Adolphus is a nice name for a boy

File this under B for "bad parents."

Naming Children for Nazis Puts Spotlight on the Father

That's putting it mildly.

And to think I have a friend who hated being named Nimrod. Better a Biblical Mighty Hunter than Adolf Hitler Campbell, Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, and JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell!

The children have been taken from their parents. But not, supposedly, for their names. It doesn't seem hard to imagine that Mr. Campbell is not a good father. Why? Because he's crazy!
Mr. Campbell had at least two of the children’s names legally changed in recent months. He dropped his son’s original first name, Antonio (Adolf and Hitler had been the middle names), so he is now Adolf Hitler Campbell, and fixed his daughter’s birth certificate to correct the spelling of “Aryan.” (He has said that Hinler is the correct spelling of Himmler — that history books are wrong.)
The Campbell's landlord is not renewing their lease and is quoted in the Times as saying: “They’re not destroying anything, the house is clean and they pay their rent on time,” he said. But, he added, “There comes a point when you say, ‘Enough is enough.’”

It's amazing the lengths that some losers who fancy themselves as intellectuals will go to get attention. These turds are in the process of ruining their children's lives. I am not totally convinced (yet) that this merits removing the children, but we'll see. I will say that if one or both of these children flip out one day and off their parents, I won't lose any sleep over their demise. I won't necessarily condone the act, but I'll understand.
