The definition of morons

Don't get ticked at me for this one. Captain Ed has weighed in on it. So has JammieWearingFool. Basically, a pair of parents were very upset that their little boy couldn't have his birthday cake decorated the way they wanted it from a ShopRite. Why? Because the kid is named after Adolf Hitler:

All he's asking for is a little tolerance, says the father of 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell.

His son isn't going to grow up and do what Hitler did despite his horrifying name, Heath Campbell says.

The little boy named in honor of a genocidal tyrant became the center of controversy when a ShopRite supermarket in Greenwich, NJ, refused to inscribe his name on a cake for his birthday Sunday.

When the Easton, Pa., Times-Express wrote a story about the flare-up, there was a flurry of angry Internet postings.

Tolerance? Tolerance? Adolf Hitler was a genocidal maniac, and these morons agreed to name their kid after him. And they're ticked that the ShoRite refused to do their order. Got news for them, it's called a business decision, and the ShopRite is well within it's right to refuse service to anyone for virtually any reason, within reason. The ShopRite sounded off about this:

Karen Meleta, a spokeswoman for the chain, said the Campbells made a similar request last year - and it was denied then.

She said the dad previously asked for a swastika to be included in the decoration.

"We reserve the right not to print anything on the cake that we deem to be inappropriate," Meleta said. "We considered this inappropriate."

There you go. The store had the right to refuse the service. The story goes on to say that little Adolf got his cake the way his sicko parents wanted it through Wal-Mart. Why do I call them "sickos?" Heh:

The Campbells' other two children are named JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell.

Heath Campbell said he named his son after Hitler because he liked the name and because "no one else in the world would have that name."

Gee, does this genius know why no one in the world would name their kid Hitler, regardless of the fact that his sweet little cherub wouldn't follow in the dictator's footsteps? Here's a hint for the dim bulb. But, of course, he's not the only dim bulb in the box:

"I think people need to take their heads out of the cloud they've been in and start focusing on the future and not on the past," Nazi fan Heath Campbell, 35, who lives in Hunterdon County, NJ, said yesterday.

"There's a new president and he says it's time for a change. Well, then it's time for a change," he said. "They need to accept a name. A name's a name. The kid isn't going to grow up and do what [Hitler] did."

Hey Heath, you nutters may like to celebrate and give kudos to the Nazis, but the rest of public remembers the history of the Nazis so that we'll never let it happen again. But maybe Heath is just a fan of Hitler because he made the trains run on time, or some other sort of nonsense that Nazi fans throw out there to explain their idiotic hero worship of a bunch of genocidal thugs.

To each their own, but those same people who demand tolerance from us should pull their head out of their butt, and realize that there are certain issues that just won't garner any sort of sympathy on a mass scale. This is one of them.
