    Granted, Adolph Hitler was a bad, bad man, but that was his name, not what he did.

    I think the parents are a bit on the "wrong side" by naming all three of their children based on the events that took place during the Holocaust, but I don't think their request for a name on a cake should be denied.

    That's like saying any boy name Jesus should die on a cross, because of his name.

    I don't think not having his name on a cake was quite the equivelant of what happened to the infamous Hitler. Still, maybe it's not about "oh, your kid's name is ADOLF HITLER! ZOMG" so much as the guy simply doesn't want to put the name "Adolf Hitler" on a cake. But seriously, they were asking for trouble when naming him after an infamous person like Hitler.

    MnemonicSyntax, I had a friend named Jesus. But it was pronounced like "Hey-zoos". Though I don't think he had trouble with cakes.

    All of their requests for anything ever should be denied based on their stupidity. This can't be real.

    I agree that the parent's are crazy, but at the same time there is no reason they shouldn't have been able to get the cake the way they wanted it. Now if they wanted a swastika put on it, then I would agree that the supermarket would then have an actual reason for not making the cake. Yeah the name is understandably iffy, and the kid will have a hard time growing up because of it, but it's not like the cake was a tribute to the Nazi leader himself, it was supposed to be a birthday cake for their child.

    Regardless of the truth of the article, not putting a name on a birthday cake is retarded, no matter what the name is.

    I imagine the same would hold true for his driver's license as well? You can't blame the kids due to the "stupidity" of the parents.

    No you can't blame the kid. I feel sorry for all 3 of their kids for a number of reasons.

    I would suggest they write the kid's name on the cake themselves, but it's very likely they are illiterate.

    Yeah, but the names seem to be chosen to project the message that these people are pretty much Nazis. Now they're trying to twist that to make it seem like they're the victims. A shop owner has every right to deny any requests, especially ones as bigoted and inflammatory as this one.

    This is prejudice. The parents should sue.

    Granted, what the original Adolf Hitler did was unacceptable. That doesn't mean this kid is going to be A.H. #2.

    Though... I am worried if the parents have Nazi merchandise...

    Is it discrimination based on race, gender or sexual preference?
    No.

    Like I said, the shop owner has every right to deny requests.

    I think the irony of a child named Adolph Hitler in a Transformers Shirt.. which was made by Hasbro.. which in turn was a company started by Two Brothers who happened to be Jewish.. that's where the real action is at..

    So no one has the right to refuse service?
    They could have done it in another store, or also have idiot who approve of the kids names have baked them a cake.
    If "Does the Hula" isn't an appropriate middle name, but "Aryan Nation" is?
    I'll just leave it as that.

    I have thought of the name Adolf Hitler as a name for a kid. I think it is very creative. IT would be funnier if the kid was jewish.

    No, it's worse than those. It's Prejudice based on a NAME.

    Prejudice based on a clash of opinions and the negative connotations of that name and shop not wanting to be associated with that name.

    Besides, isn't it a bit rich for someone who calls their children 'Arian Nation' and 'Adolf Hitler' to complain about discrimination?

    See, this is why notions like "treating everyone the same" always fall down. No, we shouldn't discriminate against people because of their skin colour, country of origin, hair colour or crap like that. But people who deliberately name their child Adolf Hitler deserve everything that happens to them. This isn't about equality, it's about a couple of tossers trying to use most people's innate decency against them. Seriously, what point are they trying to make? "Hey, we should be allowed to name our child after the most evil man in human history and insist someone put that name on a fucking cake"?
