Letter to Antioch: 20 Questions

By John "Birdman" Bryant


September 21, 1998

To: Bob Devine, Interim President Antioch College Yellow Springs OH 45387

Dear Bob:

I'm sure you've heard of the game 20 Questions. Well, I've created a new game, called 20 Questions For Liberals, which I give below. The purpose of the game is to see whether you can go thru and ask yourself all the questions and still remain a liberal. My belief is that a rational person can't, but then who says that liberals are rational?

Let me be frank with you, Bob. The liberalism that has taken hold of Antioch makes me sick. And it makes me sick because it is so irrational, so stupid, so detached from the facts of the world that it is hard for me to imagine that anyone with an IQ above the single-digit range could ever give it the least credibility.

So I want to challenge you, Bob. I want to challenge you in the name of the college mission -- as stated in the Antiochian, p 3 -- to oppose "racism, oppression, intolerance and bigotry". In particular, I outline in the 20 Questions numerous ways in which liberalism is racist, how it oppresses whites, how intolerant it is of legitimate white needs, and how bigoted it is in dealing with whites and legitimate white aspirations; and I challenge you to oppose this liberal racism, liberal oppression, liberal intolerance and liberal bigotry by publishing this letter and the 20 Questions in the next Antiochian and in the campus's Antioch Record. As a liberal, Bob, I know how interested you are in promoting "diversity", so let's have some of the only kind of diversity that really makes a difference -- diversity of ideas.

Of course, I realize that you, as a liberal, are unlikely to be tolerant (Note that word, Bob!) of any challenge to the liberal paradigm, even if that challenge uses the very standards put forth by liberalism to judge liberalism itself. I will, however, offer you a choice: If you publish this letter and the 20 Questions below in the Antiochian, I'll agree not to submit this material for my regular column in the Nationalist Times. That way, we can keep the dispute in-house, rather than outhouse.

How's that for a stinker, Bob?

PS: I'm sending copies of this letter to various individuals mentioned in the Antiochian so that, in the likely case that you don't publish this letter, all these folks will have seen for themselves in real time the complete hypocrisy and corruption which liberalism represents.


20 Questions for Liberals

(1) Why -- at least in the case of whites -- do liberals denounce as "racism" the normal human desire to live, work and be with one's own kind, and the pride which one normally takes in his racial heritage and group identity?

(2) Why do liberals think it is desirable and even praiseworthy for minorities to preserve their ethnic identities, customs and gene pool, but not whites?

(3) Why do liberals denounce "racism" when the victims are black, but applaud it when the victims are white (as in the case of affirmative action)?

(4) Why do liberals think it is not racist for blacks to have their own college dormitories, their own graduation ceremonies, their own cheerleaders, their own unions, their own year-end celebrations, their own congressional caucus, and virtually anything else of their own they want, but not whites?

(5) Why do liberals make a federal case out of preserving the spotted owl, the snail darter and other obscure and unimportant species, but -- by encouraging such things as Third-world immigration and the subsidizing of black reproduction via welfare -- seem uninterested in preserving the one species that has made more contributions to human civilization than any other, namely, the white race?

(6) How can liberals be opposed to "genocide" and yet rejoice, as our liberal president recently did, in the fact that demographic changes induced by liberal policies will reduce the white population to a minority in America within 50 years?

(7) How can liberals rejoice in "diversity" when it is precisely "diverse" populations which have been an unending source of racial and ethnic conflict, as we are seeing today in every place from the Balkans and the Middle East to our own "integrated" cities, schools and workplaces?

(8) Why did liberals create a national holiday for Martin Luther King -- a notorious womanizer, plagiarist and communist -- when there is no national holiday for any other single man, including such icons (and paragons of virtue) as Jefferson and Washington?

(9) Why do liberals insist that blacks and whites are "equal" when there has never been a black civilization worthy of the name (ancient Egypt was not a black civilization), and that the civilizations which whites constructed in Africa have all essentially collapsed since the whites' departure, South Africa being just the latest example?

(10) Why do liberals insist that blacks and whites are "equal" when the black crime rate is nine times (900%) that of whites?

(11) Why do liberals insist that blacks and whites are "equal" when each year there are 20,000 whites raped by blacks, but less than 100 blacks raped by whites?

(12) How can liberals maintain that blacks and whites are "equal" when the average black IQ (85) is substantially below that of the average white IQ (100)?

(13) Why do liberals whine about white abuse of blacks when there were fewer than 6000 blacks lynched in the 100 years following the Civil War, but more whites than that are now killed by blacks every single year?

(14) How can liberals continually invoke "racism" as the explanation for black failure when others groups which experienced at least as much discrimination as blacks -- the Irish, Jews and Japanese, for example -- all achieved economic success within a generation or two?

(15) Why do liberals insist on spending more and more money on the public schools when there is no correlation between educational achievement and per-pupil spending, but considerable correlation between educational achievement and racial makeup? (For example, the highest spending and lowest achievement may be found in the black DC schools, while the lowest spending and highest achievement is found in mostly-white midwestern states.)

(16) Why do liberals cry "racism" and "sexism" when a company's management doesn't contain the prescribed racial and sexual quotas, but have no complaints about such things as the fact that 80% of the players in the National Basketball Association are black?

(17) How can liberals pretend to be in favor of "sexual freedom" when they have supported "sexual harassment" legislation which makes virtually anything sexual in the workplace to be a federal crime?

(18) Why are liberals in love with the abnormal, the ugly, the failures and the other dregs of society (eg, pedophiles, the handicapped, blacks), while despising the normal, the healthy, the beautiful and the successful (eg, whites)?

(19) Why do liberals denounce "hate", yet shower the most virulent forms of hatred on whites, and especially white heterosexual males?

(20) How can liberals continue to pursue the policies which they have pursued for the last half-century -- from communism/socialism to school integration -- in view of the fact that all of those policies have been egregious failures?
