New Jersey Nazi Fights to Raise Children The Reich Way
Here’s a wild guess: If you’re in the midst of any kind of custody battle and want to ensure your best chance of seeing your child or children, showing up to court in a Nazi uniform probably isn’t the way to impress a judge. So at least give Heath Campbell, a New Jersey Nazi, credit for his, um, chutzpah in doing just that on Monday.
Monday’s court hearing—closed to the public—was to determine if Campbell can visit his 2-year-old son, who was removed from the home shortly after birth by state authorities citing reports of abuse in the household. Those reports emerged after his family drew national attention over the names of his young children: Adolf Hitler Campbell, 7, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 6, and 5-year-old Honzlynn Jeannie Campbell
“I’ve never abused my children, I only name my children and I don’t think it’s right anymore,” Heath Campbell said. He said he hasn’t seen any of his children in two years and that the three oldest children have been adopted by another family.
“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,” he said.
Asked whether he felt wearing the Nazi uniform, complete with a swastika patch on the arm and leather boots, into court would help or hurt his case, the father said it depended on the judge. “If they’re good judges and they’re good people, they’ll look within, not what’s on the outside,” he said.
Of course, on the inside, he’s still a Nazi.
