Conservative Tim Allen Goes on ‘The View’ and Shreds Political Correctness Like a Boss

The right-leaning comedian stood up to the co-hosts — that's saying something

Pro-Trump comedian Tim Allen appeared on Monday on ABC’s “The View” — and discussed the dangers of political correctness, especially in comedy.

Allen told the ladies of “The View” that he was disgusted by the “thought police” and how he has to tone down his comedy these days depending on the audience — and who may or may not be offended.

“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 when I use these words, this is my intent behind those words.”

He correctly stated that even when people understand his “intent,” he still hears the same old criticism: “‘Well, just don’t say it.'”

Allen also said that political correctness was an “alarming thing for comedians,” and revealed that different audiences were open to hearing different comedic bits, pointing out that those in Democratic states received his comedy differently than those in Republican states did.

Co-host Joy Behar also blasted PC culture — which she admitted makes comedy “really hard.”

Allen did well.

When you can get Joy Behar to agree with the truth — that’s winning, in my view.
