In a now-deleted tweet, Maxwell Alejandro Frost, Gen Z’s first member of Congress, declared that the ‘murder of Tyre Nichols is anti-Black and the result of white supremacy’. Tyre Nichols was killed after a brutal beating by five black Memphis police officers.

He wasn’t alone. As Twitchy readers know, Van Jones got in on the act as well.

The heat Frost was receiving from Twitter for such an absurd statement caused the new congressman to delete the tweet without comment.

By the way, Maxwell, we’re gonna have to ditch the middle name or something, if you’re going to make a habit of giving us masterpieces like this. It’s just too much to type. Maybe you could go for an AOC, RBG, or MTG thing?


No, that sounds too much like a subject we no longer teach in public schools. We’ll work on it. Anyhoo …

We’ve captured some of the responses to Frost’s deleted tweet for you.

We suppose it’s possible the entire Memphis police force is a secret band of Clayton Bigsby’s, but … nah.

Democrats never miss an opportunity to use race as a political weapon, even when it makes no sense.

It really is absurd.

The List brought out the large pen it was so bad.

We assume Maxwell earned his ‘I blamed white supremacy’ merit badge for this tweet, but we’ll need a ruling from the new Dem scout master, Hakeem Jeffries, on whether it still counts if he deletes the tweet.

The left waters down all language. It’s easier to call your political opponent a white supremacist, racist, Nazi, fascist, or whatever slander they choose for the day, once they’ve diluted the meaning to the point nobody can agree on what those labels mean.

He’ll likely explain that he was forced to delete the tweet because of white supremacy.

We have a feeling Mr. Frost is going to be providing solid material for a long time.
