Parents in Court Demanding Visitation Rights Despite Being Nazis

If a person in this day and age espouses terrible ideas—is that enough for government to take their children ipso facto?

Heath Campbell, 40, father to Adolf Hitler Campbell, 7, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 6, Honzlynn Jeannie Campbell, 5, and Heinrich Hons Campbell, 18 months, was decked in a convincing—though historically mixed—Nazi getup, complete with knee-high black boots and swastika patches, as he attended a hearing in Flemington, New Jersey court, seeking to secure visitation rights to his youngest son.

Campbell, who also has a large swastika tattooed on his neck (for the beach?), was trying to win the rights to see little Heinrich Hons, who was taken away by social services shortly after he was born, in November 2011.

Adolf Hitler Campbell and two siblings had been taken into the agency’s care in 2009. The children have been put up for adoption and not seen by their parents in two years. A court denied the Campbells’ appeal to have their children returned last year.

In court filings, child services said the Campbell children were in danger because of violence in the home. Later, the parents were found not guilty of child abuse, but they still did not receive their children from protective custody.

Court records show that the oldest child, Adolf, made frequent threats of killing people. And, according to reports, Mrs. Canpbell once gave a note to her neighbor saying she was terrified of her husband, who was threatening to kill her.

Nazis are like that.

“I’m going to tell the judge I love my children. I wanna’ be a father, let me be it,” Heath Campbell told NBC10 before the hearing.

The Campbells, who say they are not neo-Nazis, made headlines in January 2008 when a supermarket refused to decorate a birthday cake for their son, decorated with the line “Happy birthday Adolf Hitler.”

“Basically, what they’re saying is because of my beliefs and I’m a Nazi, that us people don’t have any constitutional rights to fight for our children.”

Bethanie White, a member of his organization ‘Hitler’s Order’, was with Campbell at court – also covered in swastikas.

Asked whether dressing up as a Nazi was likely to help his case, Campbell was confident it would not be held against him: “If they’re good judges and they’re good people, they’ll look within, not what’s on the outside.”

Now, there’s a good question for y’all: if a person in this day and age espouses terrible ideas—is that enough for government to take away their children ipso facto? What if they endorse metzitza b’peh? What if they refuse to inoculate their children, or give them blood transfusions? Makes you think.

  1. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Obama is already trying to find out if they will promise to vote Democratic in 2014 before he decides to have holder "defend their civil rights".

  2. Robin Yvonne says:

    They should have taken all the children away from them permanently and then sterilized the parents. That would be the humane thing to do.

  3. This is a difficult question, indeed. The father should not be denied his parental rights solely on the basis of his political views, regardless of how despicable they may be. The case should be viewed on the basis of the facts. Can he provide a suitable and safe environment for his children? The fact that he chose to show up at court in a Nazi uniform itself is not an issue, but in a much larger sense it calls his judgment into question. That is a legitimate consideration for the courts. I am reminded of the true story of two twin brothers who were separated at birth. One grew up in a loving Jewish home, and he became observant when he was older. The other grew up and became a neo-Nazi. They were still brothers by birth and met years later. How do you reconcile something such as that?

    Oh My God ! I Couldn’t Even Read This. I Can Not Believe The Hate Going On Inside Of Peoples Minds. It Is Just Way Beyond My Scope Of Thinking. Call Me Different But, Where’s The Love In This World Today? Cold Hearts And Minds. Lord Come Quick And Take Us Out Of Here.

  5. Les Le Gear says:

    He's a lunatic. He should have been sterilized so he couldn't have children. He needs a pre frontal lobotomy asap.

  6. Pat Craig says:

    They took away their children and later the court said they were not guilty of child abuse. So if they are not guilty of child abuse why have they not given the children back? I don't agree at all with their political views but this is America and we do have freedom of speech whether you like what another is saying or not, they have that right. How is it right the government takes away their children if they are not guilty of child abuse? What other reasons will the government take away our children from us?

  7. Pat Craig says:

    No, they do not deserve their children taken away from them if they are not guilty of child abuse. That is not humane at all. Who are you to decide that? Just because they stand for something you don't? That is what this country was built on…freedom.

  8. Grace Acosta says:

    "We're not Neo-Nazis, we're Nazis." Um, and that's somehow supposed to make me feel better?

  9. Hitler was just a misunderstood artist. Rejection is the most brutal of human conditions and young Adolf underwent the metamorphosis into the monster of our historical lore by his rejection from art school. See him his happiest and read all about it at.
