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.
Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds
Weren’t they peaceful protestors?
Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.
Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”
Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”
“We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover,” demanded Governor Walz. “We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.”
The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.
In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
