Heath and Deborah Campbell seem like normal people. Until you hear the bat shazbot insane names they've given to their children. There's Adolf Hitler Campbell, 3; Joycelynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 2; and little Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell (a feminization of Heinrich Himmler), just eight months. What kind of monster, you might ask, would give their children such names? Names that simultaneously pay tribute to murderers while marking the children as social pariahs? Tragically moronic monsters, as it turns out. Says Heath:
"They say, 'He (Hitler) killed all those people.' I say, 'You're living in the wrong decade. That Hitler's gone. They're just names, you know. Yeah, they (Nazis) were bad people back then. But my kids are little. They're not going to grow up like that. It's not fair to my children. How can a name be offensive?"
Gee, I don't know Heath. You've got me. People are so uptight about naming children about history's most despicable madmen. But, in his defense, Heath does practice some pretty progressive parenting:
Heath Campbell said he doesn't want to force his views on his children, in part because he had views forced on him. He said he also teaches them nonviolence.
Abusive guardians, Heath Campbell said, used Bible verses to teach him to distrust blacks. If he questioned the guardians, he said, he was hit. He acknowledged he couldn't challenge the guardians' views.
He said Adolf Hitler, Aryan Nation and Hinler would be able to make their own decisions about race.
Not that he hasn't front-ended the question a little by naming them after freakin' Nazis. Somebody needs to arrest these clowns for child abuse.
