The father of 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell, denied a birthday cake with the child's full name on it by one New Jersey supermarket, is asking for a little tolerance.
You name your child after the world's most, uh, intolerant (to say the least) man in history, and then ask for tolerance?
I. Don't. Think. So.
Heath Campbell and his wife, Deborah, are upset not only with the decision made by the Greenwich ShopRite, but with an outpouring of angry Internet postings in response to a local newspaper article over the weekend on their flare-up over frosting.
Here comes the irony quote of the day…..
"I think people need to take their heads out of the cloud they've been in and start focusing on the future and not on the past," Heath Campbell said Tuesday in an interview conducted in Easton, on the other side of the Delaware River from where the family lives in Hunterdon County, N.J.
He defends his decision to name his child Adolf Hitler this way:
"They need to accept a name. A name's a name. The kid isn't going to grow up and do what (Hitler) did."
It's true: Adolf Hitler is a name, and a name is a name. You know what else is a name? Frank. George. Mike. Steve. There's literally thousands of names. Let's not pretend that the selection of "Adolf Hitler" was mere happenstance, okay, buddy?
And yes, it's true that the kid probably isn't going to grow up and do what Hitler did. Instead, the kid is going to grow up getting his ass kicked. And not finding employment.
And speaking of names, Adolf Hitler Campbell has a sister with the name — I'm not making this up — JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell.
Yeah, get over it, people. "Aryan Nation" is just a name. Doesn't mean anything.
