Kyle Chapman, better known as “Based Stick Man,” was arrested at Saturday’s showdown between pro-Donald Trump free speech activists and the violent anarchists on the left, hours after he was assaulted and pepper sprayed.
Chapman, 41, rose to prominence following a pro-Trump march in Berkeley last month, where he was arrested after hitting a black-clad anarchist with a stick.

A fund for his legal defense quickly surpassed $80,000 on the crowdfunding platform WeSearchr.
Now, Chapman has found himself in trouble once again, after speaking at the “Patriot’s Day” rally, which has been a day of violent clashes between the two groups. During his speech, he was assaulted and pepper sprayed by those who oppose the freedom to hold differing ideas.
“Guys, breaking news, Based Stick Man has just been arrested. The cops were not here when we were getting boulders thrown at us, when we were getting flash bombs thrown at us, but now they’re coming to arrest Trump supporters,” Tim Treadstone, better known as Baked Alaska, said in his livestream following the incident.
The event was meant to be a positive celebration of free speech, featuring speakers such as Lauren Southern, Chapman, Treadstone and many others.
Unfortunately, anti-free speech activists had other plans.

Shortly after his speech, Chapman was arrested, though the reason why remains unclear at this time.
“He was walking down the street, doing nothing, and they grabbed him and threw him in a van,” Treadstone told Big League Politics.
This is Chapman’s second arrest in less than a week. He was also taken into custody on Monday, after getting into a fight with a skate boarder who had struck him, as well as a man who had brandished a large knife.
“Officers responded and found Chapman had gotten into an altercation with an unidentified man who struck him with a skateboard, and another male … who allegedly brandished him with a large knife,” BPD Sgt. Andrew Frankel told BerkeleySide.
Chapman and the man who allegedly had the knife, 33-year-old Emmanuel Hall of Berkeley, were booked, cited, and released shortly after.
Mumford & Sons Guitarist Swarmed by Fanatic Leftists After Praising Andy Ngo’s Book
Musicians are terrified to speak out against fanatic leftism.
Folk rock musician Winston Marshall was swarmed by furious leftists after congratulating journalist Andy Ngo on the publication of his new book, “Unmasked.” Ngo’s book breaks down Antifa’s model of attacking democracy and political violence in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere, shining light on the street terror group’s extremism.
Marshall, the lead guitarist of Mumford & Sons, hailed Ngo as a “brave man” in a since-deleted tweet.
Antifa supporters were quick to attack the musician as a “Nazi,” unleashing the hate-filled vitriol commonly associated with the intolerant movement. Marshall’s Twitter feed is largely filled with support for Hong Kong demonstrators, a far cry from what leftists might expect from a “fascist.” The English guitar player’s band is known for songs such as “I Will Wait” and “Hopeless Wanderer.”

Others pointed to the faux social media outrage as mere evidence of the Left’s intolerance and fanaticism.
Congratulations to @MrWinMarshall for showing us, once again, that the people who claim to be "tolerant", "kind" and "open-minded" are the most illiberal, hateful and intolerant around. I'll be going to as many of his concerts as possible.

Ngo has been forced to flee the United States under a constant barrage of Antifa threats in recent months, with the street terror group determined to silence Ngo’s reporting on consistent property damage, anarcho-tyranny, and violent crime in Portland and elsewhere.
Unfortunately, Marshall has since deleted the tweet. It’s considered impossible to get anywhere in the mainstream music industry if you haven’t cravenly bowed before the false gods of ultraliberalism and identity leftism. While Marshall took a risk in even saluting Ngo’s work in the first place, he unfortunately appears to have backed down, to a degree, a sad lamentation of the state of mainstream entertainment and corporate culture.
