I really hate the whole "Deplatform the Badthinkers!" thing that Leftists do. Leftists spent the first half of the 20th Century trying to get the Hayes Code and Comics Code undone, railing against censorship that was designed to keep "immoral filth" out of public spaces. Filmmakers developed creative ways to "slip crap under the radar", putting thickly veiled references to homosexuality and oral sex into Noir films and championing social causes that wouldn't come out into the open until the 1960s.

But once the floodgates opened, and everything was freed, the Leftists began working tirelessly to usher Conservative Speech and values out of the public realm, shutting the gates behind them. The Leftists became the very pearl-clutching Church Ladies the Conservatives had once been, only now said Church Ladies were screeching against frog memes and calling anybody who wanted America to have a functioning border a racist. Leftists today have no self-awareness - no conception of the idea that, one day, the pendulum might swing back and it'll be Conservatives who will once again decide what's allowed to be in the public sphere. And this time, the Conservatives will know that the Leftist's consequent bleats about "Muh free speech! Muh freedom of expression!" are nothing but a cynical ploy to get the reins of control back into their hands so THEY can be the ones pulling the Censorship strings.
I miss knowing who the enemy was.

Once upon a time, the enemy was the televangelist in the three piece suit and Coke bottle glasses. He railed against the immoral degenerates and demanded filth be removed from newsstands—in handcuffs if need be. "I know it when I see it!" he grumbled. Meanwhile, he embezzled money and got caught with hookers.

That was the era of Reagan and the Moral Majority. Before that it was Nixon, ushering in an image of conservatives as racist, National-Guard-as-lethal-private-army Fun Police that lasted decades. The Leftists were the ones building caricatures out of that (see: the rich white evildoer behind the desk in every '80s comedy you can think of) while promoting a general attitude of "Leave people alone as long as they aren't hurting anyone." The enemy was ever-present but easy enough to dismiss. Despite grass roots efforts and organizations of Religious Right nutters on school boards and in political offices, we still had Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press, and thanks to Larry Flynt, a legal right to parody handed down by SCOTUS.

There was this idea that the enemy would forever and always be over on the Right. Except when we handed the keys of power to the Left, we learned a harsh lesson that on BOTH ends of the spectrum, there exists a a desire to control and rewrite the Matrix. Thus, despite a government full of Republicans in 2019, we're having our culture flipped over and turned inside out.

It's much harder to tell who the 'enemy' is. They aren't on CBN shouting and drawing attention to themselves. They get inside the system and slowly turn the knobs, until you wake up one day and everything around you has changed overnight. Unless you adapt, YOU are the enemy. Conform or get called a Nazi in clickbait articles. Virtue signal or prepare to be hunted, alt-right bigot. This new breed mocks free speech ("Freeze peach, lol") and expression. Words are violence.

And the funny thing is, they still insist the enemy is the '80s comedy villain behind the desk.

And on topic, Spoony is an idiot for railing against his bogeyman from 30+ years ago, unaware of what he himself has become.

Another SJW trait of Spoony's; the inability to see shades of gray in anything. Robert E. Lee was a complex man- a man who grew up in a world where slavery was normal. Lee pretty much viewed slaves as subhumans and thought Law, Order and a functioning society were more valuable than Equality. Which were pretty much the views of most Plantation Owners of that time. (Lee also did do some dickish things like having slaves whipped and breaking up families, which were among his greater moral failings.)

Lee did think that Emancipation should happen at some point in history, (as he viewed slavery as a moral evil.) But he was a bit optimistic in thinking that it would happen gradually, without any kind of political force or violence. Lee was an utter conformist, taking no dramatic stands on pretty much anything, but trying to uphold the status quo. He might not even have been as good a general as his legends make him out to be, as many of his battle tactics were aggressive and ended in heavy casualties for his side.

When victory came, Lee tried his best to make the surrender go as smoothly as possible. He even (ironically, as it would turn out,) opposed the erection of war monuments, since he thought it would prevent the healing of the country. It wasn't really Lee's fault that his dignity and stoic demeanor made him a romantic figure for defeated Southerners, who put him on a pedestal and portrayed him as a paragon of honor. Lee was one of those public figures who was neither better nor worse than anyone else in his station. Spoony, of course, would have been right to point out Lee's failings and how badly the guy has been overhyped. But instead, Spoony decides to paint him as A LITERAL NAZEE, and anyone trying to examine the man and point out the complexity of his character as NAZEE ENABLERS!!!! Which is funny, because I don't recall hearing about General Lee marching black people into gas chambers or having them mowed down with machine gun fire. Once again, the word "Nazi" is being used as a black brush to wipe away any trace of nuance, and thus, destroying any chance of looking deeply into the motivations and mechanisms behind slavery, and learning what could have been done to end it a lot sooner (and a lot less bloodily) than it could have been ended.
You're putting too much thought into Spoony's ramblings. Spoony isn't fit to be spat on by Robert E. Lee. Spoony literally has no fucking idea what he's talking about.

It's like when some people complain that those who make money on the stock market aren't working at all, they just push a button and magically have millions of dollars. And yet for some reason these complainers won't go and push this magic button themselves. I wonder if Spoony has ranted about that at some point.
Maybe he is basing this astute observation off of watching "Casino"

Can he even justify his alcoholism any more? I don't think he has much else to cut back on given how many bizarre people buy his games for him. I wonder how his GF's income links in to this unsustainable lifestyle, assuming she's still employed.

Which will surprise nobody, but it's interesting to learn precisely how broke he is given his apparent immunity to his mortgage and other major financial obligations.
I love how even though he is in the state he is in, he takes the time to take shots at his political enemies.

That imaginary high ground he has made for himself never ceases to amaze me.

I love how the fedoras are acting like Trump being in massive debt in the 90s is news.
He literally wrote a book about it in 1997 called The Art of the Comeback.
He literally talks about it in the intro to the Apprentice, one of the most popular shows at the time.
But somehow the fact that Trump went from success to massive debt to massive success is breaking news to them.
Just shows how little they actually pay attention, and solidifies the idea that their hatred is just based on emotional nonsense.

Yeah Trump made mistakes and went into debt and then he dug himself out of the hole.

Take a page out of Trump’s book Spoony. You might learn something.

Which I really hate about the Current Year.

Its like people want to reduce every historical conflict to good guys and bad guys.

Might as well just call them Autobots and Decepticons at that point.
Not even, there are plenty of continuities where the Decepticons started out as a group with legitimate grievances while the Autobots were the corrupt assholes causing the problems the Decepticons were complaining about.

Current political Zeitgeist status: less complex than cartoons made to sell toys.

I can't fathom how you could look at your political opponent and fail to see the other side's motivation and goals. Let's take someone well balanced and grounded, Vlad the Impaler. He gained notoriety from brutal executions, which he used as a deterrent against Muslim encroachment - he was overall weaker, so he had to maximize his impact.
