Famous Amish

23 July 2010 @ 11:14

I don’t know if you heard about the police chase of an Amish lad in New York the other day, but the story has made me rethink my mocking of Homeland Security and it’s freaskish head Janet Incompetano and their warnings about the domestic dangers posed by Christian Fundamentalists.  Steven Givler’s thinking is simpatico with mine

From his reporting, we learn:

As you may have read earlier this week, (Click on the title of this post for the full story.) Levi Detweiler, a 17-year-old Amish youth, allegedly led sheriff’s deputies in Leon, New York, on a mile-long chase, after running a stop sign in his horse and buggy and refusing to pull over. He overturned the buggy attempting to corner too quickly, and continued afoot before being caught.

What clearer indication could we ask for that Christian fundamentalists comprise a growing threat to our nation’s domestic tranquility? A number of questions immediately leap to the analytical mind when faced with an incident such as this. “Why did Mr. Detweiler flee the police?” “Was Mr. Detweiler en route to or from a secret meeting with other antigovernment radicals?” “Was his buggy stocked with explosives or subversive posters?” And “What’s with the Dumb and Dumber haircut?”

Please do take the time to click here and read the rest of Steven’s report and his very cogent analysis of it all.  It makes me want to turn myself in…and I ain’t even a Christian Fundamentalist.

SIDENOTE: For those of you unfamiliar with the methods and habits of the Amish, here’s a little lesson in their women:

Typical Amish gal…
