Although the faculty of Ohio State University banned it as “hate literature” and “homophobic tripe,” David Kupelian’s controversial bestseller “The Marketing of Evil” has caught on with the rest of America, holding down the top spot in’s “Current Events” bestseller list for the past week.

Subtitled “How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom,” Kupelian’s book has been at the center of a major controversy at OSU’s Mansfield campus. Recently, the entire faculty voted to investigate librarian Scott Savage on allegations of “sexual harassment” and complaints that he made the campus “unsafe” and “threatening” – all for suggesting the school’s freshman class read Kupelian’s popular but controversial book.

Savage also suggested three other conservative best-sellers – The Professors” by David Horowitz, “Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis” by Bat Ye’or, and “It Takes a Family” by Sen. Rick Santorum. But it was Kupelian’s book that caused several professors to file a formal complaint and launch an investigation of Savage for alleged sexual harassment, calling Kupelian “anti-gay” and the book “hate literature.”

Earlier this week, the university – under legal pressure from the Alliance Defense Fund, and in the full glare of national media publicity – relented and dropped the charges against the Christian librarian.

Released in August, “The Marketing of Evil” has become one of the nation’s most talked-about books, widely praised by Dr. Laura, David Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, D. James Kennedy and many others and garnering over 100 five-star reader reviews on Although some 1-star Amazon reviews attack Kupelian in the same vein as the OSU professors, most readers sound a very different message, as reflected in the following reviews:

  • “Opening this book is like turning on the Sun. … Mr. David Kupelian has written a remarkable book that reveals how the American public has been taken down the slippery slope of moral relativism.”

  • “I finished “The Marketing of Evil” over a month ago. It absolutely changed my life.”

  • “Prepare to see your world with new eyes!”

  • “Read this book and you will start seeing the lies more clearly and you will then be on the path to truth. It will be very painful for some to admit the truth. You will have to say to yourself, as I did, “Oh my God. All those precious years wasted living by these lies.” … In the long run you will feel a tremendous sense of gratitude for having read this book.”

  • “This book has put a powerful voice to many things that truth-loving people in America have felt in their spirits for a long, long time. … I like my medicine straight and my truth even straighter, and this book delivers, with no apologies or flinching. … I for one am forever changed.”

  • “This was a great book!! So truthful. Should be required reading. Shows what is behind much of the assault on traditional values, and how we have morally slipped so far in America.”

  • “The way Kupelian writes is phenomenal, his footnotes are extensively accurate, and his research superb. … Kupelian takes the reader, sometimes by the hand, and shows them point by point why we need to remember our heritage as Americans, and see what has happened since traditional values have been thrown out the window, to further a free-for-all society that has decayed from the inside out. … Give this book to everyone you know, you’ll thank me.”

  • “The Marketing of Evil” irritates only those who hate the light of day, goodness, family and the Truth. I recommend this book for anyone who is looking for an explanation of the simple question: ‘How could we (Western Civilization) have sunk to such depraved depths?'”

  • “The socialists in this country no doubt cannot stand that this book even exists, however, thinking people will find the book an eye opener!”

  • “Kupelian, with a calm, steady and patient hand, exposes the left as master marketeers selling an agenda of ever-increasing licentiousness and depravity as a designer substitute for classical American ordered liberty. … Kupelian pulls back the curtain and exposes the wizards pulling the levers of fraud and deceit that has masqueraded as news for the last 40+ years.”

  • “David Kupelian has authored a masterpiece that belongs in every home in America next to the Family Bible.”

  • “This book may offend those with a secular, humanistic, left-wing outlook but I feel that it is required reading for our time. Indeed, it is one of the best books that I have read for some time.”
