University Changing Rules for Inclusive Excellence Award After Conservative Professor Wins
“We are working to revise the nomination and review process to be sure we take a comprehensive approach in selecting the recipients to ensure their bodies of work represent our diversity and inclusion values”
This is like a metaphor for what Democrats are trying to do to our national elections.

University revises Inclusive Excellence Award after conservative professor earns 2021 honor
An Ohio university is changing the way it selects recipients of its Inclusive Excellence Award after a conservative professor won.
“We are working to revise the nomination and review process to be sure we take a comprehensive approach in selecting the recipients to ensure their bodies of work represent our diversity and inclusion values,” said University of Toledo vice president of diversity and inclusion, Willie McKether, in a statement announcing the award.
The change in how the honor is awarded comes after law professor Lee Strang won the award after receiving an “overwhelming number of faculty nominations.”
Strang was nominated in part because he “enjoys and respects a good healthy debate” in his classroom, one nominator wrote. The nominator made note of Strang’s “conservative point of view,” which is “a minority in academia and a benefit to legal debate.”
“Professor Strang always welcomes students to present and defend their perspectives while respectfully challenging them to consider points of view contrary to their starting point,” one nominator wrote. “I believe the academy at its best is a place where truth claims and viewpoints can contend with one another based on their own merits and scholars from all life experiences have the opportunity to wrestle with the arguments of others as well as their own assumptions.”

This is the Democrat Way: change the rules until the “right people” win.
I remember some years back, some lefty group ran an online contest for people to submit videos “exposing” the one-percenters whose “dark money” did most to influence elections. The best video, hands down, was one exposing Tom Steyer, billionaire Democrat contributor (this was before Bloomberg got into the game). Votes for the Steyer video were absolutely swamping all other contenders. Suddenly, the contest rules were changed — and I mean, literally, blatantly, changed — the winner was no longer the popular vote, a specially-selected committee was formed to choose the winner. And, of course, the Steyer video did not win.
Voter suppression — just fine, when Democrats do it.
I’d return the award … now that it’s been tainted by the university … I wouldn’t want it.
If I told you the details of my own little story, I’d be revealing too much.
Suffice it to say that our own institution’s newsletter editor will not post the photos of three different prestigious award-winners (who received awards within the same day or week) because “we try to feature only one or two people a week.”
It looks our three they can’t even be posted in consecutive weeks because they are all non-URM–and there are no other URM winners to post along with them. So, we will have to wait until there is a URM winner of something or other before the earlier winners can be celebrated.
So phony and unnatural. Trying to make things seem like something that they are not.
And the goal posts get shifted … again. It’s so blatant it’s *_almost_* funny.
In other words, we won’t ALLOW a conservative to ever win this award again . We only want LIBERALS to win ! How nauseating.
“We are working to revise the nomination and review process to be sure” a conservative never ever wins again. And they wonder why no one takes them seriously.
