The Music of Freedom Corner: Only the Hits


Freedom Corner has freed no one. The nightly pro-January 6th vigil outside the DC Jail has, however, prompted an outpouring of art mocking them – gifs, memes, AI creations and, most hilariously, music videos.

I give you, Freedom Corner: Only the Hits.

Get your ass up and hurrah….

Something about chuds dancing to old school rap is instantly hilarious. MAGA women gyrating to the obscene lyrics of Ice Cube’s “You Can Do It” as created by Spinnaker had me laughing all day.

I posted the above for Peter Navarro Sentencing Day. Trump supporters got big mad that I was celebrating the sentencing of a “good man” to four months in prison for Contempt of Congress. “Soon you will be in jail,” they vowed.

So, I shared another Spinnaker creation, another delicious combination of chuds and rap. It was from last weekend’s reunion of the 1776 Restoration Movement. They expected thousands to attend; they got a dozen.

Biketifa is a genius. He’s produced so much art (including posters and framed art) that it’s hard to know where to start. So here’s a video featuring Anarchy Princess (famous for trolling Peter Navarro), Biketifa and myself up to various anti-fascist shenanigans on the streets of DC.

Here’s another jamming tune from last summer during the Chalktifa Wars, when Biketifa triggered the chuds of Freedom Corner with messages in chalk outside the Federal Courthouse in DC. “Chalk can’t hurt you,” I told them. But maybe it can.

It’s more than just mockery. Freedom Corner films themselves doing everything (just like 1776RM did, the chuds having learned nothing). They like to call other people “paid protesters” but Biketifa put together a video, from their own clips, demonstrating that they’re all being paid by a Hitler apologist:

No post on the music videos of Freedom Corner would be complete without a Baldy Banks submission. This is my favorite, featuring an off-screen Anarchy Princess paired with the music of Joey Valence & Brae:

In case you think this all too mean, a quick reminder. Freedom Corner is led by Ashli Babbitt’s violent and insane mom, who has repeatedly called for the hanging of Nancy Pelosi. Members of this squalid little cult outside the DC Jail have attacked counterprotestors, stalked women to the Metro and provide a home for J6 insurrectionists, Nazis and white racists.

Spinnaker provides a nice summary in the pitch-perfect parody, “Chudfellas.”

It’s a weird little cult that chants “Ashli Babbitt” every night while demanding the release of the J6 “hostages” from the “DC gulag.” The MAGA movement is sort of like an adult day camp, where Boomers can revisit their youth while letting out their worst impulses.

In other words, it’s like a grown-up version of the Peanuts.

Would you livestream yourself driving down the road in a snowstorm while reading and responding to chats on your iPhone?

Probably not. But this kind of distracted driving is routine among the always-online chuds (despite one of them wrecking his car). The meandering is captured in this work by the Electrical College:

Biketifa has to let it be in his multimedia spectacular, A Chud is a Chud is a Chud, featuring the iconic chorus, “GloryBeef, GloryBeef, GloryBeef.”

And don’t pass up on one of the earlier Freedom Corner videos, The Chud (What Does the Chud Say?) which has some killer lyrics.

Finally, there is the iconic video of Anarchy Princess squaring off against fascists from her first days against 1776RM to her viral encounter with Peter Navarro. She is unstoppable.
