WASHINGTON -- A New Jersey resident showed up in full Nazi uniform to a local court on Monday, charging that his political beliefs cannot legally be held against him as he fights to secure visitation rights to his son.

The father, Heath Campbell, named his children Adolf Hitler, Aryan Nation, Honzlynn and Heinrich Hons. Heinrich was taken into custody by social services in 2011, and Campbell is fighting for access.

He arrived at the court house in head-to-toe Nazi regalia, matching the swastika tattoo on his neck.

Contacted by The Jerusalem Post, the New Jersey court could not comment on the contents or even the existence of the case, as it involves children and is thus sealed from public record.

"Basically, what they're saying is because of my beliefs and I'm a Nazi, that us people don't have any constitutional rights to fight for our children," Campbell told an NBC10 crew before the hearing.

"Let me prove to the world that I am a good father," he said. "I've never abused my children, I only name my children and I don't think it's right anymore."
