You don’t need to be some sort of genius to figure out that America is in the midst of a culture war. The main-stream media, and liberals as a whole have teamed up in an effort to demonize anyone who considers themselves to be conservative.
Now, conservative celebrities are speaking out, and shining light on how the media is shaping the population’s way of thinking.
Tim Allen, star of hit TV shows like Home Improvement, and Last Man Standing, saw the latter get pulled after its most successful season. The reason according to Tim: having a ‘likable’ conservative character as the star.
Allen, who had likened his character to All In The Family’s Archie Bunker, told Norm MacDonald “there is nothing more dangerous, especially in this climate, than a funny, likable conservative character.” This is what led to the cancellation of his wildly popular show.
“I always wanted ‘Last Man Standing’ to be like Archie Bunker. Archie Bunker pushed boundaries, but Carroll O’Connor was not that guy at all. I am a version of that guy. But there is nothing more dangerous, especially in this climate, than a funny, likable conservative character. He is mitigated on the show by a family of women who had a difference of opinions, but he was a likeable guy and a principled guy about work and ethics and all this stuff, I think.”
Of course, ABC had denied the claims that the show was cancelled for political reasons, but that doesn’t explain ending a show that is still getting excellent ratings. However, when you see what else is going on with the Disney Company, you begin to understand that Bob Iger and crew are up to. They are making sure they stomp out any conservative values they may be spreading.
Other networks, like CMT, were rumored to be interested in taking over the show, but such talks have apparently broken down. Hopefully Hollywood will get back into the business of entertaining us, instead of promoting political agendas.
