Trolling for Reaction to Los Suns, Part 2

This time we have the surprising (at least, in its venue) response from Jan Brewer, with this line standing out:
Put simply, history shows that boycotts backfire and harm innocent people.
Which part of history is she talking about? Late colonial American history, culminating in the suddenly current-again Boston Tea Party? The Montgomery Bus Boycott? Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers? All of those were unsuccessful? Evidently, my history teachers were all terrible.

And the boycott on South Africa to end apartheid did nothing to help Black Africans and Nelson Mandela gain equality and freedom in that era.

Boycott Arizona!

Yeah forgot that one. The list is long. Really weird comment from her, I guess she doesn't have much faith in the ESPN readership.
