Lord Help you if your kid’s name is Dick Cheney Smith
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, January 14, 2009

The names are awful, but still, unless freedom of speech has been repealed, what's up in NJ?
State authorities have removed Adolf Hilter Campbell and his two sisters from their parents' home in Holland Township, township police Chief David Van Gilson said today.
I don't know if you remember the story of young Adolph Hitler Campbell's parent being rejected by Wal-Mart when they tried to have his name put on a birthday cake, but apparently that notoriety is what has precipitated all of this.

Odius name for a child? You bet. Is the kid stuck with it for life (or until he's old enough to legally change it)? Yes.

A reason for the NJ Division of Youth and Family Services to take the kids away?

If that's all they have, then I, for one, don't think so.

Some may think that naming a child something which will draw negative attention to them is a form of abuse, because other children - as children will - are sure to abuse them. Tell it to Moon Unit Zappa. Or Bronx Mowgli Wentz. Did anyone haul them into state custody?

And naming them after vicious totalitarian murderers? I certainly don't think it is too smart, but people do it without losing their children. And half the Middle East is naming their sons after Osama bin Laden. Let's round 'em up!

Obviously the child's name is one that is out of favor, and for very good reason.

But is that a crime? I have to wonder - and I have no basis for it right now other than a gut feeling - whether all of this has to do with those squishy "hate crimes" of which the left is so fond.
The [township police] chief didn't know why the children were taken but said his department received no reports of abuse or negligence.
So what was the legal reason the state used?

I sure will be interested to see what the state of New Jersey offers up as a reason for grabbing those kids. Shades of the recent "for the children" Texas polygamy child grab here.

True, but coming back into favor with each and every Pro-Palestinian demonstration.

The AP story I read quoted someone from the children’s services office as saying something along the lines of "We wouldn’t remove a child because of a name." So something happened. Did that something justify this? I still doubt it.

I am a bit torn on this one. On one hand, you have two really FUGGED UP parents who stuck this poor kid with a name almost as bad as, say, Jimmy Carter. (Okay - not that bad.) It is a form of abuse. After all, would YOU want to be forced to read Mein Kampf? It is almost as bad as being forced to read "Earth in the Lurch" by Log-as-Person Al Gore.

Then again, I hate to have the State come in and regulate names of people. I mean, after all, enough morons just elected a dipsh!t with the middle name of Hussein just seen years after other guys with the same names killed 3,000 Americans in New York, Washington, and Pennsylania. Stupidity is stupidity, no? But to have the State intervene? Touchy. Yep.

There was a story years ago in New York about a guy who went before a judge to have his name changed. The guy told the judge that he was fed up with the names and smirks and laghter at his name. The judge said to him, "Son, my name is Peter Schmuck. That’s my REAL name - not a changed name or pseudonym. Imagine going through like with the name of Judge Schmuck. I did it - and so can you. So your name change is denied.

True story. Really.
