Infowars host Owen Shroyer delivered a final message on social media before turning himself into prison.

The journalist received a 60-day prison sentence relating to January 6th at the U.S. Capitol.

Shroyer received the sentence despite neither entering the U.S. Capitol or facing accusations of committing violence on the U.S. Capitol grounds.

As 100 Percent Fed Up noted, federal prosecutors accused Shroyer of ‘speech crimes.’

From 100 Percent Fed Up:

Politico senior legal affairs reporter Kyle Cheney shared a court document saying “Shroyer spread election disinformation paired with violent rhetoric to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of viewers.”

“And, on January 6, 2021, Shroyer took to a megaphone before leading a crowd to the Capitol,” the document read.

“He continued marching around to the top of the east steps chanting ‘1776!,’ where rioters would eventually violently breach the Capitol and its police line and halt the transfer of presidential power. Shroyer did not step foot inside the Capitol, he did not need to; many of those who listened to him did instead,” the document continued.

“Shroyer helped create January 6. The government respectfully requests that this Court sentence him to 120 days of incarceration, 12 months of supervised release, 60 hours of community service, and $500 in restitution,” the document read.

Reporter Savanah Hernandez accurately noted Shroyer was sentenced for his inalienable right to free speech.

“Owen Shroyer has just been sentenced to two months in prison for his free speech surrounding January 6th. We are all Owen Shroyer now and the DOJ is sending a message to all of us. If you use your first amendment to push back against the tyrants in power they will arrest and imprison you,” Hernandez wrote.

“Owen Shroyer, a journalist, has now been sentenced to two months in federal prison for the crime of his speech. He never called for violence, but because he expressed ideas that made people mad, he’s responsible for, as they put it ‘stoking the flames,’” Infowars Harrison H. Smith wrote.

Infowars noted:

War Room host Owen Shroyer has been sentenced to 60 in prison for his role in January 6, according to reports.

“I was not a part of any larger plan for illegal activity or violence that day,” said Shroyer Tuesday morning to the D.C. court according to NBC News.


U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly sentenced Shroyer. Last week, he sent Proud Boys founder Enrique Tarrio to federal prison for a record-setting term of 22 years.

“If you are seeing this video, then I am officially incarcerated,” Shroyer said.

“I am actually behind there. Right there in federal prison,” he added.

“I promise I’m never going to give up telling the truth,” Shroyer said.

“I’m going to be there for 60 days and in those 60 days I’m going to find a way to better myself. I’m going to find a way to come out stronger. I’m going to come out wiser. I’m going to come out bolder. I’m going to come out more focused,” Shroyer explained.


According to the Post Millennial, Shroyer was placed in solitary confinement inside the prison.

“We have confirmed through a source within FCI Oakdale prison that Owen is doing well and remains in good spirits. With that said, unfortunately he is being held in solitary confinement until Monday 10/30 per the facility’s (absurd/pathetic) covid intake protocol,” Owen Shroyer’s X account posted.

The Post Millennial reports:

Shortly before being forced to turn himself in, Shroyer posted a video message that he encouraged his viewers to share far and wide.

“That year 1776 is extremely important not just because it was the founding year of our country, but the US government is arguing that it’s illegal for me to say 1776 in Washington, DC,” he explained.

“Don’t believe me? Check the US government sentencing memo for yourself. They said that me chanting ‘1776’ in Washington, DC is worthy of 60 days in prison.”

Shroyer’s 60-day prison sentence was ordered by US District Judge Timothy Kelly, who had also handed down Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio’s 22-year prison sentence.

Prosecutors had attempted to get Shroyer locked up for double the amount of time he ultimately received. They claimed he had “spread election disinformation paired with violent rhetoric” to people prior to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
