The founder of New Jersey pro-Nazi organization "Hitler’s Order" appeared in family court wearing a Nazi uniform to petition for the right to visit his youngest son.This is wacky, but I don't see how it is any worse than the dad being a Commie or a Mohammedan. He is entitled to his beliefs. He should not have lost his kids for his beliefs.
The family made headlines in 2008 when a supermarket refused to write Adolf Hitler Campbell's name on a cake for his third birthday. The Campbells complained that it was discrimination and another store provided a cake, but the news led New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services (NJ DYFS) to investigate.
NJ DYFS officials placed Adolf Hitler Campbell, 7, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 6, and 5-year-old Honzlynn Jeannie Campbell in foster care due to alleged violence in the home. Hons Campbell was born later, in 2011, and NJ DYFS took the boy from Heath Campbell and his now estranged wife Deborah Campbell when he was just 16 hours old.
The couple argues that they have never abused their children, and that they are being discriminated against for giving their children Nazi-inspired names.
Heath Campbell, 40, hasn't seen his children in two years, and the three oldest have been adopted by another family. The children's mother has already given up her parental rights.
Prior to the closed-door custody hearing on Monday, Campbell told WCAU-TV that the Nazi uniform shouldn't affect the court's decision. "I'm going to tell the judge, I love my children; I wanna be a father, let me be it. Let me prove to the world that I am a good father."
I attacked JC Penney for its Apple anti-consumer attitude and its gay Fathers Day marketing, but now it just got caught promoting a Hitler tea kettle on a billboard. Penney had to pull the product and the billboard. Perhaps someone at Penney thought that it was a joke. You cannot joke about one of the great evil men of the 20th century, I guess.
