Tim Allen Calls Out The Overly PC Climate That Is Killing Comedy
Tim Allen, known for his past roles as Tim the tool man Taylor, or more recently as Mike Baxter on “Last Man Standing,” appeared on The View to talk about how comedy has changed in large part due to the overly PC climate. He claims he now has to put out a disclaimer to his audience about what his words mean to him, just to try and offset the overly sensitive libs.
“Allen, whose popular right-leaning show “Last Man Standing” was famously canceled by ABC in 2017 despite excellent ratings, sparking allegations of political bias on the part of the network, brought up the “thought police” after co-host and fellow comedian Joy Behar asked him about how he handles the “PC culture” that is so strongly influencing comedy these days.
Allen responded by saying he grew up watching comedians Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor. “You can’t even go back and talk about the book he wrote,” Allen lamented in reference to Pryor.
“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,” said Allen. “But [I say] ‘when I use these words, this is my intent behind those words. So as long as you understand my intent…’”
“I still get people [saying], ‘Well, just don’t say it,’” he added, imitating his critics. “And I say I’m not going to do that.”

Allen later claims you can’t even watch the movie “Blazing Saddles” anymore without worrying about who is the room. He is not wrong. Mel Brooks claims his movies would never have been made had the climate been as bad as it is now. Monty Python members have made similar claims. Hopefully, people wake up and stop with this overly sensitive B.S.
