Tim Allen and his successful show Last Man Standing is getting another shot as Fox has decided to bring the show back. The show was canceled on ABC after a change in management. There is a lot of speculation as to why the show was canceled. Many feel it was because it was a show that had a conservative bias, which is not what ABC is usually pushing.
Tim Allen plays Mike Baxter, a father who is outspoken about his conservative views. Views that some feel may have helped in ABC’s choice to cancel. Mike is talking to his daughter, Mandy, about giving a speech and is told he has to watch out for microaggressions and make sure he is super PC.
“Microaggressions?” Mike asks Mandy. “You mean, like, ‘midget warriors’?”
“No,” Mandy replies. “They’re objectionable words or phrases. For instance, ‘Midget warriors.’”
“I know what microaggressions are,” Mike says. “It’s the latest liberal attack at free speech. And a lot of fun if you do ’em right.”
“The University has a list of stuff they don’t allow speakers to say to you know protect students,” Mandy explains.
“From what, ideas?” Mike questions.
He then gets told he can’t use the common introduction “Ladies and Gentlemen,” because of gender identities.
“Hmm, But those are the only two choices…” Mike states.
They later cut to Mike talking to his wife about the speech, and how it now contains all of the things the school wanted censored out.
“To quote future Nobel Prize winner Lee Greenwood, ‘I’m proud to be an American.’ Not just because I have the right to speak my mind or carry an awesome gun, but because it’s the land of opportunity,’” Mike reads. “‘Some whiny babies might not think so, but in America, if you work hard, anyone can be successful.”
“The thought police are never gonna approve that speech,” Vanessa warns.
“You know who else wouldn’t approve the speech they want me to give? Me,” Mike replies. “And God, who I’m also not allowed to mention, but I do!”
He’s right, Universities these days don’t want conservative perspectives. They want their PC narratives regurgitated back to them.
But luckily Fox will be bringing them back during the 2018-2019 season.
“Last Man Standing” tells the story of a married father of three who tries to maintain his manliness in a world often dominated by women.
Tim Allen was excited to hear the news.
“When I heard the offer to create more episodes of ‘Last Man Standing,’ I did a fist pump so hard I threw my back out. It’s the fans! I could not be more grateful for the fans who wrote petitions and kept up the passion and incredible support for the show.”
