Comedian Tim Allen says Hollywood is like “1930s Germany” for conservative actors like him who “don’t believe what everybody believes.”
“You’ve gotta be real careful around here,” the former Home Improvement star said during an appearance Friday on Jimmy Kimmel Live! “You get beat up if don’t believe what everybody believes. This is like ’30s Germany.”
“I don’t know what happened,” Allen, 63, continued. “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.’ “
This isn’t the first time Allen has spoken out about his political beliefs. The comedian narrated an ad for GOP presidential hopeful John Kasich during the 2016 election and has also spoken positively about President Donald Trump.
In the interview on Friday, however, Allen hesitated before admitting that he attended Trump’s inauguration in January.
“I was invited, we did a VIP thing for the vets, and went to a veterans ball, so I went to go see Democrats and Republicans,” he explained. “Yeah, I went to the inauguration.”

“I’m not attacking you,” Kimmel replied, laughing.

Allen also told Fox News host Megyn Kelly in November: “What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully. But if you had any inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. And it gets a bit hypocritical for me.”
