Child Named Adolf Hitler is Denied His Name on His Birthday Cake

A local supermarket refused to make a cake for a three year old boy after being told his name was Adolf Hitler.

The store was happy to make the cake and leave enough room for his parent’s to write their own inscription but the Campbell’s refused and said they would have the supermarket chain Wal-Mart make the cake instead.

This is not the first time the Campbell family have been turned down by the ShopRite store.  The first time was when they ordered a cake for their two year old daughter JoyceLynn Aryan Nation. 

Speaking from their home filled with swastikas, German combat knives and war books Heath and Deborah Campbell are quick to say they are ‘not racists but believe races shouldn’t mix’.

Unable to Work Because of Disabilities

Heath Campbell a Holocaust denier named his three children for Nazism says he does not want to force his views on his children, in part because he had views forced on him and was quick to point out he teaches his children nonviolence.

Unable to work because of disabilities the couple said they wanted to give their children unusual and unique names and were surprised that they are causing problems.

Mother to the three children Deborah Campbell says ‘I just figured that they’re just names.  They’re just kids.  They’re not going to hurt anybody”.

Their third and youngest child one year old Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie was named for Schutzstaffel (SS) head Heinrich Himmler.

Heath Campbell told reporters of his German ancestry and pointed out the boots he was wearing were previously owned by a relative of his who fought for the SS and stated that he considered the swastikas around his house and on his car ‘art’.  “It does not mean hatred to me” he said.

Children Will Be Harmed in Later Life by Names

After a spokesperson for the Anti-Defamation League in Philadelphia applauded ShopRite’s decision, Robert M. Gordon who is a clinical psychologist stated ‘the names would hurt the children’. 

He went on to say “Certainly society is going to be hostile towards those kids, especially when they go to school.  More than that, the children would be harmed by their parent’s views.

By the time they get to school they will already have been damaged and any parent that would impose such horrific names on their children is mentally ill.  They would be affecting their children from the day they were born.  Only a crazy person would do that”.

ShopRite’s decision was also commended by Barry Morrison, who is also a director of the Anti-Defamation League.  He said “The Campbell’s might as well put a sign around their (the children’s) neck that says bigot, racist, hatemonger.  What’s the difference?  Why not call the kid Peace of Tranquillity or Hope or Acceptance?”

Meanwhile a three year old little boy who answers to the name of Hitler is totally unaware of the controversy and meaning behind his name that no other boy in his nursery shares with him or is likely to.
