Tim Allen on Being Conservative in Hollywood: 'This Is Like '30s Germany'

Tim Allen spoke about what it is like being a conservative in Hollywood during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier in the week.

“Yeah, I went to the Inauguration,” Tim said about Donald Trump. “You’ve gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if don’t believe what everybody believes. This is like ’30s Germany. I don’t know what happened. If you’re not part of the group, ‘You know what we believe is right,’ I go, ‘Well, I might have a problem with that.’”

“What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully. But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. And it gets a little bit hypocritical to me,” Tim said in the past. “To me, he acts like a new talent comedian. These are guys that have great material that have very bad comedy timing. And he’s got terrible timing.”

    Fuck Tim Allen. I’d like to see him defend Trump’s positions like cutting meals on wheels

  • Paul Ester

    What an idiot.

  • alorwa

    Don’t be harsh on him, he’s scared of hollywood.

  • devvv

    Pretty sure Hollywood dislikes Trump bc he’s a racist, Islamophobic, misogynistic, ignorant, vastly unqualified sexual predator.

  • Haven

    Why do these has been actors think anyone cares about their political views, or would want to bully them?

  • Lawrence Rainbow

    The man has a point, Democrats and Liberals have proven themselves hypocrites time and again. It sad that the biggest loudmouths and whiners are usually from their party.

  • rrodriguez0309

  • NerdyBirdy i can’t like him now :/

  • namers

    Yes, it’s EXACTLY like Germany in the 30′s, the precursor to the most violent dictator in history.

  • namers

    You didn’t include the most obvious trait which is gravely MENTALLY ILL as in Narcissistic Personality Disorder as per the DSM V. NO CURE!

    I do enjoy “Home Improvement”, it’s been almost 20 years since that show ended, and I gotta tell you, time’s are a-changing, and I don’t think Mr. Allen is liking it. I went to a taping of his new show, and there were a certain jokes and plot lines that seemed dated and somewhat prejudice. I get what he’s saying in the clip, but I also agree that he’s gotta wake up and see what Mr. Trump is all about. I don’t think this was an endorsement from Mr. Allen, but I wouldn’t have gone on Kimmel and shared it, no way. Thoughts?


    After leaving my old employment twelve months earlier, i’ve had some good fortune to understand this online site that was a life-saver for me… They give job opportunities for which people are able to work on the web from their house. My latest paycheck after doing work for them for four months was for $4500… Really great thing about is that the only thing necessary is very simple typing skills and access to internet…Read all about it here >>

    The Fascist in the White House are the problem. No one whines more than the Orange pig and his Nazi Brigades

    RELEASE HER SOUL!!! The world (most of it) is destroying the twin flame God created for everyone to see with lies. It is still incomplete, split and being annihilated. See and read more on the link (site) and throughout his threads for the truth. My BFF is missing the other half of her soul and existence from being so lost and without. This girl has been in agony all of life and misplaced. She has suffered massive hurt, pain and torment since childhood that no one can possibly understand. This comes from still being split and unfinished from the rest of herself and not being able to be completed. The games that are still being played against both halves from those in Hollywood and others. This is preventing the two halves of this one powerful twin flame love from being re-joined. As well as all the pain and hurt that it has been causing her. The people who know and see what this is, need to stand up now and support the truth by spreading the word in any way they can before this love is gone. God blesses those who stand behind His work and His creations in helping reach the truth about their separation. You can go to the link below and that will take you to the additional pages of information on the truth. The truth is ALWAYS out there!!!!

    Or that he treated his opponent horribly – the most qualified candidate to ever run. Still leaves distaste in my mouth the things he called her and the way he sneered at her.

  • SaraJ

    I am a liberal (total Hillary supporter) and I think you can still like Tim Allen. He’s describing what it’s like to be one of only a few in a community who believes one thing. We may not know how he stands on every single issue – maybe he’s just a conservative when it comes to taxes, abortion and religion. Who knows? He seems like a nice enough guy to be honest.
    I will say good for Jimmy Kimmel for asking tougher questions and Tim Allen for being willing to answer them. I feel like without David Letterman and Oprah, we have mush for TV hosts without meaningful interviews anymore – I used to love Fallon but his Tonight Show just a variety show with zero substance.

    First amendment honey!

    The problem is that the aristocracy in 30s Germany didn’t notice what kind of threat Hitler was. So he used the worst possible argument.

  • Melissa Iris

    Tim is right. You cannot have an opinion in the country unless you are a democrat. If you have a different view, you are ridiculed, made to feel like an idiot which you ARENT – you are allowed to a different view – and even in some cases beat up…. It’s happened in my state.

  • Lawrence Rainbow

    Exactly!, that’s precisely what I meant about the hypocrisy of the left. Oh sure its ok when their preaching about freedom of speech but whenever someone says something they don’t wanna hear its shut up and go away!.

  • EastCoastJ

    “The Handmaid’s Tale” ?? What a ham. Trump signing that thing means nothing. And he was right in calling out Muslim homophobia (if you want to worry about a REAL future dystopia).
