EASTON, Pa. A supermarket is defending itself for refusing to a write out 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell's name on his birthday cake. Deborah Campbell, 25, of nearby Hunterdon County, N.J., said she phoned in her order last week to the Greenwich 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 ShopRite spokeswoman, said the store denied similar requests from the Campbells the last two years, including a request for a swastika. "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 Tuesday. A Wal-Mart spokesman told The Associated Press on Wednesday that in light of the incident, the company would review its guidelines regarding cake decorations and other requests. "It's clear that in serving this customer, some people were offended," spokesman Greg Rossiter said. "As a result, we're going to review our policies." 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." The Campbells' two other children are named JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, who turns 2 in a few months, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, who will be 1 in April.

And it’s always good to remember that the only thing we really give our children which last their entire life is their name. The store has my sympathies. So do these children.
On the other hand, this is one of the few times you can really shout at someone and say with meaning, “You’re an effin fascist.”
I can’t believe they have to defend themseleves. I think we all get it.
Well, HUSSEIN OBAMA’s first cousin is named FIDEL CASTRO ODINGA, try getting a cake decorated with that in Miami.
What kind of child-molestering creeps would name their infant son “Adolph Hitler Campbell”???
I suppose they thought they were being “clever”.
Evidently — given the names of their other children — they are White Supremacist bigots. And, unfortunately, they have the right to call their kids whatever they want. But surely there ought to be some commonsense and compassion for the little kid when they are making these bizarre decisions?
Lucky thing they didn’t ask me to decorate their cake for them. Too many good men fought and died once upon a time...
I am stereotyping and profiling but is this white trash or what?
exactly. I think it's more that YahooNews "phrases" it this way.
IMnsHO, giving such names to children is prima facia evidence of emotional abuse.
Wonder if they asked the shopgirl to put some gummi-swastikas on it?
Ill bet they gave him the cutest pair of jackbooties for his birthday.
I’m just curious...would they refuse a cake with Lenin, Mao, Ho, Fidel, Che, any African cannibal-despot-kleptocrat and so forth?
Some of them killed more than Adolf.
The press always likes to shine the light on the handful of white supremacists left in America like it’s still Birth Of A Nation everywhere.
for the record.....biggest mass murderer in history:
feminism....by a wide margin.....closing in on a half billion of those totally unable to defend themselves
proof that some people are too stupid to breed. Poor kid.
He had no mustache, wasn’t quite step march
I’m guessing my Idi Amin cinnamon rolls are out of the question, then.
The moral of the story is: if you want to be a Nazi-loving white supremacist, you have to learn to decorate your own cakes.
Probably, but the Pol Potstickers are still available.
The parents and the young Hitler in a family moment.
As are my Vlad Tepes Shish Kebabs.
That is what it is. I really don’t care.
We had one Hitler already. Isn’t one more than enough?
“As are my Vlad Tepes Shish Kebabs.”
Hmmm.... I guess I’d better tell my family the Pol Pot-Luck Dinner is canceled this year.
If a private business doesn't want to make a cake for someone, that's their business. It does seem curious why such a nonstory is a story when the press doesn't seem at all interested in so much material that's out there about the man about to become the most powerful living person...but silly me, I forget that THIS kind of foolishness is REAL news these days.
Grand Mufti Hussein partnered with Adolph Hitler during WWII and Saddam Hussein gassed his own people.
But we aren’t supposed to discriminate against people with the middle name Hussein.
Country Joe McDonald was named after Joseph Stalin. I do not know if his middle name is Stalin.
The parents are not looking out for their child but the child has done no wrong.
Better not try to take a stand against a lesbian wedding cake.
And they’re DUMB racists too!
One of their kids has the name “Hinler.” Apparently they’re not even smart enough to be able to open a book to get the spelling of the name “Himmler” right.
I don't know that I'd be eating THAT cake... Frosting can cover an awful lot...
“The parents and the young Hitler in a family moment.”
Looks like two women to me.
Another of their kids is named Aryan. For real.
That thing on the left is a dude? Old Adolf probably would’ve tossed it in the gas showers.
They traded their children’s lives for a lawsuit everywhere they go. I would try to pin a child abuse lawsuit on their ass at every turn.
(Sorry, I'm on a diet)
I saw the Easton Express-Times last Sunday morning had a frontpage article about this kid... which I didn’t bother reading. Slow news day, I guess. Kinda funny seeing this post... figured I’d register after trolling here forever.
Oh, and Shoprite is the best! I was in the Clinton store 2 days ago and the manager got on the PA and wished all the customers a Merry ***CHRISTMAS***. Cashiers said the same. It’s the small things...
You are correct the business should have every right to refuse to make any cake they do not want to.
Much like pharmacists should have every right to refuse to fill prescriptions they feel are against their religious beliefs.
I had the same problem with my kids Tokyo Rose and Axis Sally.
“That thing on the left is a dude? Old Adolf probably wouldve tossed it in the gas showers.”
Heh, it’s funny how so many of these guys look less like the “ideal Aryan” and a lot more like “That dude who used to sell me weed in high school.”
Adorable little kid, though. Hope life goes easier for him that I suspect it’s going to...
“I cant believe they have to defend themseleves.”
Wal-Mart made the cake. To hell with them.
The kid looks like a “she” as well. ...and I wouldn’t be surprised if it is.
Ah, I just read the caption — their “son” Adolf. Kid got his gender neutral looks from his “dad.”
Please!!! The politically correct term is “Caucasian Refuse”.
Wow, that’s from the shallow end of the gene pool.
wow, uh, I’d never name a child those names together in any form.
Great point. But the leftists believe the price of daring to open and run a business is the sacrifice of one's religious beliefs.
Of course, if someday a pharmacist refused to sell a "morning after" pill to someone because they learned their fetus was predisposed to homosexuality, the left would applaud this wonderful example of standing up for one's personal beliefs.
Oh well, the name Iran means land of Aryans. Actually, the name Aryan should be perfectly fine.
Nothing says ‘classy’ like a neck tattoo.
some people are not cut out to be parents.
i bet someone will be filing for a name change when he reaches 18.
My advice to the above folks: Go down to City Hall and change your name to something less conspicuous. Like, say, Schickelgruber.
