Infowars host Owen Shroyer issued a final message to Infowars viewers before turning turned himself into an Oakdale federal prison to serve a 60-day sentence for speech crimes.
Shroyer hosts his show, “The War Room,” on Banned.Video and fills in Infowars founder Alex Jones on “The Alex Jones Show” during weekdays.
Now, Shroyer will be locked in solitary confinement.
Shroyer will remain in “quarantine” for the next six days in adherence with the Federal Correctional Institution Oakdale’s strict COVID provisions.
In his last broadcast before being stripped searched, and detained in isolation, Owen Shroyer in his final message assured viewers he would “find a way to” become “better” while incarcerated.
“Ladies and gentlemen, if you are seeing this video, then I am officially incarcerated, actually behind there, right there in federal prison. So, if you are watching this, I am in jail, but I wanted to get one last final message,” he said.
“Now, first of all, I can’t express the gratitude, appreciation and thanks from my heart for all the support in this, really, five years of political persecution that I’ve gone through. So, from all my heart, thank you for your continued support, and I promise I’m never going to give up telling the truth. I’m never going to give up fighting for you,” Shoryer added.
“And I want to say this… I am going to be there for 60 days and in those 60 days I’m going to find a way to better myself; going to find a way to come out stronger; I am going to come out wiser.”
“I am going to come out bolder. I’m going to come out more focused,” he added.
“So, for 60 days while I am in there, I am going to try to improve myself and become a better person.”
“And so, I offer you this challenge. For the 60 days that I’m away, the next time that you see my face and hear my voice, I challenge you to become a better person,” he continued.
“Use these 60 days, while I’m away, to improve yourself.”
“If I can improve myself in there, then you can certainly improve yourself out here…My final message to you, my loving audience. God bless. Godspeed.”
Last month, Judge Timothy Kelly sentenced Shroyer to 60 days in prison for his actions during the Capitol riot.
However, Shroyer never entered the Capitol on January 6.
But prosecutors contend Shroyer “helped create” the riot with his so-called rhetoric.
“The Democrats are posing as communists, but we know what they really are: They’re just tyrants, they’re tyrants,” Shroyer said into a megaphone, according to the government’s sentencing memo.
“And so today, on January 6, we declare death to tyranny! Death to tyrants!”
Prosecutors said Shroyer championed Americans who protested the stolen election and “spread election disinformation paired with violent rhetoric to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of viewers” of InfoWars.
Prosecutors initially sought 120 days in prison for Shroyer.
In 2019, Shroyer was arrested after derailing the House impeachment proceedings against President Trump by confronting then-Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler.
