A New Jersey judge ruled the parents of four children with Nazi-inspired names will not get custody of their kids.
Adolf Hitler Campbell, 6, and his two sisters, Joycelynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 5, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, 4, have been in state custody since shortly after a Holland Township grocer refused to decorate a birthday cake for the boy's third birthday, The (Newark, N.J.) Star-Ledger reported Wednesday.
State officials allegedly took custody of a newborn son, Hons Campbell, just hours after his birth in November.
Now, a Superior Court judge has decided that self-proclaimed Nazis Heath and Deborah Campbell cannot have custody of their children.
"These kids weren't abused. Our kids weren't taken because of abuse," Heath Campbell said. "I'm honest about who I am and what I am."
Lawyers in the case are prohibited from talking to the media by a gag order, but Kristine Brown, spokeswoman for the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services, said, "every call or investigation that DYFS initiates at the end of the day is to determine if the child is at risk or in the midst of child abuse and neglect."
"If I have to give up my Nazism, then so be it. I'll do it,"

I think the state of New Jersey should have the kids’ names legally changed. Then they should kill the parents. There is no excuse for this crap.
You never see photos of these people.
No, they should give the kids over to be adopted by a Jewish family. Then the nazis will kill themselves.
I wonder how many children have been removed from Black Panther families? Not saying this case is a good thing... I’m saying simply enforcement seems very selective IMHO.
Yeah, change their names to Fidel and Emma to satisfy the Hitler obsessives.
So.....what is the story?
Fugedaboutit. This is the "Garden State" we're talking about. Their list of idiotic names gets longer every day...
So in a nutshell, the kids were taken away because someone didn’t like their Parent’s choice of names.
All hail the power of the State!
Why is this a problem? Not my tastes or beliefs, but if the state can do this? Who is next, people who name their child John-Paul?
Due to its past as a Spanish colony, the Philippines suffer from a shortage of last names. This, that is presence of a large number of duplicate names, first and last, causes plenty of identity problems for its citizens, the institutions of government and commerce. To help themselves and their children the Filipinos resort to giving their children unique names, such that would outrage many sensitive Westerners, but which resonate differently in that part of the world. And so, there are Adolphs, Hitlers and Himmlers, with the familiar Spanish derived family names. No big deal there.
I found this article after viewing what seemed like the sixth or seventh 60 Minutes segment on American Nazi or KKK groups or topics since the start of the Obama candidacy in 2008. I’m still waiting for the segment on voter obstruction by the Black Panthers, or anything truely negative on race-baiters like Al Sharpton.
Can someone tell me how many white Americans actually belong to these hate groups? Can I get a number that excludes those currently incarcerated (where self defense is clearly a motivation)?
Should have been stopped at the point where they were putting the names on the Birth Certificate. Some names are routinely denied. That being said, there is a red flag here and an investigation should be done.
Rename the boy Trayvon and the girls LaTrina and Klamydia.
I’m with you on this one. I only see one group of Nazis in this story, and it’s not the parents.
If that’s them, then let me just say that I don’t think Hitler would have embraced them. And I don’t think I would want them for my mom & dad.
I am asking because I no longer just assume that any action by any level of government against any citizen is necessarily based upon any actual law.
I’m surprised that the name tapered off as slowly as it did in the US.
You, Brilliant, get bonus points for NOT knowing that. On the other hand, I am ashamed that I do know that.
Beat me to it.
LOL, good stuff, and likewise on that last.
If they had called him Adolf Shickelgruber, I suppose there never would have been much of a stink.
I agree. The kids may or may not adopt their parents' beliefs and will have to legally change their names when they're of age if they choose to do so. These parents used their children as a billboard for their political beliefs, an utterly cruel and selfish act. I don't see why the state had to take them, but I still have little sympathy for the parents.
Hey, if some BP parents name their kids things like Kill Whitey and Farrakhan Jr., I would recommend the same thing happen to them.
Exactly. I despise Hitler and Stalin equally but the state should have no say in this matter.
I’ve lived in the Philippines for a while and been there off and on for a decade, I have never heard or seen this.
First, there are far more last names, both Spanish and native origin, than in Korea for example (Lee, Park, Kim).
I work on computer directories, so last names and name conflicts are a big deal to me. Korea was a mess with ~80% having one of 4 last names.
That problem does not exist in the Philippines. There are scores of different languages and ethnic tribes, many of which have unique surnames.
Second, most Hispanic families (I lived in Mexico for a while too) give kids nicknames, and some would be considered offensive in the US (like “Negrito” or “Gordito” or “Chivis” for example).
The nicknames I know of Filipinos, just off the top of my head:
- Jay Ar (about 40 variations of this)
- Bong for Melchor
- Precious for Mary Grace
- Dhatz for Mohammad
- Tisoy for Melvin
- Tyson for Roby
- Ross for Roseando
- Boy is used in many nicknames
...these are not off the wall, offensive, or based on major Nazi figures.
I don’t know where you saw or read this, but it is something I’ve never seen in the parts of Luzon where I spend most of my time.
Okay, I understand and see that. They really projected their beliefs and used the kids without considering the issues the kids would have, granted.
...but who do you set up as the name police? What names do you consider offensive?
Clearly expletives would be unacceptable, but as abhorrent as Nazism and racism are, it is still legal in the US to be a Nazi or a racist and advocate those sick worldviews.
This is not Germany where the swastika and positive references to Nazism is banned. This is the US, where even the most despicable and evil concepts are protected precisely because we trust people and don’t trust censors to decide what is acceptable and what is not acceptable.
I agree giving the kids these names is horrible, but believing in Nazism is not yet a crime. This is s very dangerous precedent.
Are they going to punish parents for naming kids Jesus (common Spanish name), Christian, or Faith? Who are the name police and what criteria do they use to determine what is ok and was is not?
This is like death panels for child naming...way too much power to be given to a bureaucrat!
It wasn't Illinois...
So now it’s a race to see who can screw those kids over more, the parents or the courts. Glad to see the welfare of the kids is a top priority.

Nobody would normally know about little Adolph that Hitler was his middle name. Unless he wanted of himself to make a point of it.
There’s got to be more to the custody case than those silly, vain names.
The first story I read was about a store refusing to put the son's name on a birthday cake.
I did research on this case some time ago, but don't have the links. I was as incensed as everyone until I found out how dysfunctional the family really is. Despite what the parents are saying, there was a pattern of abuse/neglect between the parents and the kids. Child protective services had visited the home several times in the past. I think drugs were involved as well. If I recall, CPS has been prohibited from discussing the case, so anyone can write a story about what is happening, but the evidence of abuse is apparently being withheld.
There has been a lot of misreporting on the facts surrounding this family.
So the press wanted this to be a story about parents losing their kids for giving them an un-pc name, and they then proceeded to sweep all inconvenient details under the rug? Sounds familiar.
To be fair to 60 Minutes, tonight’s story was about a 10yr old boy shooting his Nazi father. 60 Minutes wanted so badly to conclude that the Nazi culture was responsible. It turned out that the father was an abusive alcholic loser.
Look, Nazisim is idiotic, but the state has no business telling parents what they can and can not teach their kids.
"Who ARE those guys?"
As the boy grows up his friends will all be asking, “Will you quit acting like a little Hitler????”
A family court had earlier determined that there was insufficient evidence that the parents had abused or neglected the children. That decision was stayed until the appeals court could review it.
On Thursday, the three-judge appeals panel determined there was enough evidence and that the children should not be returned. The panel sent the case back to family court for further monitoring.
The court found that there were myriad other reasons that proved the need for continued protection services for the children. According to court records, both parents are unemployed and both suffer from unspecified physical and psychological disabilities.
The court found that both parents were themselves victims of childhood abuse and said neither have received adequate treatment for their serious psychological conditions. Heath Campbell, 37, cannot read and Deborah Campbell dropped out of high school before finishing the 10th grade, according to court records .
The judges considered a typo-riddled note signed by Deborah Campbell and given to a neighbor. In it, Campbell says that if she were found dead, her husband was to blame.
Hes thrend to have me killed or kill me himself hes alread tried it a few times. Im afread that he might hurt my children if they are keeped in his care. He teaches my son how to kill someone at the age of 3, the letter read in part.
The [Campbell] family made headlines when a ShopRite supermarket in Greenwich, near the familys home in Holland Township in west-central New Jersey, refused to decorate a birthday cake with their sons name.
A Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania wound up decorating the cake .
I love that movie. :)
But back on topic... Did the parents have any sense of history?
That Eva Braun had style!
The state has no right deciding what parents can name thier children.just my 2 cents.
The article was in the Wall Street Journal, well sourced. Our experiences are just that - our experiences which don’t cover the entire universe.
I find this a bit hypocritical, considering we have a PRESIDENT named Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
Yet... Here we have father with daughter MOON UNIT.
The difference is, I don’t believe that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi or that turkey with her in the picture would be so deliberately cruel to their kids.
I’d rather procreate with Snooki than with that b*tch of a mother in the article.
Really? Snooki, who is prenant, will continue to appear on the show in the upcoming season.
Sure, she might name her kid something silly, but she won’t be naming it Mussolini or Il Duce, I’ll wager (she’s Italian).
