Cake request for 3-year-old Hitler namesake denied

Heath Campbell, left, with his wife Deborah and son Adolf Hitler, 3, pose in AP – Heath Campbell, left, with his wife Deborah and son Adolf Hitler, 3, pose in Easton, Pa.,, Tuesday, Dec. …

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."

Yeah there's a kid who is going to be shooting his parents in the face in 10 years after they take away his Halo.

What idiots. The dad talks like an internet troll.

Who even names their kid Adolf Hitler. Seriously who even does that? The kid isn't going to even make it to the age where he can kill his parents because someone is going to beat him to death before that.

who in their right mind would think that this wouldn't cause a stir? i mean come on, he admits to being raised by racists (or seperatists at the very least) and gives his kids the names of people that obviously aren't considered the greatest figures in history, but yet he's not a racist. i think he lost me when it said he tried to put a swazi on a previous cake.

Most Wal-Marts in Jersey don't have grocery departments or bakeries. However, there are also fewer Wal-Marts here than there are in some areas of the country. We have a Starbucks:Wal-Mart ratio of 3.4.

Hunterdon is a crappy county that has similar demographics to North Western PA. Most areas of Hunterdon are poor for commuting, and large portions of it are in the Delaware river flood plane. The attraction seems to be that it's a little closer to the NY metro than PA is, but it's far enough out that you can find cheap housing.

I think it's funny when naming your kids in itself is a cry for attention.

I was considering naming my son 'Proud Tobe White', but his mother wasn't hearing that one for some reason.

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

uh...


This did give me a good idea for an animation about a young Hitler running for class president in modern America. I could call it 'Hitler's Youth'.

Haha, what the fuck? (from their website)

Hitler with Santa Hat in Good Taste?

11/08/07

"Michael, I have been a customer of PzG going on five years I have always enjoyed the selection of goods and the good will set fourth by you and your family especially in your assistance with Mr. Zundel's oppression. I am distressed and disappointed in your Mug and Candle items "Hitler Christmas with Santa Hat". I believe this item makes a devalued caricature of a man that is not fitting. Please consider the impact of such items on the legacy of his work, image, and historical achievements." - Robert

"Robert, Thank you for writing me. I did indeed consider carefully the Fuehrer’s image before I made the Merry Christmas mugs and candles both with and without the stocking hat. At first glance I would agree with you and have done so for several years. However the reason I changed my mind was that almost no one knows just how generous the Fuehrer really was. When he was a starving student he signed over his small pension to his half sister. He personally picked out all the gifts for his staff and foreign heads of state. He granted pensions to widowers and also granted estates to many of his soldiers and generals including those of other countries. These are just the few examples that I know of. Mostly he gave himself selflessly to his beloved German people. My idea was to change the perception of the Fuehrer to include his generous and loving nature by causing people to stop and think about their long held views. This is one of the reasons for the Blondie mugs, I’ll admit the Santa image is a stretch to the lighter side. By the way the mugs, steins and candles with the hat are out selling the ones without."

I love that they're concerned about Hitler's image. Amazing website. I can finally buy that Mussolini bust I've always wanted.

I was doing some research on Lemurians and came across a crazy Aryan website that had an amazing section on alien beliefs. It made me not want to believe in aliens, but I couldn't.

My mom is from Germany. I'm 1st gen. American. I was raised going back and forth between here and Germany. Hitler was not a good person to both the Jews and a lot of Germans. The stories that my family actually talk about back this up. Supplies stolen from the farm, house ransacked, etc. Every time I see some neo-nazi/master race aryan fuck I can't help but think that those scum bags would be on a cattle car as well. I can only hope that a lot of ironic things happen to these children. I hope bodies are turning in their graves by what they do when they are adults. Thats all.

edited** I talked to Shane about the stigma attached to German Nationalism, in Germany. Not about this other stuff.
