Analysis: Put Your Irony Condoms On

All you need to know about Heath Campbell is that he named his kids after Nazis, including a three year old called Adolf Hitler. He and his teeth are on a media campaign to win back his kids who were taken away after a NJ Shoprite refused to inscribe the three year old’s name on his birthday cake.

Naturally, FOX News sent over their only black reporter who is not a weather anchor in order to incite some blatant irony and add to the ever-plunging deluge of inadvertently helping the bad guy type of stories that outlets like FOX love to exploit.

Yeah, I think it is funny too when Campbell walks haphazardly next to Ms. Jordan and stumbles when he is trying to describe the state of his daughters hair. Because what he wants to say is, “her hair is nappy, like one of your peoples”. But he is being rightfully tarred and feathered, 21st century style, and instead he is forced to articulate and think( simultaneously, none-the-less) without the crap propaganda and hatred.

Talking Bout My Generation

A simple search using the intervals, asshole + metalhead, will easily compact and explain a guy like Heath Campbell’s life and  participation as a member of any significant cultural movement. And while it’s easy to make fun of his ankle length leather jacket, often reserved for dudes who mean to say “Heck, I’m in this  for life now. This mother was expensive.”, Mr. Campbell’s involvement with white supremacy is more troubling.

People like Campbell have the worst type of lives, but not in the way that yields sympathy. Before they even become aware of the self-induced poverty that they are brought up in, they’ve been actively taught to blame other people and often bizarre conspiracies on why their mothers nickname is quarter-snatch. Campbell, of course, contests that it was fear of duplication that forced him to name his three children after three of histories more atrocious figures and one make believe group of people. But, again, Campbell is showing that hint of originality that forced him out towards the margin in the first place.

FOX has been the only large national outlet to cover this story. Folks in New Zealand , Australia, and the UK picked it up  because they think wild, ballsy, and retarded are the three characteristics of American DNA. Exposure like this, while it’s purpose is to incite mock-outrage while scratching our voyeuristic itch to see other peoples fucked up lives, is harmful because Campbell gets to use the tube to plead his case. Period.

Leave this guy in his hole and alone with his misery, his restraining orders, spotty black-out drinking and wife raping and stop allowing racists to creep into our collective conscious. They are participants in the laziest type of activity– their beliefs and power are only as strong as the names they name them.

And that’s not strong!!
