The amount of disinformation about January 6th being pushed out by the left has been increasing. They believe their fantasy idea of mass incarceration for their political opponents is coming into their grasp. It is the ultimate power and domination play of the left, to torture, capture, and imprison their political foes. The use of propaganda to help them carry out their fantasies appears to make the drama seem all the more fun for them.
“Leftists are the biggest threat to our freedom, literally rooting for us to be political prisoners,” journalist and reporter Owen Shroyer told me in reaction to the following set of Seth Abramson tweets.
The following tweets show a series of questionable thought patterns to me about radical far-left Seth Abramson, so I wanted to highlight them as an example of what journalists face from the cancel culture crowd.
Understand that many top alternative reporters face the same vicious propaganda and smear campaign attempts of the leftist media, of which Abramson is a large contributing member.
What struck me as odd is that Abramson appears to be drawing the moral equivalent between the sacred ground of the US Capitol and the sacredness of a random $5 Black Lives Matter flag. That should concern American citizens about the direction of the media.
“The left celebrates when the American flag is burned, but they get upset when a Black Lives Matter Flag is burned. That is what interested me in this story the most, the double standards. Remember the left wants to defund the police but celebrate when they see the police pushing us around, another double standard,” Shroyer told me.
Shroyer’s body of work reveals his skills at exposing those double standards between the left and the right. In fact, on the video, before the flag burning, a man says to Owen, “I love it when you talk to libs. I learn a lot from you,” to which Owen, known for his quick wit and deep understanding of politics said, “Yea but I can’t do that anymore.”
Another example of how journalists and pundits on the right carry a burden to censor themselves out of fear of retribution, which the left does not carry.
In Abramson’s tweets, he deconstructs a video in his posts, making several strange comments where he is clearly attempting to frame a liberty-loving American man, Shroyer, as a diabolical criminal.
Abramson blows through a fascinating story, in a 4-hour long video, about the man making the video to focus on a few minutes with Shroyer.
According to Shroyer Abramson’s narrative is false.
“First of all, I was there to cover the event as a reporter for Info Wars because I believe in free speech, and it was Taylor Hanson of Babies Lives Matter, who organized the event in protest to the arrest of Enrico Tarrio, claiming he did the same thing. I had nothing to do with organizing it at all. I hesitated to cover it, but I did because I believe in free speech,” Shroyer told me.
Tarrio, who is obviously a friend of Shroyer’s, is the leader of the group The Proud Boys and had been arrested earlier that day and then released. Tarrio is well regarded by most people who known him, from every evidence.
I even spoke to elderly Chinese ladies at one of the DC rallies earlier in December, who told me that they felt comfortable attending the marches in the area for President Trump because the Proud Boys would keep them safe.
It was an astounding moment of revelation that most of the media will refuse to address, how important Tarrio had become to the average American in Washington DC, who felt very unsafe in the area. So Tarrio is not seen as a villain to most Trump supporters who know him. Shroyer’s friendship affinity for Tarrio is not a sign of a crime.
In the video, Shroyer when he gets ready to chronicle the event clearly hands his phone to someone and asks them to video the event while he sets the stage about what is happening. This in no way shows that he has organized or is leading the event.
Shroyer then lends commentary to a woman who had gone to find the flag and paid $5.00 for the flag, clearly with the idea of burning it because she was prepared with a liquid accelerant.
Abramson wants to call that organizing. That is not organizing anything. It is called adding commentary to the event he is covering.
Remember that the left never has to hesitate to burn anything, riot, loot, or threaten violence. They can, at will, organize protests against the entire country without anyone talking about criminal charges.
So Shroyer had to hesitate to do his job, to report on events. No leftist journalist has that same burden.
Using the media against a journalist, like Abramson is doing to Shroyer, is perfect persecution. In the world where Abramson dwells, media is a perfect companion to Soviet show trials. Look at this perfect frame-up:
(PS) This burning was organized by Owen Shroyer of InfoWars—top lieutenant of Alex Jones, who Trump personally asked to lead the march on the Capitol. Also present? Tim Gionet ("Baked Alaska"), who has since been arrested. And Matt Colligan, who you may know from this old photo: pic.twitter.com/PdYvnvIsdT

In the first two tweets, Abramson triangulates, by introducing more names, Roger Stone, Rudy Giuliani, Joe Oltmann, George Papadopoulos, to cast aspersions on them when they were not even at the event.
In his second post, Abramson shows his readers an inflammatory photo from a years old and separate event, the Charlottesville rally. That was another event where the media just made up lies until the lies became criminal narratives against their political opponents.
A social media poster is known as “Baked Alaska” is the anti-police force throughout the video Abramson posted and appears to be leading a group of outraged people.
Clearly, the target is also Alex Jones, a pioneer in alternative media with one of the largest media organizations on the internet, making him a clear enemy of the left.
“Alex was not even there that night and he was not at the event and so he couldn’t shout anything about the police,” Shroyer told me.
Baked Alaska made the video that Abramson is using to frame Shroyer. Baked Alaska appears to be making a video after being away from his audience for some period of time-based on his commentary, where he says that people may have thought he had been arrested, but he wasn’t.
But did you notice what Abramson slips in there?
“This burning was organized by Owen Shroyer of InfoWars—top lieutenant of Alex Jones, who Trump personally asked to lead the march on the Capitol.”
I reached out to Abramson to ask him to clarify several things in his posts. He did not respond to me.
In the violent parts of the video, Shroyer is not seen. There is no evidence that Shroyer, the focus of Abramson’s rant, was with Baked Alaska after he left the Williard Hotel.
Abramson shows a complete lack of respect for American civil liberties called “due process rights” by framing Shroyer, and not even asking him to comment.
WHAT ARE DUE PROCESS RIGHTS- YOU MIGHT ASK?
“Due process rights are basically the guarantee that a person has the right to the fair application of the law before they can be imprisoned, executed, or have their property seized. This concept is responsible for all the procedures that guarantee a fair trial no matter who you are.”
Due Process is civil liberties. And that is why what the press does with media show trials should be taken seriously. Writers like Abramson have smeared and harassed other journalists, pundits, and lawmakers with impunity, completely ignoring the due process rights of other journalists and even of the President of the United States.
In his third tweet, Abramson assumes the people in the crowd are Trump supporters; he doesn’t know that because he wasn’t there to interview anyone or check people’s voting records. The people shouting about the police in fact get into numerous fights with Trump supporters.
Abramson refers to a “Trump war room” but won’t give details of that means exactly, and it is unclear who the people are who are chanting at the police. In the video are numerous people in Trump gear saying they would defend the police.
When Baked Alaska is walking through town, screaming about the police with a large group of other people, playing the familiar song, “We are not going to take it,” which was also played at the US Capitol on the 6th while President Trump spoke at the ellipse. Yet Abramson says nothing at all about those details, as if he were just focused on Shroyer.
(PS4) Watch for yourself how quickly this goes downhill. I mean wow—in about four minutes. It gets scary.
And this isn't January 6—this is January 5, a few hundred yards from where Trump was going to speak the next day.
Team Trump knew what it was doing. https://t.co/uIYCu5NsxX

Watch the entire video. It is clear that Shroyer is a target of the leftist media because of the power of Info Wars. If this type of target journalism is consumed and supported by the American public, and the left is allowed to knock out journalists who dare bring them other stories, it very well might be them who is targeted next time.
Our power is in what we consume or ignore. Just like Alex Jones has been telling us for over 20 years: There is a war on for your mind. Choose wisely.
