Amish Mafia

Just a general question for the guys in PA and Ohio. If you have seen this show on Discovery Channel, is any of this for real? It looks kinda made up to me but I live in Arizona and have no idea of the real situation at all. Just curious.

Re: Amish Mafia

It's a JOKE... The Amish don't want their picture taken (against their religion practices), that's why the real Amish's faces are blurred out...

Re: Amish Mafia

I cant really see the Amish putting up with that. I dont believe a very religious community would want themselves portrayed as having a mafia involed?? It seems very staged like alot of Discovery channel shows are nowdays.

Re: Amish Mafia

Careful what you say! One of them might be reading this on their compressed air-powered computer, try Google you using a phone book, and go medieval on your heathen hiney!

Re: Amish Mafia

If you seen the eposide where they talked about the beard cutting, and the guy forcing the wives to sleep with him. Thats all true. That was all over our local news.

Witnesses Expected in Amish Beard-Cutting Trial | www.wtov9.com

That video is from our local news. It all really happened and is a the real deal with 'amish on amish hate crimes'

As for amish not wanting their pictures taken, we go to an area called 'amish country' all the time. They go nuts clamboring around you to get their pictures taken with you. They eat it up! We go up there all the time to go to the flea markets, look at antiques and eat the food.

Is the show real? No, its another discovery channel 'reality' show thats not real at all. But I'd say its based on some truth.

Re: Amish Mafia

It's a joke..Alot goes on in the Amish communty but you'll never hear about it unless someone stumbles upon it. Let's go on TV and film us collecting extorsion money, illegal gambling and protection. I wonder how long before Mr. Levi would get a visit from someone in the federal govenment with papers with the word RICO ACT on the top.
But it is funny. Don levi doing his best impersonation of Don Corleone sitting in a barn behind a desk... LOL

Re: Amish Mafia

Like toomanytoys said, the beard cutting thing happen a couple miles from where I live, it's for real and the footage of the hearing in Cleveland was real also. I also know they have a lot of party's and they change their clothes to "English" clothes for them. I know in Holmes County where Merlin is supposedly from, there are a lot of ovi arrest of Amish in their horse and buggy.

Re: Amish Mafia

It should be called "American's Are Really Desparate To Be Entertained"
It is a total load of crap. I'm an old Lancaster County boy, and I can tell you the whole thing is a joke.
You are better off watching Honey Boo Boo.
