I smell another rant

OK so I read another article that got me all twisted up and I thought I'd share it with the world.

There is a couple in New Jersey with three kids. Each kid has a horribly awful name.

Adolf Hitler Campbell - 3 years old
JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell - 2 years old
Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell - almost one

This is the story about poor Adolf Hitler Campbell who couldn't get a personalized birthday cake for his third birthday. The cake company had some nerve not spelling out "Adolf Hitler" on this three-year-old's cake. It's just a name, for Heaven's sake. Alright, that's about as sarcastic as I can get on this story.

The parents try each year to get their child a cake. You'd think they would give up on this particular bakery and just stick with Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart doesn't show any biases, apparently.

In previous years, the parents attempted to order a personalized cake with swastikas. Dad doesn't seem to think there is a problem with this. He claims he is not racist, he was just raised not to socialize with other races (this is where I insert one of those emoticons with the raised eyebrow.)

He says it's just a name and people should get over it. Just because the real Hitler had such a past, doesn't mean his son will have the same fate. He says we have a new president so it's time for a change. Let's not look into the past, people, it's all about the future.

OK WE are not the ones naming our children after people in the past. Why didn't they just give their child the name "racist"? It's just another word after all. Just because I call you Racist Campbell, doesn't mean that you will turn out to be a racist, right?

And Aryan Nation? How do you figure that's a suitable name? Hitler brought on a genocide, the Aryan Nation was a group of white supremacists, but again, these are just names.

I feel bad for the youngest one. I've google'd and wikipedia'd but I've got no information on this Honsz Hinler person, aside from the fact that he was a Nazi. He just doesn't seem as significant as Hitler the racist leader, or Aryan Nation, the group of racists. He's just a Nazi with no other fame. Clearly that kid won't amount to anything.

Another question to ask ourselves (with another one of those inserted raised eyebrow emoticons) is this:

If a bakery will not allow "Adolf Hitler" inscribed on a cake, why does the government allow this on a birth certificate?

I never fail to be amazed/disappointed/stunned (delete where applicable) by the human race.

This couple are what, still under 30? Unless they're excellent history majors, they have NO idea on why they're name choices are so disgusting.

Just in the past? That's the same kind of attitude that ignores the fact that the Holocaust ever happened.

Maybe this family (that aren't racist, by all accounts) should be introduced to Rosa Parks, or Simon Wiesenthal and then say to these people they're not racist?

or Martin Luther King or Bob Marley even

These people fight for the right to exist, and this couple make it a wasted effort
