Comedian Tim Allen Attacks the Political Correctness Ruining Comedy

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.

Actor Vince Vaughn Facing Liberal Backlash After Seen With Trump

The liberal mantra: Preach tolerance. Celebrate diversity. Tolerate no diversity of thought, opinion, or ideas.

Vince Vaughn faces liberal backlash after he was seen with President Donald Trump during a national championship game.

Fox News:

Movie star Vince Vaughn, a self-described libertarian who has supported Republican candidates in the past, is facing backlash on social media after a video emerged on Twitter showing him with President Trump during the national championship game Monday in New Orleans, La.

Vaughn was seen chatting and laughing in a private box with the president, as Melania sat between them. The pair shook hands and Trump appeared to point to the star’s lanyard, according to a 31-second clip uploaded to Twitter.

The video was uploaded by a former Deadspin employee, Timothy Burke, who captioned it, “I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it.”

The social media reaction was swift and called for him to be “canceled.” It is not the first time a celebrity faced social-media odium for their decision to interact with a Republican politician. Ellen DeGeneres faced backlash when video emerged of her sitting with ex-President George W. Bush during a Cowboys game.  More

But the left preaches tolerance, right? Anyone who gets upset over this is the reason we are so politically divided.

‘Comedian’ George Lopez Asks Iran for Bounty to Assassinate Trump

Purported comedian George Lopez jumped to Instagram to tell the Iranians that he would assassinate Trump for a bounty of only $40 million.

Purported comedian George Lopez jumped to Instagram to tell the Iranians that he would assassinate Trump for a bounty of only $40 million.

Over the weekend, an Iranian official claimed that the Republic of Iran would offer an $80 million bounty for someone to assassinate Donald Trump.

In response, Lopez said that he’d assassinate Trump for only $40 million.

The failed sitcom star’s post came in response to a news report about Iran’s $80 million bounty offer.

Ryan Fournier, founder and co-chairman of Students for Trump, wondered if the Secret Service was checking into the Lopez threat:

Others were just as outraged as Fournier:

Mark George Lopez down as just another Hollywood ingrate who hates this country despite the fact that it has made him a multi-millionaire.

Monty Python Star Terry Gilliam ‘Tired’ of White Males Being ‘Blamed for Everything’

Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam recently took a swipe at PCism saying, “I’m tired, as a white male, of being blamed for everything that is wrong with the world.”

Published

Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam recently took a swipe at PCism saying, “I’m tired, as a white male, of being blamed for everything that is wrong with the world.”

The Monty Python animator and film director took aim at the #MeToo movement calling many of its campaigns against white men a “witch hunt.”

The Time Bandits director added that all too often the #MeToo movement devolved into a “mob mentality.”

In the interview with the Independent, Gilliam said: “Yeah, I said #MeToo is a witch hunt – I really feel there were a lot of people, decent people, or mildly irritating people, who were getting hammered. That’s wrong. I don’t like mob mentality.”

“I understand that men have had more power longer, but I’m tired, as a white male, of being blamed for everything that is wrong with the world – I didn’t do it!” Gilliam continued.

“I’m talking about being a man accused of all the wrong in the world because I’m white-skinned. So I better not be a man. I better not be white. OK, since I don’t find men sexually attractive, I’ve got to be a lesbian. What else can I be? I like girls. These are just logical steps,” he impishly added.

This is hardly the first time that Gilliam has struck out against political correctness.

The 12 Monkeys director made similar comments in 2018.

“You know I no longer want to be a white male and be blamed for everything; I tell the world I am a BLGT, Black Lesbian in Transition and my name is Loretta,” he said during an address at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.

“Comedy is not assembled – a boy, a girl, white, black, a dog… I want to be trans-species. Transgender is not enough,” he concluded at the time.

The director’s latest slap at PCism came as he set out on a promotional tour for his next film, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, which is to be released in a few weeks.

Anti-Fox News ‘Bombshell’ One of Biggest Bombs of 2019

With all the talk of the crashing failure of Universal’s ‘Cats,’ it is easy to forget the other box office failure this year, the anti-Fox News movie, ‘Bombshell.’

Published

on

With all the talk of the crashing failure of Universal’s Cats, it is easy to forget that one of the other big box office failures this year was the anti-Fox News movie, Bombshell.

The liberal entertainment media celebrated the coming release of the movie aimed at tearing down the reputation of Fox News founder Roger Ailes. The film featured some amazing star power, too, bringing even more accolades from the media.

The film starred big names such as Nicole Kidman, starring as former Fox News personality Gretchen Carlson, and Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly. The film also featured John Lithgow as Roger Ailes, and current “it” actress Margot Robbie.

Reviewers ahead of the film’s release loved the take down of Ailes.

Critics celebrated Theron’s mimic as Megyn Kelly and even threw around the idea that she is an Oscar contender for the role.

Even the couch potatoes at film review site Rotten Tomatoes gave the movie a 67 percent, which isn’t too bad considering fellow box office bomb, Cats, earned an abysmal 20 percent positive rating.

With all that star power coupled with the left’s hand-wringing about this “#MeToo” era, how could this anti-Fox News film be a miss?

Well, a miss is the least of it. Bombshell was a legitimate bomb.

For its important opening weekend, Bombshell pulled in a paltry $15.6 million in ticket sales, not even half its estimated $33 million budget.

And this week, after twenty days in release, the film has only earned $18 million at the domestic box office, and a tiny $228,000 overseas. This marks the film as a crashing box office failure of near epic proportions. Apparently the only actual “me too” for the film was film goers saying they too took a pass on the film.

In the end, it appears that America simply doesn’t care to see a movie that tears down Roger Ailes, the father of Fox News.

Marvel Studios Chief Kevin Feige Says Transgender and Gay Superheroes Are Coming

Comic book superhero movie giant Marvel Studios has announced that it is introducing a transgender person and a gay superhero in its upcoming properties.

Published

Comic book superhero movie giant Marvel Studios has announced that it is introducing a transgender person and a gay superhero in its upcoming properties.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently announced the addition of the trans and gay characters to the Marvel cinematic universe at a Q&A at the New York Film Academy, according to CBR.com.

During the Q&A session, Feige was asked about plans to include a trans character, and the Marvel chief was enthusiastic over the idea.

“Yes. Absolutely. Yes. Very soon. In a movie we’re shooting right now,” Feige exclaimed.

Get ready, America, because the gay and trans heroes are coming.

Marvel has not revealed just what character in what movie will be its first trans hero. But a group of next-generation heroes are already either before cameras or gearing up for filming.

The flicks in the works include Black Widow, Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Black Panther 2, Blade and Tom Holland’s third Spider-Man film.

But comics industry watchers assume that the most likely candidates for that trans character are The Eternals and the martial arts flick Shang-Chi.

Indeed, The Eternals has already been noted for including a new gay superhero. Last year, Feige announced that the movie would include a gay character who is married. “He’s married. He’s got a family. And that is just part of who he is,” Fiege said at the D23 Expo.

Marvel took criticism for claiming it had introduced a gay character in its blockbuster The Avengers: End Game, but when the film hit theaters, LGBTQ advocates were disappointed that the character was not one of the heroes or even an integral character, but instead was just a character who appeared in one scene as an afterthought.

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.

Published

on

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.”

And…

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.

And this:

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.
