Ya know, I have to take a recent quote from the mayor of Baltimore MD here about this family. “…we have some very mentally disturbed individuals in the city.” There’s a joke somewhere in here about a “master race” family and needing some bleach in the gene pool of this specific family, but I’m not going to go there.. oh wait… I just did.
And there is another joke, which some may think tasteless that Nazis have invaded Holland Township. But hey, I never said I was politically correct, now did I?
“Say Adolf,” said Campbell, a Holocaust denier who has three children named for Nazism.
Adolf Hitler Campbell – it’s indeed the name on his birth certificate – turns 3 today, and the Campbell family believes the boy has been mistreated. A local supermarket refused to make a birthday cake with “Adolf Hitler” on it.
The ShopRite in Greenwhich Township has also refused to make a cake bearing the name of Campbell’s daughter, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, who turns 2 in February.
“ShopRite can’t even make a cake for a 3-year-old,” said Deborah Campbell, 25, who is Heath’s wife of three years and the mother of the children. “That’s sad.”
Karen Meleta, a ShopRite spokeswoman, said the grocer tries to meet customer requests but rejects those deemed inappropriate. “We believe the request to inscribe a birthday wish to Adolf Hitler is inappropriate,” she said.
The grocer offered to make a cake with enough room for the Campbells to write their own inscription. But the Campbells refused, saying they would have a cake made at the Wal-Mart in Lower Nazareth Township. The Campbells say Wal-Mart made cakes for Adolf’s first two birthdays.
A spokeswoman for Wal-Mart said the store won’t put anything illegal or profane on a cake but thinks it’s important to respect the views of customers and employees.
“Our No.1 priority in decorating cakes is to serve the customer to the best of our ability,” Anna Taylor, the spokeswoman, said from Bentonville, Ark.
The Campbells have swastikas in each room of their home, the rented half of a one-story duplex just outside Milford, a borough in Hunterdon County. They say they aren’t racists but believe races shouldn’t mix.
The Campbells said they wanted their children to have unique names and didn’t expect the names to cause problems. Despite the cake refusal, the Campbells said they don’t expect the names to cause problems later, such as when the children start school.
“I just figured that they’re just names,” Deborah Campbell said. “They’re just kids. They’re not going to hurt anybody.”
Heath Campbell said some people like the names but others are shocked to hear them. “They say, ‘He [Hitler] killed all those people.’ I say, ‘You’re living in the wrong decade. That Hitler’s gone,’” he said.
“They’re just names, you know,” he said. “Yeah, they [Nazis] were bad people back then. But my kids are little. They’re not going to grow up like that.”
“Other kids get their cake. I get a hard time,” he said. “It’s not fair to my children.”
The Campbell home is kept neat aside from scattered toys and other evidence three small children live there. It’s small, but it’s what the Campbells can afford.
Disabilities, the couple says, have left both out of work: Heath Campbell can’t landscape or pump gas because he has emphysema, and Deborah can’t waitress because she has a bad back. They live on Social Security payments.
In the foyer, Heath Campbell, who said he has German ancestry and a relative who fought for the SS, took off boots he said were worn by a Nazi soldier named Daniel.
He laid them next to a skull with a swastika on its forehead, the first of dozens of swastikas seen by the Campbells’ rare guests.
There are swastikas on walls, on jackets, on the freezer and on a pillow. The family car had swastikas, Heath Campbell said, until New Jersey’s Department of Children and Families told him they could endanger the children.
The swastikas, Heath Campbell said, are symbols of peace and balance. He considers them art.
“It doesn’t mean hatred to me,” he said. Deborah Campbell said a swastika “doesn’t really have a meaning. It’s just a symbol.”
Umm yea… two parents in their 20s, living on social security with three children is the master race who says that the names are just names and mean nothing, and live in a house of swastikas while their social security and food stamps pay for a cake.
If the names are “meaningless” and the swastikas have no significance, they why are they associated together for Nazism? Obviously, Children’s Services have already been involved since the family was told the swastikas on the cars could endanger the children. And these “people” seem to think that the names they gave their children won’t endanger the kids? That kids are harmless? Where the hell have these people been? One day their eldest child will come home, in tears saying “Why do all the kids make fun of me daddy? Why do they hate me?” These idiot “parents” have chosen to make these kids lives a living hell by their “free right” and self political expression. If you have a political message to send, don’t use your children.
So let’s recap, shall we? Twenty-something parents, who live on disability, which would have been a death sentence under Hitler, and use said disability money to purchase swastikas and Nazi memorabilia to fill their home, name their kids after Nazis. Remember “arbeit macht frei” or “work brings freedom” not “beihilfe macht frei” or “subsidy brings freedom”. So a local supermarket refuses to make a “Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler” cake, but Wal-mart is just fine with it. And the parents are considering suing…… Clearly a perfect example of the “master race”….. Only in America.
