The following is a prime example of how my idea of an expert and Jones' idea of an expert couldn't possibly be any different.
If discussing a medical issue like vaccination or Swine Flu, I would talk to licensed health professionals who have dealt extensively with that issue and are able to offer concrete information about it to the public.
Jones talks to doctors who have been stripped of their licenses, people who have no formal medical training at all, and doctors who attribute the spread of disease to Lucifer.
If discussing the Cyberbullying Act and hate speech legislation, I would talk to an ACLU rep, a human rights advocate specializing in free speech, or maybe an attorney.
Jones talks to Ted Pike.
The Reverend Pike is the head of the National Prayer Network, a Christian organization that provides two things: God's word, and reasons why a lot of Jews suck.
Like virtually all anti-Semites, Rev. Pike indignantly and vociferously insists that he is not anti-Semitic. He simply devotes most of his time to pointing out how mean, greedy, and amoral a lot of Jewish people are. He also likes to point out that they killed Jesus, and how anyone who says otherwise is just covering up the truthiness and persecuting nice people like Mel Gibson.
Rev. Pike's National Prayer Network website is bursting with information about the "threat of evil Jewish leadership" posed by hate speech laws, as well as charming cartoons about black men crucifying straight white men.
Many of his articles decry the persecution of the "well-researched movement" made up of "Holocaust reductionists" like Fredrik Toben.
Oh, and the word of God? That part of the website is still under construction. You'll have to go elsewhere for that. Maybe, I dunno, the Bible?
I'd provide a link to the NPN site to make life easier for you, but then I would have to bathe in kerosene to strip away the yuck.
The National Prayer Network was founded by Pike's father, Claude, in the late '70s to campaign for a national day of prayer. Today, Rev. Pike is on the staff of the American Free Press. In 2006 he co-authored an article on the Jewish threat, the other authors being National Vanguard staffers (NV was dissolved a year later, when its founder was convicted of child porn offenses). His books and videos are very popular with other neo-Nazi/white supremacist organizations, as well.
In other words, Rev. Pike is very much a part of the anti-Semitic culture in America, whether he's actually anti-Semitic or not. The national day of prayer fell by the wayside a long time ago - a single page of the NPN website is currently devoted to it.
Truthtellers groups are organized along the lines of Campus Crusade, but rather than being devoted to Christian college life, their mandate is to "fight" pro-gay professors and staff. Rev. Pike bragged about the success of this program in his 2002 book Shaking Campus Liberalism: How Christian Students Defied the Pro-Gay Faculty...and Won!.
This is the kind of demented little assmonkey Jones turns to when he wants to educate the public about the perils of hate-speech legislation. Are you still going to tell me that Alex Jones is a "Zionist shill"?
