evil.”
The “best-paced scene in the movie,” wrote another critic, is set “in a U.S. Border Patrol detention center, complete with, yes, undocumented migrants in cages.” That’s the part where “Rev-9,” the villain played by Gabriel Luna, hacks, slashes, and disembowels a platoon of Border Patrol agents who happen to be conspicuously white. That scene made it into the trailer, presumably because producers thought it would play well with woke viewers.
One “great thing about the film,” wrote a critic, “is that there are barely any cis men in it—the only ones have bit parts, and most of them die.” Well, then . . . what better to recommend it?
The left-wing, anti-American critics absolutely loved Date Fate.
Audiences are avoiding it in droves.
