See, this is what I meant several posts ago when I said giving your child a goofy name is tantamount to child abuse.
A New Jersey man and his wife are angry that their 3-year-old son, Adolf Hitler, was denied a birthday cake by their local ShopRite grocery store.
Heath and Deborah Campbell wanted a custom cake for Hitler's 3rd birthday party. But ShopRite thought it would be distasteful to inscribe a cake with happy birthday wishes to Hitler. The Campbells believe it was cruel to the child, who doesn't know history and just wanted a birthday cake. Eventually Wal-Mart agreed to make the cake, as they had for the birthday of one of the Campbell's daughters, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell.
Another daughter is named Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, the latter being an homage to Heinrich Himmler.
The Campbells, who reportedly are Holocaust deniers and whose house is decorated with Swastikas, insist Adolf Hitler is just a unique name that they chose 'cause they believed no other child would have it. They argue, that in spite of their feelings about racial separation...but not superiority, the old Hitler and the ideas he represented are dead, and that the new Hitler, their Hitler will be raised in a normal way that allows him to choose when he's older what types of people he'll associate with.
Hmmm. I don't even have any jokes about this one. Whatever the Campbell's motives were I call this child abuse. Even if the Campbells are right in their theory that young Hitler won't be teased and tortured by other school children some day, what's it gonna do to his psyche when in 8th-grade World History class he hears about the things his namesake did?
Of course, the question could be moot. There's a good chance young Hitler will learn about those things at home.
