More Republicans are beginning to engage in culture.
And Democrats cannot stand it.
Now a conservative actor told one joke about Joe Biden that drove Democrats crazy.
Democrats lose their minds when people on the left are ridiculed.
Leftists understand the power of mockery, so they get deeply offended when it’s used against them.
And being offended is one way to encourage censorship against a political adversary.
So it came as no surprise when conservative actor and comedian Tim Allen got ripped for telling a harmless joke about Joe Biden.
Biden sat for an interview on 60 Minutes, and Allen joked, “Biden was on 60 minutes. I heard he asked how long the show was.”
Democrats completely lost their minds over this harmless joke.
Some of the social media comments included, “I think the funniest thing Tim Allen has done in the last 20 years is assume that he’s still in any way relevant,” and “Tim Allen said he was famous. I heard everyone ask what decade that was.”
Another commentator said, “And this, kids, is why Tim Allen isn’t the voice of Buzz Lightyear anymore.”
The comment was in reference to Allen not playing Buzz Lightyear in the Disney flop Lightyear.
Allen played Buzz in the four Toy Story movies, and some speculated that he was not invited to play Buzz in the new movie because of his conservative politics.
Actor Chris Evans, a partisan Democrat who constantly rags on Republicans, replaced Allen in the film.
Lightyear included a controversial lesbian kiss, which frustrated some parents who felt that was inappropriate for a kids’ movie.
Evans responded, “It’s hard not to be a little frustrated that it has to be a topic of discussion, which is this kind of ‘news’…The goal is that we can get to a point where this is the norm and this doesn’t have to be some uncharted waters, that eventually it does. That representation in every aspect is how we make movies…It is an honor to be a part of something that is taking these steps, but the point is to look back and be shocked that it took us so long to get there.”
Regardless, Lightyear included “woke” messaging that did not seem to go over well with audiences.
Allen got in hot water when he went on Jimmy Kimmel after the election of Donald Trump and admitted that he attended Trump’s inauguration.
Allen told Kimmel, “You gotta be real careful around here, you know? You’ll get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes. It’s like ‘30s Germany.”
Everybody understands that Hollywood leans left, but the film industry truly has become a leftist monoculture.
As Allen mentioned, people who do not agree are playing with fire.
Gina Carano found out the hard way when she was fired from Disney’s The Mandalorian.
Her great crime was voting for Trump and questioning the diktats of the COVID regime.
Hopefully, more conservative voices on the Right will speak up in order to provide some balance in American culture.
Surveys show that only hard leftists feel comfortable sharing their views.
Most people are not like Allen; they simply hold their tongue.
