American Patriot, who also goes by the name Kyle Chapman, was walking around Berkeley recently with an American flag to promote a free speech rally. A group of probably local liberals who don’t care for free speech when they disagree with it, got in his face.
Here’s what happened next.
According to video he posted online, Chapman marched through Berkeley carrying a large flag Monday to promote a “free speech” rally planned Saturday at Civic Center Park.
“Just wanted to show you guys there is nothing to fear by coming out here and exercising our First Amendment rights,” he said, as he walked. “Most of the inhabitants of this city are a bunch of fucking cowards that couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag.”
“You gonna pull out a knife, too?” one man is heard asking Chapman.
“I don’t wanna see y’all around here again,” another tells Chapman as the gang closes in on him in the middle of Berkeley’s Civic Center Park.
The aggressor, donning sunglasses, should’ve thought twice about that — because Chapman turned around, sized up the gang up brewing around him and took a fast swing at guy out in front, who subsequently hit the ground.
Here’s what Chapman said on Facebook about it all.
We had a little run-in with local thugs while shooting our April 15th Freedom Rally promo video at Civic Center park. They tried to surround us while we were leaving…Nothing a little chin check couldn’t fix!
They called the cops like pussies. I spent most of the night in jail, racked up another charge. My boys were waiting for me when I was released. It was a great day!
This is another example of left-wing thugs trying to intimidate and threaten real Americans when we try to exercise our First Amendment rights. We CANNOT let that fly
According to police, officers were called to Civic Center Park at about 7:20 p.m. Monday for a report of a fight.
“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,” said BPD Sgt. Andrew Frankel. Chapman and the man who reportedly had the knife, identified as 33-year-old Emmanuel Hall of Berkeley, were detained. Both signed “citizen’s arrest” forms on each other, and were released after receiving citations at the Berkeley Jail.
