Parents Outraged That Bakery Denies Writing Son’s Name on Cake…. His Name Adolf Hitler !

In History, jerks, racism, stupidity, World War II on December 17, 2008 by Editor Z

This is not only ridiculous but tragic, that in this day in age anyone would burden their child and relegate him to what will no doubt be a life of ostricization and being a social outcast by naming their son after the most brutal tyrant of the 20th century, who slaughtered 6 million people and that is not counting all the allied soldiers fighting against the axis powers.

Anyway a Pennsylvania family is now outraged, as well as both awkwardly espousing and softly denying their Nazi sympathies, after criticizing a local bakery for not writing the name of their three year old son Adolf Hitler Campbell. They later did go to a Wal- Mart that wrote the name on the cake instead.

This is cruel. Though one could say who is the bakery to decide what is and is not offensive, and I am not suggesting that they legally ban someone naming a child after Hitler as they do in Eastern European countries. But the fact that anyone would actually do this in the 20th century is really outrageous and shows that people don’t necessarily grow more intelligent over time.

Associated Press:

EASTON, Pa. (AP) — The father of 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell, denied a birthday cake with the child’s full name on it by one New Jersey supermarket, is asking for a little tolerance. Heath Campbell and his wife, Deborah, are upset not only with the decision made by the Greenwich ShopRite, but with an outpouring of angry Internet postings in response to a local newspaper article over the weekend on their flare-up over frosting.

“I think people need to take their heads out of the cloud they’ve been in and start focusing on the future and not on the past,” Heath Campbell said Tuesday in an interview conducted in Easton, on the other side of the Delaware River from where the family lives in Hunterdon County, N.J.

“There’s a new president and he says it’s time for a change; well, then it’s time for a change,” the 35-year-old continued. “They need to accept a name. A name’s a name. The kid isn’t going to grow up and do what (Hitler) did.

He says he named his child after Hitler, not because he admires what the Getrman dictator did, but because he just liked the name because it is so unique and so uncommon. There is a reason for that you know? So naming your son after Adolf Hitler, just a mistake made after a drunken night in the Mel Gibson spirit? Well the Campbells have also cursed their two children with racist names, one after the white supremacist organization the Aryan Nation and the other after high level Hitler associate and Nazi Heinrich Himmler.

The Campbells’ other two children also have unusual names: JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell turns 2 in a few months and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell will be 1 in April.

Heath Campbell said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because “no one else in the world would have that name.” He sounded surprised by all the controversy the dispute had generated.

Campbell said his ancestors are German and that he has lived his entire life in Hunterdon County. On Tuesday he wore a pair of black boots he said were worn by a German soldier during World War II.
