‘Last Man Standing’ Star Tim Allen Says Politically Correct Culture Is “Alarming”
Tim Allen’s hit show ‘Last Man Standing’ starts its new season on January 2nd, and like most TV stars do before a premier, he’s making the rounds on the daily talk show circuit.
While promoting his show, Allen stopped over at The View, and received a very warm welcome, which is rare these days for a famous conservative.
Never afraid to speak his mind, Tim opened up about his recent standup-comedy tour, and the impact PC culture has had on comedians.
“What I’ve got to do sometimes is explain — which I hate, in big arenas, and 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,” Allen tells the ladies.
“So as long as you understand my intent,” he continues. “I still get people: ‘Well, just don’t say it,’ and I said, ‘I’m not going to do that.'”
“It really is an alarming thing for comedians,” Allen adds. “But my act is really about family, and kids, and growing up anyway.”
Allen goes on to say that growing up, now matter what, his family “always hated the government.”
“‘Who’s gonna pay for it?’ They always argued that over vodka,” he jokes. “Vodka, and cigarettes.”
The comedy legend then goes into a story about growing up, and the time he was caught stealing.
“I stole money from my parents, I never worked, and my on grandma says ‘I think we got ourselves a little Democrat over here.'”
“I do that in Miami, people laugh, and cheer. You do it in Reading, Pennsylvania? ‘Oh, hey, oh.”

“Go watch the movie ‘Blazing Saddles’,” he says. “You can’t even watch that without looking around in your own home!”
