Supermarket defends itself over Adolf Hitler cake
Yahoo ^ | Yahoo News

Posted on 12/17/2008 9:34:42 PM PST by Feline_AIDS

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.”

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...

IMnsHO, giving such names to children is prima facia evidence of emotional abuse.

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

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.

That looks like a still from a David Lynch movie.

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 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.

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...

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.

My advice to the above folks: Go down to City Hall and change your name to something less conspicuous. Like, say, Schickelgruber.

Oftentimes married couples will keep one another in check, but these two oddballs seem bent (together!) on messing up their kids. Little Adolph Hitler is probably already pretty insufferable, due to their neglect.

P.S. My father's first name was Adolph ... but he never went by it. He took on his middle name instead.
