You are nuts. The author is not left wing, he's a normal American.

Arxiv is a pre-print server, you moron. You put a paper there before publication in a journal or conference so that it can get a DOI and you can get credit for it. It's there in case other researchers are working on the same problem and you are held up in publication.
