San Francisco’s Kyle Chapman calls himself “Based Stickman” — an imposing-looking “protector of freedom” who’s been confronting and even doing battle with leftists amid their often violent demonstrations against Republican President Donald Trump.
Not content to keep quiet and stay out of harm’s way, Chapman got under the left-wingers’ collective skin Monday when he was being filmed parading around Berkeley, Calif., wearing a baseball helmet and holding an American flag attached to — what else? — a large stick. It was all to promote a free-speech rally scheduled for Saturday.
“Just wanted to show you guys there is nothing to fear by coming out here and exercising our First Amendment rights,” Chapman, 41, said during his stroll, Berkeleyside reported. “Most of the inhabitants of this city are a bunch of f***ing cowards that couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag.”
Some Berkeley folks didn’t take kindly to Chapman’s presence, the outlet said, and before long at least six angry men were following him.
At one point one of them marched right up to Chapman and began yelling at him and challenging him to fight, Berkeleyside reported.
