    The New "American"Adolph Hitler

    How about this kid's future!! Thanks folks!

    EASTON, Pa. 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."

    Deborah Campbell, 25, said she phoned in her order last week to the ShopRite. When she told the bakery department she wanted her son's name spelled out, she was told to talk to a supervisor, who denied the request.

    Karen Meleta, a spokeswoman for ShopRite, said the Campbells had similar requests denied at the same store the last two years and said Heath Campbell previously had asked for a swastika to be included in the decoration.

    "We reserve the right not to print anything on the cake that we deem to be inappropriate," Meleta said. "We considered this inappropriate."

    The Campbells ultimately got their cake decorated at a Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania, Deborah Campbell said. About 12 people attended the birthday party on Sunday, including several children who were of mixed race, according to Heath Campbell.

    "If we're so racist, then why would I have them come into my home?" he asked.

    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.

    He said he was raised not to avoid people of other races but not to mix with them socially or romantically. But he said he would try to raise his children differently.

    "Say he grows up and hangs out with black people. That's fine, I don't really care," he said. "That's his choice."

    Are you putting this article out here because you believe the store has the right, as a private business (ie not publicly owned government service), to refuse service to bigots who chose to name their child an idiotic name?

    I'm just relieved because I thought Godwin's Law had been used in the damn thread title.

    This is why the government butts into people's personal business.

    Bullseye! The point of the post is why in the hell would anyone do that to a kid? Just picture this kid's future, I mean just saying you are of German decsent gives rise to indifference and I know, I am German but I tell everyone I am Hungarian just to avoid the "all Germans are Nazis" cracks.
    He better learn how to use his fists at a very young age and I'll throw out a guess that his dating and career numbers will suffer as well. Ya think?!

    (Note, their one year old daughters name is Jocelyn Arian Nation Campbell)

    Try reading the first line of the post before the actual story.

    The store does have the right, but as he already noted, these parents are morons. They gave their children ridiculous names and they will face a lifetime of scrutiny for it. One more reason why people should have to pass a test before they are allowed to have children IMO.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
