Amish Mafia
Personal question | 3-11-2014 | edcoil

Posted on 03/11/2014 12:40:18 PM PDT by edcoil

We don't have many Amish here in CA but I have been watching this Amish Mafia show and they film these guys actually breaking the law and was wondering how come the cops have never show up and arrest anyone?

Staged, faked, quite simply not real. Read the bumpers before and after the show, they basically admit it’s fake though “based on testimonials”.

Have you ever seen a police car in a low-speed chase?

We have a lot of Amish and Mennonites here and this show is bogus. No way either of these groups would allow violence to happen in their name and then put it on TV.

Just look up pics of Levi Stoltzfus. He’s Amish connected but not a full member. The amish dress is purely for the show.

I used to know some “amish” like that. Their families were Amish but they had chosen to go their own way. They weren’t shunned or anything, they just didn’t live Amish.

I have the same question about Moonshiners.
Must be like Rasslin' - choreographed and staged.

The show is scripted and the people are acting-it is a TV show produced to make money, for the amusement of the audience-and it is amusing.

On account of it is TV. It is staged, scripted and put on TV to make conservative acting people look like hypocrites. A WHOLE lot like Jerry Springer ( the liberal moron of the decade). When did you EVER see the Italians or Jews touting their escapades on TV (excepting the acting media)? NEVER in a thousand years.

Real or Fake, pffft...

The important question is, will Lebanon Levi get to marry Ester, or will her double life make him finally walk away.

I enjoy this show like candy or soda...

OK, I got a Amish question. The wife and I just got home yesterday from Lido Beach, Florida. We were there for 6 days. There were quite a few Amish, 30 or more, hanging out on the beach staying in a pricey($300/night)hotel and sitting on the beach, walking, picking up sea shells, soaking in the hot tub, fishing, etc.? Do they go on vacation just like everybody else?

I grew up with Amish and Mennonites in NE Ohio. This show has got to be bogus. I never saw nothing but pacifism and decency from these folk. There was a year or two when Amish teenagers would get a little wild before they would join the church.

Yup it's crap. I couldn't even get past the TV ads for that show. They market it as if it may be reality TV but it's not. Just another attack on Christians.

I stopped watching that BIGFOOT reality show when I realized that IF these people ever found it, I wouldn't need to wait for the next episode to hear about it because it would be on the national news.

The only reality shows I watch are the ones that are real such as Diggers, Dangerous Grounds (the man will do anything for coffee), Ghost Adventures and The Dead Files.

All the reality TV shows are either fully scripted or at least have built-in scripted portions that the characters perform to build in some drama or whatever. It’s supposed to make it more watchable but only serves as a reminder that I need to continue channel surfing.

Even Duck Dynasty sucks these days. There’s no way that Si could be that much of an idiot. And there’s no way the family would put up with it.

The only thing the Amish do, at least the Amish here, is that when their kids turn 16 they are allowed to go out ‘into the world’ for a while to decide if they will stay Amish or leave the faith. They are given a choice. According to our Amish, most come back. Just a few don’t. We know this because two of our Jack Russell Terrorists come from our local Amish. A family there raises them. We were visiting once and a young Amish girl came driving up in a car. We asked about it and that is what we were told. Breaking Amish was probably built on that practice with a lot of embellishments to make it a show. Hollywood loves to poke fun at religious and/or country type folks.

“It’s supposed to make it more watchable but only serves as a reminder that I need to continue channel surfing.”

I don’t watch any of the reality stuff anymore. Stopped watching way back during MTV’s “Real World” series, when they kicked the one interesting character, “Puck”, off the show at the behest of an AIDS-ridden homo roommate that he had offended. I figured that it wasn’t going to be getting any better after that, and it hasn’t.

OK, I got a Amish question.

Are you sure they were Amish? They could have been strict order Mennonite, or even Church of the Brethren. All three groups dress very similar.
