Either these people are Nazis or… no, they’re just Nazis. They certainly aren’t being ironic. Judging by the footage alone, I would say that parents of three children, Adolph Hitler, JoyceLynn Arian Nation and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie probably don’t know how to spell ‘irony.’
By now, you have likely heard about these kids. The boy, Adolph Hitler (3 years old), was in the news last month after his parents complained that a supermarket had refused to write his name on his birthday cake. The police just took the kids out of the family home today.
Interestingly, no reasons have been given for the removal. There’s no record of abuse or negligence.
The children’s parents have denied they are racist, yet their home is decorated in swastikas. The father said he chose the names to honour his German ancestry and because they’re unique. “They’re just names, you know,” he said. The news segment ends with his belief that people need to be more tolerant.
1) I don’t think that police should have the authority to remove children from a home without giving a reason. Also, I’m not sure one’s attitude toward the Holocaust should be the determining factor over custodial rights.
2) I hate bad liars. If you named your kid after a ruthless dictator just say so. Admit to being a racist waste of space and then move on. What bothered me most about this story wasn’t that the boy was named Hitler, it was that his parents tried to pass it off like it’s no big deal, like they picked the name out of a hat. Let’s face it, you didn’t randomly name your kids ‘Adolph Hitler’ and ‘Arian Nation’ because it was either (a) unique or (b) patriotic; you did it because you’re sympathetic to Nazi ideology.
Out with it already!
