This is a really interesting story and I’m not sure which side to come down on in it because it’s completely fucked up whichever way you look at it.

The short documentary/trailer below tells the story of a guy called Heath Campbell. He’s a Neo-Nazi with a swastika tattoo on his neck that decide to call his son Adolf Hitler and give his daughters ridiculous middle names like ‘Aryan Nation’ and ‘Hail Himmler’.
Obviously Heath sounds like a great guy, but the shit really hit the fan when he tried to get a birthday cake saying ‘Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler’ on it from his local supermarket and they refused. Attention was now drawn to his kid and his way of life, and it ended with his neighbour reporting him for child abuse and his three children being taken away from their parents.
The video below will fill you in on some of the details:
It’s a tough one isn’t it? I mean obviously Heath is a complete and utter waste of space for his ridiculous beliefs and method of expressing them, but even so he isn’t a child abuser and it seems beyond harsh for the government to take his kids away for so long without any real reason.
Of course, you can argue that being raised in an environment like that and actually being named Adolf Hitler is the equivalent of child abuse as it’s hardly going to instill any worthwhile core values in you or give you the best start in life, is it? In fact you’re pretty much destined to grow up to be even more of a fucktard than your father if you’re exposed to that.
But does that justify separating you from your parents despite the fact other than their ideology they seem like perfectly loving parents? I want to say no, but I’m not sure if it really is the right answer. Let me know what you think.
Even if it wasn’t for the whole Nazi thing, the fact that Adolf Hitler had one of the most disgusting and depraved sex habits of all time is another good reason not to want to be associated with his name.
