“I haven’t given you all a history lesson in a while, and I wanted to give you a little history on homelessness,” Niceley said. “Hitler decided to live on the streets for a while. So for two years, Hitler lived on the streets and practiced how to connect with the masses and then went on to lead a life that got him in the history books.” Niceley made the comments while other state leaders were debating a bill that would classify camping on public property as a misdemeanor in Tennessee. … “It’s not a dead end. They can come out of these homeless camps and have a productive life,” Niceley said.

“Hitler decided to live on the streets for a while. So for two years, Hitler lived on the streets and practiced how to connect with the masses and then went on to lead a life that got him in the history books.” Yep that’s what everyone remembers about Hitler. He made it in the history books. What did you do Steve?

It’s strange how Republicans keep mentioning Hitler in a positive light these days. I wonder why that is.

In case it wasn’t clear to anyone who still were talking about the “quiet parts out loud”… yeah, it’s not a secret anymore. It’s their platform.

You don’t just decide to be homeless. Nor do you use Hitler as inspiration to criminalize homelessness. We could easily house every single homeless person in America by converting a few of the 18 MILLION vacant houses in the US into homeless shelters.
