These parents (yeah, the person on the left reportedly is a dude) named their child, whom they are cuddling, Adolf Hitler and they say they don’t know what all the fuss is about. And if you want a swastika on your kid’s birthday cake, try Wal-Mart.
Looking at me — white male, blue eyes, shaved head — you might think that I’m a white supremacist.
Uh, I’m not. I’m queerer than a $3 bill; I find many if not most “Christians” to be quite satanic, ironically (let’s slaughter those Muslim babies for Jeeezus!); and I think that George W. Bush should be held to the same standards of justice that Americans expect other nations’ mass murdering dictators (such as Saddam Hussein, most recently) to be held to. And that’s just for starters.
Can I get a race change?
Because white people like these make me feel damned embarrassed to be white:
[From The Associated Press] EASTON, Pa. – 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. 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.
“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 [today] in an interview conducted in Easton, on the other side of the Delaware River from where the family lives in Hunterdon County, N.J.
“There’s a new president and he says it’s time for a change; well, then it’s time for a change,” the 35-year-old continued. “They need to accept a name. A name’s a name. The kid isn’t going to grow up and do what (Hitler) did.”
Deborah Campbell, 25, said she phoned in her order last week to the ShopRite. When she told the bakery department she wanted her son’s name spelled out, she was told to talk to a supervisor, who denied the request.
Karen Meleta, a spokeswoman for ShopRite, said the Campbells had similar requests denied at the same store the last two years and said Heath Campbell previously had asked for a swastika to be included in the decoration.
“We reserve the right not to print anything on the cake that we deem to be inappropriate,” Meleta said. “We considered this inappropriate.”
The Campbells ultimately got their cake decorated at a Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania, Deborah Campbell said. About 12 people attended the birthday party on Sunday, including several children who were of mixed race, according to Heath Campbell.
“If we’re so racist, then why would I have them come into my home?” he asked.
The Campbells’ other two children also have unusual names: JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell turns 2 in a few months and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell will be 1 in April.
Heath Campbell said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because “no one else in the world would have that name.” He sounded surprised by all the controversy the dispute had generated.
Campbell said his ancestors are German and that he has lived his entire life in Hunterdon County. [Today] he wore a pair of black boots he said were worn by a German soldier during World War II.
He said 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.
“Say he grows up and hangs out with black people. That’s fine, I don’t really care,” he said. “That’s his choice.”
Why the fuck is it that the haters, such as the white supremacists who name their kids Adolf Hitler and the homo-haters who think that gay men and lesbians should be denied their equal human and civil rights, have now co-opted the concept of tolerance and are demanding tolerance for their intolerance? And worse, why are so many Americans actually buying this sick and twisted “argument”?
And the same stupid white dude who likes to prance around in Nazi footwear from World War II tells the rest of us that we need to “start focusing on the future and not on the past.” Hmmm…
Here’s a heterosexual couple that thinks that the swastika belongs on a child’s birthday cake and thinks that “Adolph Hitler” and “Aryan Nation” are appropriate names for their children.
But we must not — must not! — let those fags and dykes raise our precious children!
Why do the white-pride people make me feel so ashamed to be white?
