Little Boy Hitler

"In a living room decorated with war books, German combat knives and swastikas, a 2-year-old boy, blond and blue-eyed, played with a plastic dinner set.

The boy, asked his name, put down a tiny plate and ran behind his father's leg. He flashed a shy smile but wouldn't answer. Heath Campbell, 35, the boy's father, encouraged him.

"Say Adolf," said Campbell, a Holocaust denier who has three children named for Nazism.

Again, the boy wouldn't answer. It wasn't the first time the name caused hesitation.

Adolf Hitler Campbell -- it's indeed the name on his birth certificate -- turns 3 today, and the Campbell family believes the boy has been mistreated. A local supermarket refused to make a birthday cake with "Adolf Hitler" on it." (here)

MSM is all agitated over the story. Jewish organizations commended the supermarket which refused to write "Happy Birthday, Adolf Hitler". The ever smirking Rachel Maddow weighs in with a dig at Walmart for agreeing to comply with the pathetic parents' wish.

I don't know how to think of this matter. I don't know who is right or wrong, the supermarket which refused or Walmart that obliged.

But I do wonder. Here are a pair of American parents indoctrinating their kids in the ethics of genocide, and American media takes time and energy to cover the whole thing with much outraged virtue. Yet never have I seen even remotely the least bit of concern, consternation or even educated awareness, when evidence comes out suggesting that many Palestinian parents indoctrinate their children into genocidal achievements, as we can see in this video.

Of course it is always more interesting when your own people are doing something so spectacularly stupid as to glorify Hitler. But the incongruity between the hullabaloo on this story, which involves just a decorated cake, and the silence on the other stories, which is done in the service of exploding bodies, is puzzling.

There was once a fashion among Palestinian and Jordanian Arabs to call their children "Eichmann". This started at the time of his trial, in the early 1960's.

What happened to all these little Eichmanns?
