Michael Mann a conservative?

Are we eating our own?

The French newspaper Le Monde recently profiled hokey stick purveyor Michael Mann, writing:

Lively and talkative, friendly, passionate about his research topic, the scientist Michael Mann is the most hated conservative in America… [Emphasis added]

But take a look at Mann’s political contributions for 2008-2010. They hardly amount to evidence of being a conservative.

No contributions could be found from Mann for the period 1990-2006.

  1. It is all relative.
    We’re talking about Le Monde, here.
    In their eyes, Lenin was a conservative.
    The human has not been born yet who stands to the left of Le Monde.

  2. I cannot begin to imagine what La Monde thinks is radical if Michael Mann is considered to be the most hated conservative. No way is Michael Mann a conservative. The watermelon activist is no conservative.

  3. Correction. The text says: “Lively and talkative, friendly, passionate about his research topic, Michael Mann is the scientist most hated by conservative America.”

    (In French: “Vif et volubile, sympathique, passionné par son thème de recherche, Michael Mann est le scientifique le plus haï de l’Amérique conservatrice.”)

  4. First and foremost Mann is an academic. It follows that he has about a 90% chance of being a Democrat and an 80% chance of being a liberal. That leave little room for being a Republican or Independent and virtually no chance of being a true conservative. He obviously believes in big government and the associated control and intrusion in our lives.
