Tim Allen recently appeared on The View and spoke about how political correctness and ‘thought police’ on the left are ruining comedy.
One of the notable aspects of his appearance is the seemingly friendly reception he got from Joy Behar, who clearly considers Allen a colleague from her old days in stand up comedy.

Comedian and veteran TV star Tim Allen took aim at the rise of the “thought police,” and noted how “alarming” it is for comedians.
In an interview with the hosts of ABC’s The View, Allen noted that he often has to explain his use of words during his stand-up appearances.
“What I got to do sometimes is explain — which I hate — in big arenas, that this is a thought police thing, and I do not like it. But when I use these words, this is my intent behind those words,” the Last Man Standing star said on Monday.
Allen slammed critics who tell him “Well, just don’t say it,” instead of allowing him his free speech and an opportunity to embrace his comedic art form.
Left-wing host, Joy Behar, even noted that the “PC culture” is making comedy “really hard.”
Allen also added that today’s overweening PC culture is “an alarming thing for comedians.”

People clearly noticed the change in Joy Behar’s attitude:
For all the agreeing Joy did, she sure adds to the problem on a daily basis.

Joy is one of the problems. She enforces standards on that show. Don't ever say anything she disagrees with anywhere near where she can hear you.

Does Joy know that she is on the same team as the thought police?
She doesn’t seem to.
