The founder of a New Jersey Nazi group insisted his wearing an accompanying uniform should not impact his chances of regaining custody of his four children, WCAU-TV reported on Monday.

“I’m going to tell the judge, I love my children,” “Hitler’s Order” leader Heath Campbell said to the station before a closed-doors hearing in Flemington, New Jersey. “I wanna be a father, let me be it.”

Campbell was set to appear to argue for visitation rights with his 2-year-old son Hons Campbell, who was seized by the state Division of Youth and Family Services when he was 16 hours old in November 2011. Officials cited allegations of abuse by Heath Campbell and his wife, Deborah Campbell, against their other three children.

Heath Campbell said to WCAU that she had given up her custody rights following the couple’s separation.

“I’ve never abused my children,” Heath Campbell told the station regarding the charges. “I only name my children and I don’t think it’s right anymore.”

The other children — 7-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell, 6-year-old JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and 5-year-old Honzlynn Jeannie Campbell — were taken from the couple’s custody in January 2009, a month after the couple got into a disagreement with a local bakery when it refused to write Adolf Hiler Campbell’s name on a birthday cake.
