David Chappelle And The Amish

Comedian David Chappelle says he respects everybody’s beliefs, except Amish people, because their god is wrong. In the following edition of the lighter side of life, Chappelle stars in one of his funniest routines, discussing his interaction with the Amish in Ohio.

“All the Amish people out my way know me, too,” Chappelle says. “Not from television, obviously. They know me from the street, because when I see them horse and buggies, I pull the Porsche over and talk to them.” Here are more of his adventures, courtesy of Netflix Is A Joke.

Amish Covid

When it comes to actions taken to address the Covid-19 threat, hindsight is still very much underway. For your consideration: a story and outcome you probably aren’t hearing much about anywhere else. It takes place in the heart of Amish country. More from Sharyl Attkisson.

Amish Are Taking Over

Leftists in the media are so worried about controlling America’s politics that they are now clamoring about a takeover by the Amish. Why the concern? Amish have an average of seven children — far above the nationwide average of 1.7. Also, the Amish are concentrated in states that are politically competitive, like Pennsylvania and Ohio. More from Vincent James of The Red Elephants.

Time to Release Amish Farmer

The Food and Drug Administration jailed Amish farmer Samuel Girod for six years on charges of mislabeling one of the three “salves” he sold. Now, Girod, of Owingsville in Kentucky, has filed a petition with the U.S. Department of Justice pardon attorney.

Girod, 58, was sentenced to six years but his scheduled release is early April 2022, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

The petition is listed online as seeking a commutation or reduction of sentence, but the application indicates that Girod seeks a pardon. Girod, a member of the Old Order Amish faith, was sentenced in June 2017 for obstructing a federal agency and selling herbal health products that were not labeled as required by federal law. Here, journalist Sally Oh, who has written extensively about the case, calls for President Donald Trump to issue a pardon.

US Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., also is urging the pardon. Massie tweeted, “I hope @realDonaldTrump will pardon Sam. Six years for salve seems a little extreme. Yeah, I know it escalated and they threw the book at him, but that’s what it is… six years for mislabeled salve and now a family is without a father.
