Sarah Palin schooled an Illinois high school on the finer points of political boycotting when she rapped administrators’ knuckles for canceling a girls basketball team’s trip to Arizona in opposition to the Grand Canyon State’s new immigration law.
Palin’s lecture for Highland Park High School officials came during an appearance at the Rosemont Theatre in Chicago Wednesday night, according to the Clout Street blog in the Chicago Tribune.
“Keeping the girls basketball team off the court for political reasons? Those are fighting words,” Rick Pearson quoted the former Republican vice-presidential candidate as saying.
The former Alaska governor also noted that the school has allowed student trips to China, and asked whether school officials know “how they treat women in China,” Pearson wrote.
Palin also tweaked the title of her first book to encourage team members, saying, “Go rogue, girls.”
