Lee called him a “scared, sheltered, cowardly little snowflake” whose backward rhetoric will harm the state party.
“I don’t expect people to apologize for peaceably assembling to achieve racial equality in this country,” Lee wrote in an open letter to Frost. “Black Lives Matter, and they matter hard. It’s time you had some real courage to escape your actual and real privilege to admit that.”
Frost has made a string of disparaging comments that have infuriated Democrats and embarrassed his fellow Republicans, including offering supportive words for an anti-vaccine movement.
And in August, he told a conservative gathering that Republicans are destined to dominate politics over the next few decades because Democratic women "forgot to reproduce" and claimed a GOP "fertility advantage" because the party opposes abortion rights.
"They've done everything. They've got the institutions. They've got the universities. They've got Hollywood. They've got big tech," he said of Democrats.
“They’ve got everything. But they forgot one little thing: They forgot to reproduce. They forgot to have babies. And we didn’t. And in 20 years, we’re going to inherit those institutions.”
