InfoWars Daily Show Host Owen Shroyer Sentenced to Two Months in Prison

According to the PBS article, InfoWars daily show host Owen Shroyer has been sentenced to two months in prison for his involvement in the U.S. Capitol riot, as prosecutors argued he played a role in creating it through violent rhetoric and false election fraud claims. Shroyer, known for hosting “The War Room With Owen Shroyer,” didn’t enter the Capitol but led a march to it, rallying rioters with chants. He pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor of illegally entering a restricted area, which can carry up to a one-year sentence.

Prosecutors claimed that Shroyer’s online platform had already influenced his followers, making his physical presence unnecessary. Judge Timothy Kelly disagreed with Shroyer’s claim that he wasn’t inciting violence, emphasizing that joining a mob that disrupted the peaceful transfer of power was unpatriotic. Shroyer’s attorney plans to appeal the sentence. Leading up to the Capitol riot, Shroyer, a daily show host, used his show to amplify unfounded claims of voter fraud and warned of disruptions to the certification vote.

Prosecutors highlighted an InfoWars video promoting “big D.C. marches” featuring Shroyer, the daily show host, in front of the Capitol. The day before the riot, he declared, “Everybody knows this election was stolen.”
