Remember poor Adolf?
March 12, 2009 - Bill Ackerbauer
Remember the poor kid whose parents tried to get his name — Adolf Hitler — written on a birthday cake? See an update from the Associated Press below.
If it's true that the publicity from that event is what prompted the state to take the kids away from their white supremacist parents, I say hip-hip-hooray for the news media. But then again, it shouldn't have taken a newspaper report to get the authorities interested in this family. The names on the kids' birth certificates should have prompted a closer look before they even left the maternity ward.
No ruling in case of kids with Nazi-themed names
FLEMINGTON, N.J. (AP) — A judge in New Jersey hasn’t yet decided whether to return three children with Nazi-inspired names to their parents. Deborah and Heath Campbell of Holland Township were in Family Court in Hunterdon County on Thursday. They made headlines in December when a supermarket refused to decorate a birthday cake with the name of their 3-year-old son, Adolf Hitler Campbell. New Jersey’s Division of Youth and Family Services removed the boy and younger sisters JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell from the home in January. Heath Campbell believes the removal was prompted by the publicity. Neither parent would comment as they left court Thursday afternoon, but Heath Campbell’s lawyer, Pasquale Giannetta, said he’s ‘‘pretty confident’’ the children will be reunited with their parents. It was not immediately clear when the judge would rule.
