Here's an update update

Sadly they live in my town.

CharCharGabor Thu 15-Jan-09 00:42:42

sad Poor children.

mayorquimby Thu 15-Jan-09 10:03:25

i'd be interested to hear the reasons for the children being taken from them. if it has something to do with the beliefs/social values they are instilling in their children it could be a dangerous precedent.

shock The father in another site said that "I liked the name, and no-body else in the world would have that name".

cory Thu 15-Jan-09 14:41:13

could be for all sorts of reasons mayorquimby; only family I knew with similar views were also quite violent and had ideas of child discipline that were not consistent with modern views;

mayorquimby Thu 15-Jan-09 15:25:19

"could be for all sorts of reasons mayorquimby; only family I knew with similar views were also quite violent and had ideas of child discipline that were not consistent with modern views"

oh i accept that could be for any nukber of reasons, just the fact that it followed on so quickly from ther news story about the birthday cake would worry me that the relevant social service were being pressured by media/public opinion on the family and their views rather than any real abuse iyswim.

Strange as fuck

What I really want to know is
whether Hinler was meant to be Himmler..

LittleBella Sat 17-Jan-09 23:58:14

Oh dear

They do come across as a bit thick

Interesting that the children are allowed to be named - that wouldn't happen here.

edam Sun 18-Jan-09 00:35:27

I was puzzled by that bit, DaddyJ. Are they just too thick to even spell the name right or was there someone called Hinler in the Nazi heirarchy?

MmeLindt Sun 18-Jan-09 10:01:43

I have never heard of a Hinler, I presume they meant Himmler.

They don't appear to be particularly intelligent. Anyone naming a child Adolf Hitler or Aryan Nation must know that it is going to be controversial. To say that he just liked the name Adolf is ridiculous, of course he knew the connotations.

They cannot really expect anyone to believe that they are not racist when they ask a baker to put a swastika on a child's birthday cake.

One thing that struck me was that you can get Walmart to put a swastika on your birthday cake if you are so inclined. shock

fryalot Sun 18-Jan-09 10:06:42

mmelindt - it says that walmart are going to review their policy (wonder if they'll review their gun-running policy at the same time hmm)

lunavix Sun 18-Jan-09 10:11:01

It's one thing to name your child adolf hitler (which I'm not advocating, it seems like a beyond ignorant thing to do) but to name your child Aryan Nation?????

kerala Sun 18-Jan-09 10:18:24


Wasnt there a case recently in New Zealand where the judge removed a child who had a stupid name something like Tallulah does the Hula in Hawaii or something?

MmeLindt Sun 18-Jan-09 10:20:14

Yes, but I would have expected them to have already had a policy in place or at least that someone in the store with enough sense to refuse that request.

I suppose I am even more incredulous as I lived for 16 years in Germany and it is illegal to wear/print/distribute anything with Nazi symbols on.

fryalot Sun 18-Jan-09 10:21:46

mmelindt - yes, I know what you mean, you would think somebody would stand up and say "eh?" and wonder whether decorating birthday cakes with swastikas was really part of the Walmart code of conduct!

nooka Wed 21-Jan-09 04:52:40

Apparently Honszlynn Hinler is considered as a feminized version of Heinrich Himmler. They sound a rather troubled family. I suspect the cake was the most obvious manifestation of this.

SuperBunny Wed 21-Jan-09 05:18:13


Poor kids

OsmosisBanana Wed 21-Jan-09 07:27:18

beyond bizarre, you couldn't make it up

cornsilk Wed 21-Jan-09 07:40:11

It's almost like Munchhausen's. Calling the children by those names is a freakish attention seeking act.

DaddyJ Wed 21-Jan-09 21:21:18

Nooka, where did you read that?

Learn something new every day!

roseability Wed 21-Jan-09 21:38:50

Must be Daily mail readers

nooka Thu 22-Jan-09 04:23:02

I doubt they were reading the Daily Mail in New Jersey.

DaddyJ when this was first in the news I did a bit of Googling around it and found a couple of sites that stated this. Why you would need to invent a weird version of Himler's name is beyond me, but apparently there are people out there who feel he needs some sort of tribute.

PortAndLemon Thu 22-Jan-09 05:49:58

Yesh, because calling a girl Heinrich Himmler would just be silly. As opposed to... wait, hang on a minute...

roseability Thu 22-Jan-09 10:42:37

Twas a joke. Any excuse to dig at DM (which has Nazi roots). Sorry if i offended

nooka Fri 23-Jan-09 02:52:04

No offense (to me anyway grin) just seemed a bit out of nowhere IYSWIM. I didn't know the DM had any links to Nazism, although I think we do rather forget that many people in England were rather admiring of Fascist Germany prior to the war.
