The site posted a video featuring Rex Jones, who is seen in his father’s seat during a monologue blasting Hogg for his part in the public campaign pushing for stricter gun laws in the United States.
Hogg survived the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, which left 17 people dead.
A former student, Nikolas Cruz, was arrested for allegedly carrying out the massacre.
In the wake of the tragedy, Hogg and his fellow students have led a nationwide campaign demanding tougher gun laws.
The campaign, however, has met with stiff criticism and resistance from conservatives who warn against taking action that infringes on their Second Amendment rights.
‘Hogg, you claim that the establishment is shaking in its boots in fear of you,’ Rex Jones says in the video.
‘No, they love you. They love gun control. They’ve wanted this for years.’
The Infowars video is interspersed with clips of Democratic politicians speaking of the need to enact laws against assault weapons.
‘It is admitted they want to disarm the American people just as they have done with so many corrupt regimes in the past,’ Rex Jones said.
He then named 20th-century dictators who he claims were allowed to commit mass murder due to strict gun control laws.
‘Hitler, Stalin, Mao, North Korea – do you think those corrupt leaders allowed their citizens to have guns?
‘Do you think that the Jews were able to protect themselves when Hitler put them in concentration camps?
‘No, they were disarmed. And that’s why they were enslaved.’
Rex Jones blasted Hogg as a ‘child human shield’ by the ‘mainstream media’ so that ‘you can go out and make outrageous statements without anyone being allowed to rebut you.’
‘George Soros and the groups funding your anti-gun march are a clear and present danger to this country,’ Rex Jones said.
Jones said guns were not to blame for the massacre at Parkland, but Sheriff Scott Israel ‘who failed to act.’
Jones accused Hogg of ‘making apologies for the sheriff’ and the armed deputy who stood outside of the school as the massacre was taking place.
‘You are submitting to tyranny,’ Jones said to Hogg.
‘You are begging to have the rights that our forefathers fought for stripped away.’
‘I don’t need talking points or a little teleprompter behind my CNN interview screen to get my point across.’
He then challenges Hogg to a debate.
‘Name a time, name the place, name the venue. I will do it.’
