Tim Allen Calls Out Hollywood Liberals: 'This is Like 30s Germany'
Comedian Tim Allen said being a Republican in Hollywood can be difficult because the majority of people in show business tend to be staunchly liberal.
"You gotta be real careful around here, you know. You'll get beat up if you don't believe what everybody believes," Allen told ABC's Jimmy Kimmel.
"This is like 30s Germany," the "Last Man Standing" and "Home Improvement" star said. "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.'"
Allen's political views have occasionally ruffled feathers, like when his current program reportedly edited-out his jokes about President Obama being "a Communist," as well as banter about Hillary Clinton, according to Fox News Radio.
He supported Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) in the Republican primary, according to the Independent Journal Review.
Allen also told Kimmel he attended President Trump's inauguration in Washington, and attended a veterans' ball at the time.
He also discussed his concerns about privacy from government surveillance.
"If a government drove by down the street with like a gray sedan with a camera on it, you'd be rioting and going to Washington. But if it's white with emojis and Google on it, 'yay', you're waving at it [while] they're taking pictures of your house."
