The Disney-owned ABC network determined a line was crossed when it cut a joke in a new sitcom that referenced communism and President Barack Obama.

Comedian Tim Allen’s new ABC sitcom “Last Man Standing” offers up laughs at the president’s expense in its season premiere that will air four days before the election, the New York Post reported, but some jokes left on the cutting-room floor.

In the episode, Allen’s character, Mike Baxter, tries to persuade his 18-year-old daughter to vote for Mitt Romney.

“The Democrats will tax [your] inheritance and probably use that money to throw gay weddings for illegal aliens,” Allen’s character tells her.

“Democrats love spending other people’s money. Free health care for everybody . . . Whoopee! Now lazy people can go around licking doorknobs.”

Allen was essentially censored by the network when it came to other jokes. He told the Post that ABC cut a line in which his character calls the president “a communist.”

“I love communist jokes,” Allen said. “The right sees everything as a communist.”

ABC also cut a joke making fun of the Clintons, Allen told the Post.
“We also had this line about the Clintons where I say, ‘They’re like shingles; just when you think they are gone, they pop back up.’ ”

Two Obama lines which survived the censor were:
“Romney is a doer. It’s easy to be consistent, like Obama, when all you have done is ‘organize communities.’ ”

“He did a great job with that South Side of Chicago. It runs like a watch down there. Of course, you can’t wear one.”
