Owen Shroyer is the Infowars host and supporter of Roger Stone’s who was confronted outside of Stone’s sentencing by Don Folden of DC Black Tours on February 20.
Inside of the courtroom, Stone, who was found guilty of obstruction of proceedings, lying to congress and witness intimidation at the U.S. District Court in Washington D.C, was sentenced to 40 months in prison, alongside two years of probation and a $20,000 fine. In addition to Shroyer, Stone was backed today by his wife, Nydia Stone.
During the sentencing phase, Shroyer, who used to co-host a show with Stone on Infowars, screamed for his friend to be released. Eventually, Shroyer was confronted by Folden. Folden accused the activist of being unable to do anything other than dividing the country with hate. Shroyer accused Folden of merely trying to promote his tour business, DC-BlackTours.com.
Folden said that Shroyer spreads “lies,” to which Shroyer responded, “Lies about Donald Trump have divided America, lies about Roger Stone have divided America.” Shroyer continued by saying that former FBI Director James Comey should be in prison and that there was a different set of rules for Hillary Clinton.
On the day of Stone’s sentencing, Shroyer tweeted that Stone was the victim of a “corrupted judicial system politically target Trump associates.” Shroyer is the host of “War Room” on Infowars.
In a November 2019 broadcast of his show, Shroyer said, via Media Matters for America, “Roger Stone’s fate is our fate. So if Roger Stone gets thrown in jail and dies in jail, that’s the rest of our fate. We’re all going to die from these left-wing politicos, whether that’s in jail or from a bullet [in] the head.”
Shroyer added that he was not calling for violence but added, “When you start to use the government and these bureaucracies against us, and you take away our freedom of speech, and you take away our right to a fair trial, and you take away our right to bear arms, what are we supposed to do? We’re not going to be your damn slaves.”
