Kirsters Baish| Unfortunately for the cast of “Roseanne,” leading lady Roseanne Barr couldn’t behave herself on social media, and succeeded in getting the show canceled. A couple of weeks ago, Barr tweeted that Obama era White House aide Valerie Jarrett looked as if the “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby,” as reported by Fox News. Luckily for the cast of “Last Man Standing,” funny man Tim Allen doesn’t mess around when it comes to racially insensitive tweets, nor politics. After ABC canceled the show in 2017, with no apparent reason as to why, Fox picked it up this year. Yes, that’s right. ABC didn’t give a definitive answer as to why they canceled the show, which had great ratings and seemed to be a fan favorite. The public was left to speculate, and many feel that the cancellation was politically motivated, although it has not been proven.
While Tim Allen doesn’t waste his time on social media, ridiculing others, he does make his stance on political matters very clear in the show. If there’s one thing that Conservative Americans understand about colleges and universities in our country, it’s that they tend to coddle students to a point that is actually quite damaging. These kids have no idea what the real world is like, because everyone is given a trophy for simply participating these days.
Take a look at Tim Allen’s comments about the “snowflake generation” in the clip below:
Allen’s character, Mike Baxter, gets into a conversation with his daughter, Mandy, about the way millennials are coddled.
Mandy states to Mike’s comment, “No, uh, you can’t say ‘Ladies and gentlemen,’ because it excludes those who don’t identify as either.”
Mike responds to his daughter definitively stating, “Hmm. But those are the only two choices.”
“No, not anymore. You just have to keep it gender-neutral, okay? Please continue,” she pushes.
Mike begins again, “Hey, everybody. America is the land of opportunity. I stand before you as –”
Mandy cuts him off, “Stop! Okay, by saying that America’s the land of opportunity, you are implying that everyone has the same opportunities.”
Mike snaps back, “I’m not implying it. I’m saying it. If you live here and you work hard, you can succeed. That’s how this works.”
Mandy states, “Uh…yeah, that one’s on here, too. It hurts the feelings of those who work hard and don’t succeed.”
This episode couldn’t be more accurate. College students are taught that just saying that they tried is enough in life. We are all given the same opportunities as Americans. We cannot argue with this statement. It’s written in our country’s Constitution.
Louderwithcrowder.com reported on this episode when it aired in December of 2016:
In this instance, Mike Baxter was asked to give a speech to a bunch of adult business majors. He couldn’t say things like “America is the land of opportunity” or “if you work hard, you’ll succeed.” That is, lest he trigger the sniveling snot goblins.
It’s in this way that “Last Man Standing” touches on the suckiest of realities – the left forces everyone to cater to their whims. You have to edit yourself to abide by their arbitrary set of rules. You know, because tolerance. You should be open minded to their beliefs. But the idea that hard work gets you places – like out of the safe space and into the work force? Too triggering to handle. The idea must be quashed thusly!
Fox must have seen something about the show that made it worth bringing back, and fans couldn’t be more thrilled!
