Recommendation of Conservative Book Leads to Charge of Sexual Harassment

A librarian at Ohio State University at Mansfield has been accused of sexual harassment for suggesting that conservative books be considered for freshman reading. He recommended the conservative books after seeing liberal authors being suggested by professors. The librarian's book suggestion at the heart of the controversy is The Marketing of Evil: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom by David Kupelian. Two professors charged the librarian with harassment based on sexual orientation, claiming that gay professors felt unsafe because of the librarian’ssuggestingg the book for the freshman reading assignment.

The liberal professors at the Mansfield campus have shown, once again, how intolerant the Left has become. Universities no longer are forums for open inquiry into controversial topics but have become closed-minded institutions that demand intellectual conformity. I hope, without much basis, that liberal professors, who dominate the universities, will see this as a problem and will work to change it.
