Nazi parents Heath and Deborah Campbell have been denied custody of their four children, all of whom have names inspired by the Nazi party and its members. Adolf Hitler Campbell, 6, Joycelynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 5, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, 4, were taken from the couple after a local grocer refused to decorate a birthday cake with little Adolph’s name. Their fourth child, Hons Campbell, was taken by state officials shortly after the baby’s birth in November.
A spokesperson for the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services explained that “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.” According to ABC News, the couple have a history of domestic violence, and their oldest son, Adolph, has been known to threaten other children.
Deborah and Heath Campbell, the latter of whom is illiterate, are none too pleased with the ruling handed down by a Superior Court judge on Thursday. “These kids weren’t abused. Our kids weren’t taken because of abuse. I’m honest about who I am and what I am,” Heath Campbell remarked. “If I have to give up my Nazism, then so be it. I’ll do it. “[The children are] more my heart and soul and everything than anything.”
Heath reportedly has a history of domestic violence. One of his ex-wives, who moved to an Air Force base with family to escape his clutches, currently has a restraining order against him.
Due to a gag order, lawyers one both sides of the fence cannot comment on the case. The Campbells, however, plan to appeal the ruling as soon as possible.
