Heath and Deborah Campbell, two Nazi parents from New Jersey, have lost custody of their four children. Adolf Hitler Campbell, 6, Joycelynn Aryan Nation, 5, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeanne, 6, as well as their new born baby, Hons, were taken into state custody.
The Associated Press reports that the Nazi parents’ trouble started in 2009 when they tried to have a “Happy Birthday Hitler” cake made for their son. Shortly after the incident Hitler and his siblings were taken away. The couples latest child, Hons, was born in November 2011. He was taken into custody just hours after his birth.
The Campbells have been fighting since the incident to put their family back together but a Superior Court judge ruled today that they would not be allowed to regain custody of their children.
In 2010, a court ruled that Heath and Deborah Campbell deliberately put their kids in danger by giving them names associated with abuse and violence. The court also said that it was worried about Heath’s violent past and that he was abusing the children, something that Heath vehemently denied.
Heath Campbell said:
“These kids weren’t abused. Our kids weren’t taken because of abuse. I’m honest about who I am and what I am… 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.”
New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services spokeswoman Kristine Brown said:
“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.”
Heath and Deborah have separated since the ordeal began in 2009.
