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.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.
Like today's journalists (except they show up for their job) Spoony gets his info from Twitter.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.
Maybe he is basing this astute observation off of watching "Casino"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.
I love how even though he is in the state he is in, he takes the time to take shots at his political enemies.
I love how the fedoras are acting like Trump being in massive debt in the 90s is news.
Yeah Trump made mistakes and went into debt and then he dug himself out of the hole.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.
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.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.
Current political Zeitgeist status: less complex than cartoons made to sell toys.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.
So, he's a real world version of little slugger?Trump is Noah Antwiler's invention to let him escape taking responsibility for doing this all to himself, to deny responsibility to do anything to fix it, and to delude himself into thinking that everything is going to be all right.
Remember, Noah is a galaxy brain atheist that thinks all Christian denominations are Catholic because he has a shakier grasp on history than an Assassin's Creed game.Spoony's rampant anti-theism is one of the more entertaining things about him because of how bull-headed he is about it while demonstrating all the knowledge of a 14 year old euphoric atheist on Reddit.
The only things he really knows about religion is what's fed to him through popular culture, and even then he takes the most extreme reading into it.
I mean, before he was shown his own grave, he asked the spirit to show him a death that people cared about and was shown Bob Cratchit's family mourning Tiny Tim which filled Scrooge with remorse, with the implication is that Scrooge himself caused Tiny Tim to die. Yes, the reveal that he also died makes him change his ways, but it's because Tiny Tim's death was paired with his that he resolves to change his ways so that Tiny Tim could live too.
Not to mention, a cursory glance at Wikipedia will tell you that Dickens disliked Catholicism. I don't know where he gets the idea that the story somehow represents the Catholic Church.
