Rolling Stones Song “Under My Thumb” Declared to Be a Thought Crime

Bad enough that the Rolling Stones played in Israel despite Pink Floyd’s righteous boycott on behalf of Palestinian terrorists. Now we learn that they are sexists too. A militant moonbat named Lynn Stuart Parramore (no relation to treasonous moonbat luminary Lynne Stuart, so far as I know) screams on AlterNet that she was in Trader Joe’s and was forced to listen to the 1966 Stones hit “Under My Thumb” — right there in ultra-liberal New York City, despite the lyrics being a thought crime:

As I listened, I thought about how the song plays in the wake of Elliot Rodger’s killing spree, fueled, as the killer explained in a lengthy manifesto, by his rage against women and desire to control them.

We’ve been wringing our hands, asking how young men can become so hostile and eager to dominate to women. Well, isn’t it because our culture feeds them the message at every turn, even in the most mundane settings? What does it mean that degradation of half the population is considered appropriate background noise to everyday life?

“Under My Thumb” is classic rock’s answer to “The Taming of the Shrew.” It tells the tale of a guy who gets the upper hand over his domineering girlfriend.

At least Trader Joe’s didn’t play “Brown Sugar,” which according to Ms. Stuart Parramore “celebrates slave owners raping black women.”

Nonetheless, she was enraged.

What kinds of messages do we think are OK today in 2014? Why should I have to hear about a guy comparing his girlfriend to a dog while I’m buying vegetables?

So Ms. Stuart Parramore launched a jihad to get the song banned from the Muzak playlist Trader Joe’s plays in its stores. She was given the polite runaround, which is what businesses do with kooks who expect the entire universe to submit to their irrational whims. This made her even angrier.

Sorry, Ms. Stuart Parramore. Trader Joe’s isn’t under your thumb.

Unfortunately, we live in a generation dominated by Ms. Stuart Parramores. That’s why what’s left of our culture is turning to tasteless lukewarm mush.

Some day soon “Under My Thumb” will probably be shoved down the memory hole for its political incorrectness. In the meantime, in honor of Ms. Stuart Parramore:

On a tip from Rob Banks.

    lol! That figures. “Under my Thumb” is one of my favorite Stones songs.

    Of course Lynne Stuart probably justifies the Muslim men’s beating and honor killings of their wives and daughters, because they are acting on their “religious” beliefs.

    Total hypocrites – every one of them on the left.

    This is the type of thing that only seems to offend fugly lesbians. Maybe

    about Under My Thumb, she is going to crap her panties over this:

    We should start a petition to get the Stones “Stupid Girl” changed to reflect today’s standards. The new title could be “Dominant White Christian Males Must Be Silenced”.

    Has a catchy ring to it, no?

But what if I did and they played some music I didn’t like? Could I tell them to stop? Just wondering.

  43. I actually think the Stones lean to the right a bit- I never heard Kieth Richards say anything even remotely liberal- he always said bands have no business getting into politics because it makes them a bore. And Mick -who attended the London School of Economics- is really a restrained, common-sense character when it comes to fiscal issues in his own/the band’s life, anyway… he’s probably the only reason they all got so rich.

    Writing for the as-usual misnamed ‘truth-out’, Parramore begins:

    Why American Conservatives Are Suddenly Freaking Out About Guillotines

    She then quotes moonbat Warren Buffet:

    Warren Buffett made this very clear in his declaration: “There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.”

    He’s hardly a viable spokesperson for conservatives.

    Her insanity is revealed for all:

    It is the rich who have made war against the 99 percent, not the other way around. They have dumped the tax burden onto the rest of us. They have shredded our social safety net and attacked our retirements. In their insatiable greed, they refuse even to consider raising the minimum wage for people who toil all day and can’t earn enough to feed their children. And they do everything in their power to block as many people from the polls as possible who might protest these conditions, while crushing the unions and any other countervailing forces that could fight to improve them.

    The goal of this vicious war is to control all of the wealth and the government not just in the U.S., but the rest of the world, too, and to make sure the people are kept in a state of fear.

    YES, moonbats really believe this nonsense.

    Even acts of goodness are wrong, by her standards:

    Like steel tycoon Andrew Carnegie, who successfully transitioned from robber baron to philanthropist, David H. Koch and his conservative colleagues put on the mask of philanthropy to hide their war dance. Or they project their aggression onto ordinary people who are simply trying to feed their families, pay the bills, and keep the roof over their heads. Many of the wealthy liberals play a less crass version of the game: they talk about inequality only to alleviate their conscience while secretly — or not so secretly — protecting their turf (witness: NY Governor Andrew Cuomo and his mission to reduce taxes on his wealthy benefactors).

    I can’t really read that stuff… I have a suspicion that sort of moonbattery can eventually poison your mind if you deliberately immerse yourself in it often enough.

    Though she does get 1 thing right:

    The oligarchs hope that Americans will be so tired, so pumped full of Xanax, so terrified, that they will remain in their places.

    “The oligarchs” she speaks of? Well it’s not her favorite targets. Rather it’s the likes of Al Gore, Barack Hussein Sotero, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Andrew Cuomo, Warren Buffet, George Soros – all those who buy into the attempts to keep the masses off balance with their climate terrorism, their class warfare arguments, their continued attempts to inject racism into every discussion. They do want to keep their target audience confused, afraid, on drugs and always willing to vote for the party that promises to solve all their problems, problems which can be traced directly back to that very party!

    I wonder – was she aware she was talking about a Democrat “success story” when she wrote this headline?

    Crain’s Detroit Business Editor Channels Slave Imagery, Says Detroit Needs ‘Permanent Overseer’

    That’s pretty much what the Democrats work towards – a subjugated class who knows that they’d better vote Democrat, OR ELSE!

    Well yeah, maybe when they’re DEMOCRAT policies…

    And, finally, this one:

    That’s what moonbats believe, oddly enough.

    “As a life-long feminist, I’ve often been struck by the lack of insight in the political realm into a simple fact: So-called “women’s issues” are everyone’s issues.

    Of course, “reproductive healthcare” is code for the ‘right’ to murder your unborn child on demand. Not the sort of care a woman desperately needs – counseling to help her avoid doing just that if she’s thinking about it, since it has LIFE LONG DETRIMENTAL physiological and psychological affects on HER if she goes through with it. Not to mention the unborn child gets MURDERED.

    But this is how they think. They wrap up something evil in a pure, ‘good’ wrapper then attack YOU and ME for pointing out the truth.

    No true feminist would ever support abortion on demand, abortion as a viable method of birth control. Abortion should be reserved for those rare cases where it is appropriate.
