Tim Allen is Being Called a Racist This Morning. Confused? So Are We.
Do some DDP Yoga before reading this post. You'll be needing the flexibility to appreciate how big a stretch this is. Tim Allen and Tom Hanks were on a junket for Toy Story 4 when Hanks was asked about his infamous "Black Jeopardy" sketch on SNL. Funny. Friendly. Noncontroversial. You should watch it. And yes, the idea of a fourth Toy Story is almost as much of a stretch as this accusation of racism. Which according to at least one blue checkmark, is REALLLY raaaaaaacist. (h/t Twitchy)
Why that is openly racist, I have no idea. But you see how the statement of racism is made with a video that was, if anything, more confusing than it was illuminating. So maybe the accusation of racism is just a generic leftist attack against one of the few actors who isn't a brown-shirted fascist demanding you cede your First Amendment rights (see ‘Last Man Standing’ Mocks Leftists’ Failure to Understand Capitalism and Tim Allen Skewers Perpetually Negative Cable News on ‘Last Man Standing’). Others say the accusations of racism have nothing to do with the video in which "jeremy bearimey" (clever) says Allen is squirming from his open racism. Some internet detectives instead say the racism stems from Allen's comments about using a certain five or six letter word.
That he made six years ago.
*play ominous music*
Six years ago, people. Six. That's one more than five, one less than seven. Obama was still president, people were still allowed to be funny, and Facebook wasn't throttling conservative pages' views. Basically, it was ages ago, and we need to move on.
On the surface, this seems stupid. Mostly because it is stupid. So if you are here, still, wondering WTF did you actually do reading this article and for what purpose, congratulations. We agree with you. If you feel like "I'm never going to get that two minutes back," you're not alone. But this is where we are as a culture. Tim Allen said some things six years ago, and today he's not a brainwashed leftist marching in lockstep to the sound of squealing pussy-hatted broads. This makes him a target for destruction.
As we all know, when the outrage mob comes for you, facts don't matter. Neither does accuracy, rational arguments, or the tincture of time. Tim Allen said a thing. For this, he must be destroyed. It starts with a blue check mark raising the alarm to other blue check marks. It does seem like they hand out those checkmarks to just about everyone except @Courtneyscoffs. She's not bitter, she's just curious.
We're laughing at this now. Give the entertainment blogs run by Big Tech until lunchtime before "reporters" make Toy Story 4 about Tim Allen saying the N-word six years ago.
