Parents Wonder Why Adolph Hitler is Refused Cake

. Wednesday, December 17

What's in a name? Well, let's ask 3 year old Adolph Hitler Campbell in 10 years. He made the news today because a grocery store refused to decorate a birthday cake with "Happy Birthday Adolph Hitler," and it's not the first time that this particular store denied this family's requests for cakes decorated questionably with things like swastikas. Heath and Deborah Campbell have two younger children as well: JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell turns 2 in a few months and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell will be 1 in April. Daddy Heath told reporters that "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." Well, I hope so, Heath, because your claim of "A name's a name. The kid isn't going to grow up and do what (Hitler) did" doesn't quite explain your choice of names. With a white supremest father, who knows what little Adolph Hitler will become.

Thanks Jude! You gave me what I was trying to remember when I first saw the story and photo. That little kid looks angelic, just like the kid on The Omen. Haunting, isn't it?

This is a joke, right?

Where do these parents live, in Vilonia?

Theresa Komor said...

I wish it was a joke, Paul. That poor kid! I think they're in New Jersey.

Wow. Uh, if a kid is named "Adolph Hitler," it's pretty obvious what's expected of him.

What a creepy couple.

Theresa Komor said...

Yeah, not the kind you'd want living next door!

Earlier today, Simon sent me this as a comment:

Hey Theresa,

I read your post today mentioning the fact that Adolf Hitler's parents were unable to get their kid a birthday cake at their local supermarket and so were forced to go to Walmart instead. I don't know if you've heard this ironic tidbit, but Walmart has a history of PR blunders dealing with Nazism. Back in 2006 they had to apologize for selling Nazi T-shirts:

And then in 2005 they had to apologize for running an ad that compared a zoning ordinance with Nazi book burning:

Anyway, I thought this was something you and your readers would find amusing/hilarious.

take care,
Simon

Hey there. I do not believe that we will be able to ask Adolph Hitler Campbell, "what's in a name" in 10 years because if the boy is smart, he will have a name change the moment he can.

I hope you're right about that, Metal, but it will all depend on how much of the extremism he can fend off.
