EXCLUSIVE: Infowars Sensation Owen Shroyer: We Knew We Would Be at This Place in History – The Left Is Trying to Destroy This Country (VIDEO)
Alex Jones and InfoWars have been hit the hardest by the the tech industry’s aggressive efforts against conservative voices. The tech giants used the excuse of “misinformation,” to ban Infowars from Apple, Google, Facebook, Youtube and Spotify in September.
While the tech giants continue to severely restrict the reach of Jones and Infowars, and wiped out content of hundreds of other conservative outlets to American subscribers as part of their fight against “fake news,” the Trump administration is idly standing by. InfoWars host Owen Shroyer lamented the Republican Party’s lack of concern in an interview with The Gateway Pundit.
InfoWars and alternative media platforms helped Trump win the White House in 2016 by combating the mainstream media’s propaganda and lies, Owens argued.
“Lets really get to the core of this – Who got Trump elected? It was InfoWars. It was Alex Jones. It was Michael Savage. It was Ann Coulter. That was the biggest audience that put Trump in office, that was with Trump from day one, that already had huge audiences of millions of people built up. So, that’s what got Trump in office. Now, who’s getting censored more than anybody? InfoWars. Alex Jones,” Shroyer said. “But, why isn’t anything done. It really hurts.”
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump appeared on an InfoWars broadcast with Alex Jones and thanked Jones for his support.
Yet, in light of the InfoWars’ ban from the social media platforms, Trump campaign’s digital advertising and data guru and 2020 re-election campaign manager, Brad Parscale, maintains that he doesn’t know who Jones is and has never heard of InfoWars , Shroyer explained.
“Brad Parscale, here’s a guy who is apparently the ‘social media guru.’ Here’s a guy who writes an exclusive for Brietbart the same day I talked to him, and Brad Parscale talked to me and he said he’s never heard of Alex Jones and said he had no idea who InfoWars is. But, he does know social media is censoring conservatives. But he’s never heard of Alex Jones?”
“This is the ‘genius who got Trump in office with social media’ and he’s never heard of InfoWars and Alex Jones – when Trump went on Alex Jones’ show. He has to know that InfoWars was massively responsible for Trump’s election. But he’s never heard of us or Alex Jones? And then he writes an exclusive for Brietbart talking about all the social media censorship of conservatives and InfoWars doesn’t even get mentioned.”
Shroyer blasted Parscale for snubbing InfoWars and its millions of supporters.
“This is a philosophical struggle that I have to go through every night. Are they giving us the middle finger intentionally? Do they really not know who we are. Do they really just take a dump on us, even though we put them in power,” he said. “We get no credit, we get stabbed in the neck, we bleed out and die, as the martyr for social media censorship. And then we don’t get any love, we don’t’ get any respect, we don’t get anybody showing us any admiration or anything – I don’t want that. It’s just when you do so much for an administration, and then they act like you don’t even exist, that hurts my heart.”
If Trump administration officials are not going to take action against the tech industry for infringing on First Amendment rights, Shroyer argued, they should be forthright instead of paying “lip service” to conservatives.
“I really don’t understand why they don’t do anything about this. They continue to pay it lip service, they continue to point out that they know it’s there. But they’ve done nothing. Maybe that’s their strategy, don’t do anything because you know you’re going to be called an authoritarian,” he said. “Or that’s just your free speech stance, that they can do all this. But say that. Don’t sit there and say you know its going on, and then act like we don’t exist when we’ve been erased off of social media altogether.”
Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have all all but acted as the IT department for the Democrat Party for the last 10 years.
Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google’s parent company, Alphabet, is a well-known contributor to the Democrat Party. As is Mark Zuckerberg, one of the founders of Facebook.
In January, Project Veritas’ undercover operatives filmed Twitter employees admitting that they shadowban conservatives. Shadowbanning means that a person can still post on Twitter, but no one sees it. The mainstream media did not cover this story.
In July, The Gateway Pundit released a study which examined several top conservative websites and discovered that the publishers had lost an average of 93% of their Facebook traffic.
As a part of that fight against “fake news,” Google announced in its search engine results, it would start “fact checking.” Their version of fact checking means that conservative sites have “disclaimers” or reviews. For example, The Gateway Pundit is noted as being ” a far-right fake news website.” InfoWars is noted as being “a far-right American conspiracy theory and fake news website.” The Washington Post carries no such notice. Neither does The New York Times, even though both papers are infamously liberal.
In April 2017, according to Net Market Share, Google had 77.43 percent of the global search engine market share. The closest competitor was Baidu, China’s version of Google, at 8.43%.
YouTube dominates the video market. According to Statista.com, in November 2016, YouTube had 78.8% of the multimedia market. Netflix came in next at 8% and the closest real alternative to YouTube, Vimeo, came in at .8% of the market.
Yet, the Trump Department of Justice has made no attempt to break up the tech giants. No anti-trust investigations. No litigation.
Trump’s accomplishments and victories won’t sustain unless leftists are held accountable for disregarding the rule of law, Owen continued.

“It’s kind of like a waiting game that we are going through here,” he said. “If Hillary Clinton doesn’t end up in jail by the time Trump is out of office, if people don’t get arrested for all the crimes we know got committed by our government, whether it be the illegal spying by Obama – now we come to find out that multiple women that accused Kavanaugh of rape lied about it and they are now admitting this to the intel committees.
“These are serious crimes that people are trying to are trying to destroy our country with. If we are not going to do anything about this, then how much victory can really be sustained over the course of time? But again, its just kind of a waiting game. We just have to wait.”
In August, YouTube terminated Jones’s channel, which had more than 2.4 million subscribers and billions of views on its videos, for repeatedly violating its policies, including its prohibition on “hate speech.” Spotify cited its own prohibition on hate speech as the reason for removing Jones’ podcast. Facebook removed four pages belonging to Jones, including one with nearly 1.7 million followers in August, for violating its policies by “glorifying violence” and “using dehumanizing language.”
Jones is able to financially fortify Infowars’ production with the Infowars Store and plans on expanding “in the space of contraction,” Shroyer explained.
“We are lucky because Alex Jones has built InfoWars and Alex saw the future and he knew we would be at this point in history. He built InfoWarsStore.com, which is how we fund ours. We don’t have advertisers. We don’t have these big ad buys. Its all through our store there. We are independent. And we have InfoWars.com/show, which is where we can house all of our live broadcasts and still get millions of traffickers a day because that’s just the traffic that’s organically been built into our website. We are lucky that Alex has built such a platform.
“That’s what our audience loves about us is that we do sell good stuff and they can go to the website and support us, but its harder and harder to do.
They sue us. They have frivolous lawsuits that they file against us. And then erasing us off social media – really what that does is it kind of curtails our ability to expand. The problem is, the viewership continues to go up –our audience gets more loyal, but it is harder to reach a new audience when they ban you from social media, that’s the toughest thing.”
