From a speech given by the Tennessee state senator in April during a debate on a bill to make camping along highways a misdemeanor.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I haven’t given y’all a history lesson in a while, and I want to give you a little history on homelessness. In 1910, Hitler decided to live on the streets for a while. So for two years, Hitler lived on the streets and practiced his oratory and body language and how to connect with the masses, and then went on to lead a life that got him into history books. So for a lot of these people, it’s not a dead end. They can come out of these homeless camps and have a productive life, or in Hitler’s case, a very unproductive life. I support this bill.
