Neo-Nazi Fights For Child Custody After All 9 Of His Kids Are Taken Away

A Neo-Nazi arrived at a New Jersey court wearing full Third Reich gear in an attempt to get custody of his newborn daughter, declaring that he will fight to eventually win back custody of all nine of his children. Heath Campbell sports a swastika tattoo and regularly wears Nazi clothing in public, while also giving his kids shockingly offensive names including Adolf Hitler Campbell and JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell. His latest child, named Eva Braun, was removed from his custody just two days after she was born last November.

In true irony, Campbell said he is the victim of “discrimination” by Child Protective Services because they are removing his children solely due to the names he gives them. “I’m not allowed to have children because I’m a Nazi. That’s what they’re saying,” he told the New York Daily News. “I’ll stop making them when they stop taking them.”

Campbell has nine children with five different women; his latest child was with girlfriend Bethanie Zito, but he also has several other children with his ex-wife, Deborah. New Jersey appeals court ruled in 2010 ruled there was sufficient evidence of abuse or neglect because of domestic violence in the home of Heath and Deborah.

A court hearing regarding the current case with newborn Eva has been scheduled for Monday. Zito told reporters that child services workers came and took their baby on the day she was supposed to leave the hospital. “I started screaming. I got hysterical. They kidnapped her,” she said. “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?”

Campbell, who is currently the leader of a group called “Hitler’s Order,” first made headlines in 2008 after asking a grocery store to write “Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler” on a cake for his son of the same name. The store refused to do this and Adolf was taken from his custody shortly after, but the Neo-Nazi still insists he’s a good father.

    As much as I hate to agree with him….I don’t see any reason for them taking his children away. Remember, this is America, people…he has the right to raise his children however he sees fit…and believe me, it is making me ill to have this opinion.

      This country has enough racist and really if we can prevent new racist, then i think its a good thing. Those kids have to be reprogrammed and learn how to fit into society. That man and woman should not ever be able to create another child. They should never be able to see those kids again.

      A fit parent does not raise their children to hate people because of their skin color or sexual orientation. He is not fit to parent!

      Abuse is a very good reason as is neglect.

      Giving your child Nazi-themed names is as bad as putting “Shithead” as a first name on their birth certificates. Child abuse is not always just a matter of physical harm.

      They didn’t go through the detail of the abuse. The oldest son was 4 when they first took him away… The child was very violence at a young age. He told the social worker he will her and try to attack… He was trained to hate Black, Jews and women… He was abusive to his younger sisters.. The kid is now 10 and I hope they was able to rehabilitates him.

    Debra, I guess that you did not read the whole story like the part that said,

    sufficient evidence of abuse or neglect because of domestic violence in the home of Heath and Deborah.

    What a tragically disturbed individual!

    I see EVERY reason to take his kids away. He is teaching them hate. He is telling them it’s OK to not associate with other races, colors and nationalities. He is, indirectly, perhaps directly, teaching his children that it’s OK to BURN, SHOOT, POISON, RAPE, MOLEST people of Jewish descent and others. Someone shoot him in the middle of the forehead and put him out of the childrens’ misery.

      So every christian who is teaching their children to hate gays because it is in the bible should lose their children?

        Did you miss the part about domestic violence?


    I bet this fool does not have one ounce of German in his blood. And wait till he finds out his skin tone is a gentic mutation. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/12/15/AR2005121501728.html

    Anyone ever notice racists aren’t ever smiling or happy. At least when us negros were slaves we sang and looked happy. These people are miserable all their lives and they treat their wives and children the same.
