Tim Allen Talks Having Conservative Political Beliefs In Hollywood

Being a Hollywood conservative isn't easy, according to Tim Allen. The "Last Man Standing" star appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week, where he discussed comedy and his Republican beliefs.


"You gotta be real careful around here, you know. You'll get beat up if you don't believe what everybody believes," the 63-year-old said. "This is like 30s Germany. 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,'" he added.

Allen, a Hollywood veteran of 42 years, isn't the only Republican in town. But he's one of the few who openly talks about it. There was even a secret group of conservative Hollywood directors, actors, producers and backstage crew workers who supported one another in the growing liberal landscape of Tinseltown. The now-defunct organization was called Friends of Abe and was founded more than a decade ago by actors Gary Sinise, Kelsey Grammer and Jon Voight.

“As a conservative, if you expressed your political views at work, you would be weeded out,” Jack Marino, a film-maker, told the Guardian last April.

In November, Allen called out Hollywood Democrats for bullying people who supported Donald Trump.

"What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully," Allen told Megyn Kelly last year. "But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. And it gets a little bit hypocritical to me."
