Alex Jones Bashes Flavor Flav Shortly After Having Professor Griff On Show

Public Enemy rapper Professor Griff has been on the Alex Jones show but, shortly after his appearance not too long ago, Alex Jones started picking on Flavor Flav, Public Enemy “hype man” during his on-air ranting. Since then he has expressed, on-air, that he would like to get Professor Griff back on the show. Lacking a strong background in politics within the music industry, this mystifies. There may be a simple explanation other than a series of blatant gaffs.

”WHY MAINSTREEM HIP-HOP IS RACIST” Article

Glancing around the interwebs with a few quick search strings fished in this article posted in January of 2013: http://smagicblog.wordpress.com/2013/01/page/2/ To avoid getting too involved in the rest of the content a “cntrl-F” or “find on page” function can be used with the search string “flavor flav.” A possible clue to explain Alex Jones’ comments on his show can be found near the bottom of the SMAGIC article.

From Abovementioned Article

If there’s one group that would oppose the man’s version of hip hop, it’s Public Enemy, especially after their “hype man” Flavor Flav sold himself out to several VH1 reality TV shows (most notably in Flavor of Love), thereby selling out everything Public Enemy stood for, and becoming a stereotype just for fame.

”Sell-out” Explanation

If the SMAGIC article is giving an accurate assessment, one possible explanation for Alex Jones’ trashing of Flavor Flav could simply be that he was aware that the “Hype Man” was believed to be a sell-out by some for his VH1 reality show activities. Perhaps this made “the Flavor” an easy target for Mr. Jones. Certainly this is one a testable theory.

If it was Alex Jones’ view that Flav was a sell-out, it might have given Jones an excuse to berate him, if mildly on the radio. There likely will not be any lawsuits because in the United States any such case requires that a “reckless disregard for the truth” be effectively proven. Jones didn’t cross this line so saying he “picked on” within the bounds of lawful free speech would be a fair description though a transcript of Alex Jones’ comments is not readily available.

Essentially, Flavor Flav was used as an example of who not to be like. A reoccurring topic on the Alex Jones show is about selling out to immorality, depravity, and the establishment. He has pointed out from time to time that porn “actors” used to get paid quite a bit but, at least for a while, so many people had it in their heads that selling-out in that way was how to make money that it ceased to be for some time. Jones recently mentioned that the pay for porn stars has improved recently but he quickly changed the subject to go onto another topic. Exactly how or why he has this information is not known at this time and everyone might better off not knowing.

There are a lot of other types of selling-out that Alex Jones covers. Warning about the dangers of selling out to criminality in general is a reoccurring theme on the show. Selling-out is seen as contemptuous so if Jones is also of the mind that the Flavor was guilty of “selling out everything Public Enemy stood for” it would definitely explain his contemptuous commentary.

Sometimes simply speculating what may be and let information bubble to the surface on some future date if they will. The “Sell-out” explanation does seem to be a viable model for the seemingly ironic handling of Flavor Flav by Alex Jones who has Professor Griff of the same iconic Hip-hop group. There may be more theories but, of course, only one truth which may be revealed with time or not.

Gaff Explanation

Alex Jones’ radio show is three to four hours every day plus a couple more hours on Sunday. In addition to his regular radio show he does special reports, produces films, and helps with the Nightly News. Anyone who talks, on air, for several hours every day for years on is bound to have some stupid things come out of their mouth and Alex Jones is certainly no exception.

In his earlier years he claimed that Saudi Arabians controlled Hollywood. In more recent times he said that they, and the Chinese government, have influence over Hollywood but it doesn’t erase the videos floating around on the web of him making himself sound like an ass with a comment to the effect that the Saudi’s own the movie industry.

Alex Jones is also known for pushing a lot of fear down people’s throats over the Y2K scare. The western world had only recently become dependent on computer technology but the year 2000 came and went with little incident. This is one of those mistakes that can follow one around for quite a while.

Exactly why people who do hit pieces on Alex Jones don’t fall back on things he said years ago is uncertain. There are plenty of embarrassing moments to choose from. There would have to be: the mouth can only open and close so many times without something inaccurate or even reprehensible popping out. It is amazing Jones has said as little stupid things as he has.

Because of the gaff phenomenon, where one figuratively puts one’s foot into one’s mouth, it is possible Alex Jones simply made a questionable choice of people to characterize as a poor role model. This theory, though plausible, is problematic however. Alex Jones may have actually have been a fan of Public Enemy in his youth and likely had plenty of time to speak with Professor Griff off air so it seems unlikely that Jones would choose to single out Flavor Flav arbitrarily.

The Reality of the Situation

The real inside scoop may reflect either, both, or even a completely different scenario. Regardless, anyone not satisfied simply speculating briefly and then moving on, would have to dig a bit deeper to figure out the real story. It may be adequate knowing there are the above two mentioned likely possibilities to clear out any uncomfortable feelings of cognitive dissonance after hearing Alex Jones poke fun at one former member of Public Enemy after interviewing another.
