I don't find it clean, I just find it deprived (starving even).
You might not like it, whatever, but my problem is when people (mainly fundamentalist classicists) write stupid and untrue stuff about modernism like that their architects didn't care about their designs, or they were lazy, or they were doing it only for function.

I don't think they were being lazy and I believe some modernist architects genuinely believed in modernism.

There is a lot of anger amongst classicists because of the abuse modernists have inflicted upon us. The oppression, destruction, etc. leaves a very bitter taste in our mouths.

What, from like 40 years ago? I see nothing but comments bashing modernists and the classicists are far louder and abusive towards modernists in the past years despite never hearing anything bad back about classical architecture. In London, for example, nothing but modernist architecture has been demolished in the past years and you still complain of classical building destruction
Also, what oppression? How can architecture have anything to do with oppression? Unless you think modernism is solely about social housing blocks in which case you couldn't be more wrong.
