Tyranny and Bullying Accusations Gone Wild!

This has got to be one of the most blatant examples of uncalled-for persecution that I have ever seen. Please go to the following link to read about The nutty professors.

You will also read about how Evelyn B. Freeman, Dean and Director of the Ohio State University at Mansfield had to step in for damage control when certain gay professors falsely accused the librarian of harassment.

This is just another stark example of why "hate crimes" laws would be counter-productive and dangerous. There would be way to many opportunitites for abuse of such "laws"! In fact, this incident will most likely backfire on the gay professor who made the false accusations. If this gay man was angry and thought he experienced harassment simply because this librarian recommended the book, "The Marketing of Evil" as a must read for college freshman, wait until he faces the counter-suit charges! He will experience the harassment of going through a lawsuit because of his own ignorance. His tyranny and bullying against this librarian is becoming public knowledge through the media now and he can no longer hide behind the shield of radical liberalism that exists amongst his fellow professors anymore.

"But, warns the librarian's attorney, who calls this one of the most "astonishing" and "shameful" instances of campus persecution he's ever seen, the damage to his client's reputation and career has been done. They've already filed a complaint against three professors for false accusations of harassment and are discussing a more "substantial" response – including possible litigation – to "deter any future tyranny or bullying of others."

In fact, it has already backfired!

"One consequence of the case, surely unintended by the professors condemning Kupelian's book as "homophobic tripe" and "hate literature," is that "The Marketing of Evil" has shot up the nation's bestsellers lists, where it currently is ranked No. 1 on's "Current Events" bestseller chart. "

"The reason for the massive interest in Kupelian's book? The following letter, one of many sent in response to the column about the case by Rebecca Hagelin, tells the story."

"I hope you can forward the information to the faculty of OSU-M that I, for one, had not yet heard of the book, "The Marketing of Evil." But because of their hysteria and hypocritical intolerance, I have decided that it is something I should definitely read. I intend to buy a copy, and perhaps an extra to pass. In spite of themselves, these would-be thought controllers are serving as a beacon of light, showing the way to valuable literature!"

The story spreads. Read Threatening literature?

Get this! The University is warning the librarian that "retaliation in any form is prohibited"

So, let us see what we have here. The article link above reveals the following additional information about this bizarre false accusation and how the university is trying to backpedal on it:

"However, in a letter dated April 6 – but mysteriously not postmarked until April 18, and received by Savage yesterday – the university informed Scott Savage that the faculty had overstepped their bounds:

Dear Mr. Savage:
On March 16, 2006, Gary Kennedy, Associate Professor and Faculty President, filed an allegation of discrimination/harassment complaint on behalf of Norman Jones, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of English and James Buckley, Ph.D., Associate Professor of English, all of whom are faculty members of The Ohio State University Mansfield regional campus, against you.

Based on the statements, interviews and documentary evidence provided into this inquiry, it is determined there is no finding of discrimination/harassment on your part.

However well intentioned the actions of Professors Jones and Buckley, the fact remains their claims of discrimination and/or harassment based on your suggestion of a book does not meet established university policy criteria for filing such a claim."

If the complaint violated "established university policy criteria," why did the entire faculty vote in favor of the claim?

"I'd say it's for the same reason about a third of the faculty completely abstained from voting," commented Kupelian. "Those nine faculty members knew the charges of sexual harassment against this poor librarian were ridiculous and that they couldn't vote yes. But they also didn't want to be accused by the rest of the faculty of being homophobes and bigots. So they didn't vote. The entire faculty – those who voted yes, and those who abstained from voting – wanted to be certain they were not tarred as haters and Neanderthals."

"Those nine abstentions are just one more proof that the OSU Mansfield campus is a place of fear and intimidation, not one of openness, robust inquiry and free speech as the faculty members imagine," Kupelian added.

"What boggles my mind," said David French, lead attorney for the Alliance Defense Fund, which has taken up Savage's case, "is that nobody voted against accusing a librarian of sexual harassment for recommending a book."

After informing Savage the allegations were unfounded, the letter suggested a new round of anti-discrimination and harassment training was in order.

"What colleges normally do in this situation," explained French, "is to first do what is necessary to defuse the immediate crisis. Then they go into the 're-education process,' where they bring in the experts to discuss how hurtful and painful it is when people discuss Judeo-Christian morality on campus."

Indeed, among the letter's "Recommendations" was this:

Promote frank, open and respectful discussion among faculty and library staff, in particular and among all staff in general. Dr. Jones had indicated that maybe he could be a liaison person to spearhead this effort.

[Ain't that a hoot? One of the gay guys who started this whole circus volunteers to lead the so-called "frank, open discussion" [read: INDOCTRINATION and REPROGRAMMING of this "hurtful librarians mind"]!

Ironically, Jones – who had just falsely accused Savage of sexual harassment, and strongly attacked Kupelian's book – was being suggested as the point man responsible for leading the faculty in "open and respectful discussion" of differences.


More ominously, the letter to Savage – signed by T. Glenn Hill of the university's Office of Human Resources – appears to end with a warning to the party who had been falsely accused:

… keep in mind that retaliation in any form is prohibited, per university, state and federal law.
But as WorldNetDaily reported, attorney French says the damage to his client's reputation and career has been done. In fact, Savage has already filed a complaint against the three professors for false accusations of harassment, and he is discussing with ADF a more "substantial" response – including possible litigation.

"Ohio State University allowed its resources to be used in a campaign of slander and defamation," said French, adding Savage "wants to do something substantial to deter any future tyranny or bullying of others."

Since WorldNetDaily broke the story Saturday, it has been reported by Sean Hannity, MSNBC, Fox News, the New York Post, Human Events, and dozens of bloggers and talk show hosts.

[Looks like Ohio State isn't getting out of this one scot free! heh heh...pun intended!]

Released in August, "The Marketing of Evil" has been widely praised by Dr. Laura, David Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, D. James Kennedy and many others and garnered over 100 five-star reader reviews on

As a direct consequence of being "banned" as "hate literature" and "homophobic tripe" by the OSU faculty, "The Marketing of Evil" has become one of the hottest-selling books in the country, topping's "Current Events" bestseller chart for the past three days."


So, let me get this straight...the gay professors can ruin the librarian's reputation and possibly be the reason for damaging his career by falsely accusing him of harassment, but the librarian is not allowed any recompence for such an attack upon his character? Hmmmm.... I truly wonder what would have been the outcome if the tables were turned? Would the gay professors have had their day in court? Looks like "hate crimes" do not apply to all, only the homosexual agenda.

As David Kupelian stated in his response, "Mansfield campus is a place of fear and intimidation." Sure sounds like tyranny and bullying to me!!

On second thought, perhaps we should thank these professors for giving more attention to this important book, The Marketing of Evil, after all! That is certainly one good thing that has resulted out of the stupidity of the gay professors claims.

P.S. I wonder if David Kupelian's book would be shared in the "frank, open discussion" spearheaded by the gay professor Jones? Probably NOT!
