3. But what of all the conservative efforts to get liberal pedagogues off the staff of

colleges and univeristies?

If even it is her conservative views that kept her from getting a position there? And how does this work anyway. Is there a law that says who should and should not be hired? Is there a law that the most qualified must be hired even if that person, despite his/her own perceptions of his/her own qualifications, is not the best fit?

There are many cases where who gets the job is not made based only on paper qualifications. Personality interactions probably count a huge amount on hiring, otherwise, why have an in person interview at all.

And if she wins this case, does that mean that conservative leaning institutions will have to hire flaming pinko liberals?

If it's sauce for the goose, it's sauce for the gander.
