A judge denied custody of a 2-year-old boy to his Nazi-crazed father Heath Campbell on Thursday after the man arrived at court in a Nazi uniform.

Campbell has not seen his son since his birth.

The New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services said the boy was removed from Campbell’s care because of reports of violence within the home. Three of his other children have already been placed in foster homes, though he denies ever abusing them.

According to Campbell, the family was targeted because of their Nazi-inspired names: Adolf Hitler Campbell, 7; JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 6; and 5-year-old Honz­lynn Jeannie Campbell.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

Campbell is father to eight children with four women and lives off of government assistance.

The 40 year old, whose body is covered in swastika tattoos and who heads a neo-Nazi group, first made news in 2009 when a bakery refused to write his son Adolf Hitler’s name on a birthday cake.

The DYFS followed the request with an investigation, and a judge eventually removed three of the children from Campbell’s care.

Campbell has since become engaged to Bethanie Zito, who has a “Property of Campbell” tattoo on her arm and is expecting a baby girl. The couple plans to name her Eva Braun after Hitler’s long-term girlfriend.

"In July, I’m shipping [my fiancée] to a neo-Nazi compound down South,” Campbell said. “There’s no way in the world they’re going to find out where this child is.”
