Oh No 3-year-old Hitler can't get name on cake

MSNBC.com


3-year-old Hitler can't get name on cake

Family upset at store for denying request, and angry Internet postings


Heath Campbell, left, and his wife Deborah, were told that a store in Greenwich, N.J. would not inscribe their three-year-old son's full name, Adolf Hitler Campbell, center, on a birthday cake.


The Associated Press
updated 10:16 p.m. PT, Tues., Dec. 16, 2008

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."

That kid will certainly have a rough time growing up. I can't believe the parents were that stupid.

I heard about this story on another site. It is really weird and I feel sorry for that kid to have a name like that.

Another interesting fact: Did you know that Jani Lane, the former lead singer of Warrant, was originally named John Kennedy Oswald? He was born in February 1964, a few months after the president's assassination. What were his parents thinking??

I won't call them stupid but what was their reasoning for naming their poor, innocent child that name? Something selfish was taking place. They did not think about that poor child. I found out about this story on "The View" this morning. "Adolph Hitler Campbell".

I'd definitely call them stupid, and take it a step further by saying they deserve to be shot.

Most states, outside of marriage or sincere religious conversion, usually require a few hoop-jumps to get a name change. This kid probably won't have much of a problem, though:

<14 years from now>
Judge: Let's see, name change case #987654321-0....requested name: James William Smith.....current name: Adolf Hitler Campbell. GRANTED. Incidentally, young man, what WERE your parents thinking?

In the words of Michael K.: "I'm sure nobody in the world has "STUPID ****" on their birth certificate, but that isn't a reason to name your kid that."

Sound like a couple of idiots looking for trouble if you ask me. Aryan Nation? Seriously? And the dad looks like a woman. Just throwing that out there.

The name change is granted on the ground that the parents are IDIOTS!!

it's one thing to name him adolf, but throwing in the last name shows that the parents honor the guy in some way, whether or not they're bad people. but still no excuse for the bakery to refuse to put it on his cake.

Oh No

Oh, and get this: The parents say they're NOT racists, but they just wouldn't want their kid going out with a person of color when he comes of age!


Gee, maybe the kid should be enrolled at Bob Jones University.

I knew this guy in college who called Bob Jones University KKK University. Bad, but it made me laugh.

I don't know much about the Bob Jones University...is it that bad?

I know a person on some other forums who once attended and he's a nice guy. Some people attack him because he's a Wiccan (a witch.) My boyfriend used to be a Wiccan and has a wand and some spellbooks at home. Wicca is a neat religion.
