Nazi Named Children Placed Into State Custody

Three beautiful children with hateful names. The family made infamous when a supermarket refused to make a birthday cake with their 3-year-old son's name, Adolf Hitler Campbell, on it is back in the headlines. The little boy and his two younger sisters, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell were placed in custody of the state on Tuesday. No comment has been made as to why the children were taken from their parents. Do you think moms and dads deserve the freedom to name their children anything?

That is just ridiculous. Yeah, you have the right to name your child whatever you want, but I bet they never once thought about their children's future and how they would feel once they learned about the origins of their names.

This article made me so mad when I read it! Naming your children like that is just child abuse in itself! Growing up the children don't have say in their names they would have to wait until they are 18 to legally change it! Just cruel. There are so many studies on the effects of names!

To make things clear, I dont agree with these names or anyone who names their children things that are hurtful, mean, or ridiculous. I hesitate to say we should regulate things like some countries, but sometimes it gets totally out of control. There was a kid born in Oklahoma in 2007, I know becuaes my daughter was and they gave us a book listing EVERY name given, named Swastika, and I makes me angry that people do things like this to their children. I really think there are underlying issues you're lying about if you give your child such a hateful name, and most kids who grow up being taught hateful things BELIEVE hateful things. I agree that they looked greasy and unwashed, i noticed it, but thats hardly that telling. Lots of people dont shower every day, wear deoderant, clean their clothes each use, etc, or do things that alot of people consider neccessaties. But, for anyone who doesnt know anyone who has gone through anything with CPS, once you are "targeted", they go to town on you. A friend of mine's 2 year old daughter was leaning up against the front room window of her apartment, and it broke, sending her flying through. She managed to be okay with a goose egg on her forehead and minor scrapes, but CPS went absolutely beserk. They started making several visits a week, and when tehy come they check EVERYTHING. They look in your fridge and you are chastised and marked down if you dont have the right amount of "good" foods vs "bad" foods, they check the tap water regardless of whether you drink it or not and if its not up to par, you get marked down for not having a water filter, they check your bath tub and if there is any soap residue or dust in the corners, its amark agasint you. If they start finding enoough marks, there goes your kids. It really isnt that hard these days to get your kid taken away. Have you all forgot all of the news stories about children being removed and police called becuase someone spanked their kids in a store? Its a shame too, becuase of all the kids who legitimatly need help becuase of abuse, drug and physical, and mental, and neglect, and cps spends their time bullying people.

As the saying, a person should not be judged based on the color of their skin, so it shall be with the name. A person is much deeper than a name. Some may say, "well these kids would never get elected with a name like that" but that is also what they said about Obama. I say to these kids, rock your name and don't be ashamed...

Love all the attention I got, wow,I simply cannot make 1 comment without people jumping down my throat. I mean ethnic names that are not common names. Things that people have to look up in history. Not a name others have heard before and I don't like the way you are implying you know what I meant by ethnic, tiabia. That little boy will be known as Adolf Campbellthe girls as honzslynn and joycelyn campbell. Aryan... well it has more history that the bad stuff portrayed. Arya mean noble or honorable... http: //en .wikipedia. org/wiki/Aryan

Adolph Hiltler is a name, so maybe, but Aryan Nation is a very specific explicit title. To have your children carrying names representing of such violence and crimes against humanity is very different then naming your children Apple or even Pilotinspektor. I wouldn't be surprised if there were other things going on in that home.

As stated in the story, no comment was made as to why the children were taken. I'm fairly certain it was for reasons other than their truly terrible names. I feel bad for the kids.
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 7 years
This is 100% beyond unacceptable. If the children are in danger or being hurt, take them. That's it. I am disgusted.

Though I have no idea of whether the names were the only reason the children were taken away, I do feel bad for those kids and their future. Adolf Hitler will probably miss out on many a job opportunity due to his name whether our country protects against that or not. I just can't see that not becoming a hindrance to them in the future.

I remember these people from the story with the birthday cake. The dad said he named his son Adolf Hitler because no one else would have that name. Uh, duh. There's reason for that!!! There is something else going on because this would have been dealt with when the kids were born if it was just the names. To me it seems like an incredibly cruel thing to do to your kids. Far, far worse than celebrity baby names like Pilot Inspector (although some of those are still terrible and mean).

hainan, i'm not ignorant at all. i just think the dad, mom and little adolf look a little greasy. i still think they need a bath, and perhaps a cleansing of the mind and spirit as well...and to compare naming your child barack obama to someone like adolf hitler is actually quite telling in how you view the world. really?

They may not be nazis, doesn't mean that they aren't nazi sympathizers which is equally bad. Hate breeds hate.

Huh. Is "Aryan Nation" really comparable to an "ethnic" name?

Hainan57: I have a question regarding ethnic names: all names are ethnic, they all come from the root of a culture or language so what is meant by ethnic names?
tiabia tiabia 7 years
Hainan, you have GOT to be kidding me. Parents can indeed name their children whatever the want, however, naming your child Aryan Nation sends up an immediate red flag. There is a completely different context to being named something that you would describe as "ethnic" versus something like "Aryan Nation". I almost feel sorry if you can't see the difference.

People can name their kids whatever they choose. But as they said in the video, they're not Nazi's so what other reason would they have to give their kids those names? It's just weird to me and I don't buy that they just liked the names. Sure the kids look happy, but you have to wonder what they will think about their names once they start learning history - that is if the parents aren't already teaching them a few things about history.

Are they taken only based on their names? Or are they neglected and abused by the parents (well, the names imho are very inappropriate)? Oh poor kids.
