Allen made the remarks during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel. From Fox News:
“You gotta be real careful around here, you know. You’ll get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes,” Allen told ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel.
“This is like 30s Germany,” the “Last Man Standing” and “Home Improvement” star said. “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.'”
As you can see, Kimmel didn’t take the comment seriously and laughed throughout:
And liberals are reacting as you would expect:

Could be that Tim Allen's real problem is that he was horrifically overrated for a decade but what do I know.

Exit question: If Allen’s comment was to be taken seriously, why did anti-Trump critic Jimmy Kimmel laugh at it? Time to move on, guys.
