In a bizarre turn of events, Senator Frank Niceley (R-Strawberry Plains-District 8) took to the floor on Wednesday to give his fellow Senators “a little history lesson on homelessness” in which he pointed to Hitler as an example to aspire to.
Senator Niceley made his remarks during debate on a bill that makes camping or soliciting along state highways or exit ramps a class C misdemeanor.
“Hitler decided to live on the streets for a while. So for two years, Hitler lived on the streets and practiced oratory and his body language and how to connect with the masses, and then went on to lead a life that got him into history books,” said Niceley.
“So a lot of these people, it’s not a dead end. They can come out of this, these homeless camps and have a productive life, or in Hitler’s case, a very unproductive life,” he continued. “I support this bill.”
