A father who proudly boasts that he is a Nazi wants his newborn daughter, whom he named after Adolf Hilter's mistress, Eva Braun, back. Child services took the daughter from his latest baby mama, Bethanie Zito, after a mere two days. The dad, notorious "Nazi father" Heath Campbell, told the New York Daily News: "I’m not allowed to have children because I’m a Nazi." That doesn't stop him from having them though.
Campbell has nine kids from five different mothers -- he has custody of none of them. He brags:
I’ll stop making them when they stop taking them.
Ugh, can someone just stop him from having kids, then? Please?
Because I’m not going to mix with the opposite races and I’m not going to let my children mix, that gives them the right to steal my child?
The reality is that these children will be raised in god only knows what way -- obviously thinking they are Nazis and hating other races and religions -- and seriously we don't need any more crazies in the world. It's society that has to deal with them.
Campbell first came to attention when a cake maker refused to put the name of his son, Adolf Hitler Campbell, on a birthday cake. That baby was taken from him. As was a baby named Heinrich Hons (named after a Nazi commander). He also has children named JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 6, and 5-year-old Honzlynn Jeannie Campbell, all taken away from him -- not due to their names but violence in the home. Foster parents of the other children reported that they were violent too, having grown up with violence.
Campbell always wears full Nazi regalia to his custody hearings, which probably doesn't help matters.
These kids deserve a chance to grow up normal and integrate themselves into society in a productive, peaceful, and non-hating manner. And society deserves to have that too. Society's rights will trump the rights of an individual if that individual has proven he or she is going to trample upon society's rules.
A man who worships and emulates a man who gassed millions of people is not someone who deserves to pass down his beliefs to his kids. They deserve to grow up without this kind of influence.

Society deserves not to have to deal with whatever they will grow up to be like. Maybe some will turn out normal -- but maybe not. And with people able to get assault weapons at the drop of a hat, we don't need some little Nazi running around with hate in his heart.
And if he wanted the kids back so badly, I'd think he could change his ways. But he's incapable of it.
Now if only we can indeed stop him from continuing to breed. This guy (and his baby mamas) have taken up a huge amount of time and money in the courts and foster care system. So many people who want babies out there and can't have them, and this dude keeps on bringing them into the world. I hope these kids find better homes.
Do you think his kids should be taken from him?
