Oddly enough, a commonsense discussion about how the "we culture" movement is trying to dictate speech came from a Hollywood sitcom dad. Tim Allen recently expressed his views on conservative financial policy and pivoted into his disdain for political correctness.
Allen is a self-proclaimed fiscal conservative. He simply doesn't like the idea that the government hauls in our tax dollars with virtually no accountability for where it gets spent. Allen, like most fiscal conservatives, feels we as citizens make better choices with our money than Washington DC does.
“Once I started making money, I had the silent partner that took almost half of my money and never gave me anything for it, and that was the taxes. Never liked taxes,” Allen said. “Whoever takes the taxes and never tells me what they do with them. I’m a fiscal conservative person with money.”
“I work pretty hard for this stuff and I accomplished a lot. I was handicapped by my own errors – that’s all my fault, I get that. But I had this silent partner. Never liked taxes,” he added. “Never liked what they do with taxes and the bulls***, both sides. It’s not their money.”
The iconic stand-up comedian also isn't buying into the agenda of the "we culture". Allen, certainly in contrast with the majority of the woke Hollywood moguls, sort of got a kick out of how former President Donald Trump pissed people off with his banter.
Sometimes it's uncomfortable to hear the truth. Of all the outspoken Hollywood types, Allen's associations with dignitaries from both sides of the political spectrum boost his credibility. He's shared experiences across White House administrations for the last 30 years.
“Once I realized the last president pissed people off, I kind of liked that. So it was fun to just not say anything,” Allen said, adding that he “didn’t join in the lynching crowd.”
“I even know the Clintons and Bill Clinton has been a very genuinely nice guy to me,” Allen said. The actor said he sent Christmas gifts to the White House when Bill Clinton was president and continued the practice with former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
Allen has publically expressed his views about political correctness. To Allen, the idea that people should be telling us what to say or what not to say is nothing more than thought police. He's disgruntled about having to qualify half the content he says on stage as part of a comedy routine.
Our country is consumed in an all-out-assault by the cancel culture, the "we culture" and the woke generation. It's a scary time for anyone paying attention to the obvious targets of these agenda. Maybe we just need to all lighten up and realize that some people are going to get pissed off no matter what we say.
