Tim Allen Trolls Leftists With A Karl Marx Quote


Nov 17, 2020

Never one to pass up an opportunity to scold the woke scolds, comedian Tim Allen trolled leftists on Twitter with a quote from Karl Marx. placeholder

In a tweet, Allen demonstrated what an “honest progressive position” looks like by highlighting a few Marxian principles that might have escaped their minds’ eyes.

“Finally an honest progressive position: ‘…short-term demands among them a progressive income tax; abolition of inheritances and private property; abolition of child labor; free public education; nationalization of the means of transport.’ Guess who wrote this,” tweeted Allen.

“Carl Marx. Communist manifesto. Wikipedia,” he added in a second tweet.

Allen quickly corrected his misspelling of Carl to say “Karl” in a follow-up tweet.

Allen will be returning to primetime this fall with season 9 of his hit show “Last Man Standing.” The show went on an unexpected hiatus in 2018 following ABC’s abrupt cancellation of the program, despite solid ratings and a loyal fanbase.

Speculation at the time was that parent-company Disney cut the show because it centers on a Christian conservative patriarch that says politically incorrect things.

Regarding President Donald Trump, Allen, an outspoken conservative, told Entertainment Weekly in 2018 that he never classified himself as a “Trump supporter” (he endorsed Kasich). He urged people to calm down and look at the great work he had done with the economy.

“I’ve met [Trump] at the charity event years ago, and that certainly doesn’t fit with the man who tweets. I’ve met a lot of people in private whose public persona is a bit off. My perception is ‘let’s see what he gets done,’” Allen said. “Let’s stop banging on the pilot’s door and trying to pull the guy out of his seat while he’s still flying. You might not like how he’s flying the plane but let’s let him land it.”

Allen also suggested that maybe some of Trump’s style could just be for show, as he gets results people have long been waiting for.

“Do I like him or agree with him? … I don’t know. Somebody got this NAFTA thing done. How did that happen? It’s like a sleight of hand with this dude,” added Allen. “There’s this smoke and smelly food but over here he just fixed a pothole. The theater of this is fascinating.”

“He doesn’t do it very attractively but you don’t even realize the economy is doing better,” Allen continued. “Is it? There’s so much drama. Maybe it took this type of guy to get stuff done because it was so stuck in the mud. I’m just watching the theater of it and trying to keep my personal opinions out of it. What difference does it make whether I like him?”

As to why his “Last Man Standing” character Mike Baxter has become such a popular character as a wealthy blue-collar guy, Allen said it’s because Baxter worked from the ground up and loves the outdoors along with how things work.

  1. Tim Allen luckily has a soapbox to have his opinions heard. I agree with his assessment of President Trump. No, he is not a polished political figure. He is blunt, gruff and loud most of the time. He is like many Americans who have been ignored by the left and RINOs. Politicians who make promise after promise every campaign. Then once they are in office, those promises fade away till the next campaign season. With Trump, he has made every effort to keep and fulfill those promises, and that is without any support from the left, i.e. media, Democrats, RINO’s and never-Trumpers and the deep state filled with government employees who are there forever since they are not appointed to a position. I know, I was one, but kept my political opinions out of my work environment and how I performed my work. I was unbiased with everyone I dealt with. Best way to perform your job no matter where you are. I am still very positive with how this election finally turns out. More and more evidence is turning up about voter fraud in every state. Let’s see what happens.

    1. John, I mostly agree with what you have to say. My one thing is – as a federal worker in the DC area, I found there was LOTS of pressure to be with or against political officers – from having to donate to their “special cause” or voice support or opposition about the ones the office boss supported or opposed…that was the NORM~ Didn’t like it either…my job pretty much demanded that I not voice ANY opinion unless it was what to order for a luncheon for top execs…i.e. I was responsible for submitting “time cards” of some high level execs – to show where they were during the day…office, other building, other city, etc and found that if I submitted where I KNEW someone was instead of where they CLAIMED they were, I’d be in lots of trouble getting “pay back attitude”…NOT FUN…so I determined I would NOT be a “lifer”!

  2. The difference between President Trump and Joe Biden and a lot of Democrats is that President Trump can not be bought. He is a person that says what he means not like most Democrats that believe do as I say not as I do. That’s my opinion.

    1. I so agree with you Shelly..spot on! The smooth talking Dems are just that…with no substance. Trump is certainly not a smooth talker but is a straight shooter which is what I admire about him. He follows through on his promises in spite of the Dems trying to trip him up and destroy him every step of the way. That man is Teflon! I don’t know if any other human being that could withstand the pressure he has been under for the past 4 years. He is an amazing man and truly represents America citizens.
      Keep America Great 2020 🇺🇸

  3. so sad in America that we let the media and Hollywood elect our next President! NO ONE SEEMS TO HAVE A MIND OF THEIR OWN, ANYMORE! The college kids are just regurgitating what their last liberal instructor told them to believe, and with revisionist history, we are all destined to repeat mistakes made! SO SAD FOR AMERICA!
