The Georgia Republican Party’s leadership has publicly admonished a state GOP official who said that demonstrators kneeling in protest against racial injustice and police brutality are turning the US into the ‘land of the weak and home of the slave’.

The Georgia GOP’s state executive committee voted Saturday to formally disagree with the statement made by Brant Frost V, the party’s second-vice chair, who has a history of making controversial remarks.

Stewart Bragg, the party’s executive director, called Frost’s statement that was originally posted to Facebook, ‘poorly worded and inflammatory’.

It’s unclear if the Coweta County conservative activist will face any further disciplinary action. Frost could not be reach for comment when contacted by DailyMail.com.

Frost’s post, which has since been deleted, praised what he called an ‘epic monologue’ by Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson condemning the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality.

‘We all know why this is happening but dare not speak the truth,’ Frost wrote in response. ‘America – the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave is becoming the Land of the Weak and the Home of the Slave. Americans used to believe it was better to die on your feet than live on your knees. It’s time to Stand Up Again.’

His remarks were vehemently criticized on Friday by a number of bipartisan officials and activists, such as Robert Lee, a Republican who was defeated by Frost for the leadership post at last year’s state GOP convention.

Lee blasted Frost as a ‘scared, sheltered, cowardly little snowflake’ whose backward rhetoric will harm the state party, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.

‘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 series of disparaging comments in recent times that have both enraged Democrats and drawn criticism from his fellow Republicans, which include making supportive statements about the anti-vaccine movement.

In August last year, Frost told a conservative gathering that he believed Republicans will dominate politics for the next few decades because Democratic women ‘forgot to reproduce’ and claimed the GOP have a ‘fertility advantage’ because their party opposes abortion.

‘They’ve done everything. They’ve got the institutions. They’ve got the universities. They’ve got Hollywood. They’ve got big tech,’ Frost 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.

‘The other side has a culture of death. We have a culture of life. Christian and conservative women have a 35% fertility advantage over Democrat women,’ Frost asserted. ‘And the more conservative a woman is, the more likely she is to be married and have lots of kids.’
