Attack on Free Speech? Infowars – Owen Shroyer – Jailed For Reporting During Jan. 6

A host on Infowar, Owen Shroyer, has just been sentenced to 60 days in jail for his involvement in the Jan. 6 protests.

Here’s the kicker.

He didn’t even enter the U.S. Capitol.

He was only on the stairs of the building.

It’s insane the lengths Democrats will go to put these freedom fighters behind bars.

More from NBC News:

WASHINGTON — A host of the far-right media outlet InfoWars was sentenced Tuesday to 60 days in prison for his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Owen Shroyer is one of only a handful of Jan. 6 participants charged with a crime despite neither entering the Capitol building nor being accused of committing violence or destruction on Capitol grounds. Prosecutors charged Shroyer because he had previously signed a deferred prosecution agreement after interrupting a congressional hearing in 2019 and had agreed as part of that case not to utter “loud, threatening, or abusive language, or to engage in any disorderly or disruptive conduct, at any place upon the United States Capitol Grounds.”

About 1,100 defendants have been charged in connection with the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol attack, and more than 600 have been sentenced, including more than 370 to periods of incarceration.

Democrats will do anything to try and vilify the people who participated in the Jan. 6.

The Associated Press has more on the story:

Shroyer said in an affidavit that he accompanied Jones and his security detail to Capitol grounds on Jan. 6.

“I walked with Mr. Jones up several steps and stood near him as he addressed the crowd from a bullhorn urging them to leave the area and behave peacefully,” Shroyer said.

Phone records showed that leaders of the far-right Proud Boys extremist group were in contact with Jones and Shroyer before and during the Jan. 6 riot, according to the House committee that investigated the attack. Enrique Tarrio, who was the Proud Boys’ national chairman, texted with Jones three times and Shroyer five times during the riot, and Proud Boys chapter leader Ethan Nordean exchanged 23 text messages with Shroyer in the two days before Jan. 6, the committee said.

Tarrio, Nordean and two other Proud Boys leaders were convicted in May of seditious conspiracy charges for what prosecutors said was a violent plot to stop the transfer of power from Trump to Biden after the 2020 election.

Shroyer is one of two Infowars employees arrested on Capitol riot charges. Samuel Montoya, who worked as a video editor for Jones’ website, was sentenced in April to four months of home detention. Montoya entered the Capitol and captured footage of a police officer fatally shooting a rioter, Ashli Babbitt.

Also on Friday, a Colorado man who marched to the Capitol with members of the Proud Boys and was one of the first rioters to enter the building was sentenced to four years in prison for attacking police officers with a chemical spray as they tried to hold off the mob of Trump supporters.

Robert Gieswein, of Woodland Park, Colorado, was wearing a helmet, a flak jacket and goggles and was carrying a baseball bat when he stormed the Capitol. Gieswein, then 24, marched to the building from the Washington Monument with the Proud Boys but wasn’t a member of the group.

The DOJ is going to destroy any credibility they have with these sham trials and indictments.

The future of this country is not looking favorable.

I hope for the best, but I am expecting the worst.
