Is Based Stick Man Not So Based?
Kyle Chapman, AKA “Based Stick Man,” in a now deleted post, made the following statement last night on Facebook denouncing “racism” within the Trump movement.
While obviously there should be no calls for violence, and the wisdom of utilizing racial epithets is arguably bad optics, Chapman seems to believe that 1776 American identity was one devoid of race. To support his call for a race-blind form of American nationalism, Chapman posted a Wikipedia article that cites Jewish scholar Hans Kohn who claimed
[T]he United States government institutionalized a civic nationalism based on legal and rational concepts of citizenship, and based on a common language and cultural traditions, rather than ethnic nationalism. The founders of the United States founded the country upon classical liberal individualist principles rather than ethnic nationalist principles.
While Kohn is correct that the founders established America upon classical liberal individualist principles, these principles were not universally applied to non-Europeans. Many of the founders explicitly wrote about their feelings towards other races, as well as their plans for the future of American society, as Jared Taylor has thoroughly documented. For example, John Jay, one of the major contributors of The Federalist Papers and the first Chief Justice of the United States stated in the second paper that America should be composed of
a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs.
Others like, James Madison, the fourth President of the United States who is hailed as the “Father of the Constitution” for his role in drafting the antiquated document in addition to the Bill of Rights said about blacks.
To be consistent with existing and probably unalterable prejudices in the U.S. freed blacks ought to be permanently removed beyond the region occupied by or allotted to a White population.
Even “the Great Emancipator” Abraham Lincoln himself, during the Lincoln-Douglas debates, asserted
I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will for ever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.
So why would the “based” stick man cuck on race, making an empirically false claim and alienating a significant proportion of his supporters? Much has recently been revealed about Chapman’s personal life after he was doxxed by antifa in an article by the anarchist website It’s Going Down. Though allegedly having read Arthur Kemp’s fashy two-volume history of the White race, March of the Titans, Chapman has a child with a woman of Asian descent, and it would make sense that advocating civic nationalism is about as far as he can go without alienating her or his progeny.
This poses a strange scenario for those in the Alt-Right, who just several days ago stood toe-to-toe against antifa at Trump rallies across the country. While I agree that it is disheartening to hear the man who ascended to a meme call for the rejection of White interests, we must nevertheless continue to move forward with our uneasy alliance in order to make progress on altering social policy. Ending sanctuary cities, birthright citizenship, and installing a national E-Verify system are just a handful of policies that we can work together with civic nationalists on, and if successful, would put us closer to securing a future for our people.
Kyle Chapman may be wrong about the Founder’s intentions, but he is undoubtedly a brave man who is willing to stand up against bullies for what he believes. He is still facing multiple criminal charges for defending people who rallied to support their president and were subsequently attacked by degenerate thugs for doing so. Next month, Chapman will be speaking along with Lauren Southern and others at The Freedom Rally in Berkeley in open defiance of the antifa goons who attacked him and others.

I disagree with much of what he has to say, but Chapman is a fellow traveler who shares a common enemy. There is no greater threat to human progress than censorship of public dialogue. Cultural Marxism thrives on an ignorant and demoralized populace and seeks to squash all dissenting narratives lest their intellectual fraudulence become exposed. This being the case, I as well as others will be at Berkeley on April 15th to stand in support and in protection of those who seek to participate in public discourse.
