Can You Name >5 Unvaxxed Amish Who Died from Covid?

The Amish didn't lockdown, social distance, mask, or take a vaccine. It was business as usual. Few died. I offered $2,500 for anyone who could name >5 Amish who died. No takers. Just excuses.

People who live in Amish communities: No vaccines, No masks. No deaths. Nobody could name 5 Amish who died from COVID in Lancaster, PA which is the largest Amish community in the US. Whoops! I offered $2,500 and all I got was excuses on why they couldn't give me a single name of anyone who died.

Executive summary

The traditional Amish do not vaccinate. And they are a tight knit community. So they are the perfect placebo cohort. We just compare the rate of death of the unvaccinated Amish with the rate of death of people in the same area.

I recently learned that it's likely that in the >50,000 person unvaccinated Amish community in Lancaster, PA there are less than a handful of people who died from COVID. Lancaster is the largest Amish community in the US.


If nobody in the world can name more than 5 Amish unvaxxed people who died in Lancaster, PA, it means the entire pandemic response (lockdowns, business closures, school closures, church closures, testing, masking, social distancing, mandates, not testing people for immunity before vaccination, and vaccination) was completely unnecessary and counterproductive. Whoops!

So my « Can you name >5? » challenge posted to Twitter is an objective test that should be trivial to win if the medical journal papers are right about there being a pandemic of the unvaccinated.

So far, nobody could name >5 unvaxxed Amish people in Lancaster, PA who died from COVID. In fact, they can't name anyone. Zero.

People just came up with excuses, referenced vaccinated Amish who died, thought a Mennonite is the same thing as an Amish person, etc. The list of excuses was endless. The number of qualifying names? Zero.

If you want objective proof that our society was destroyed for nothing, my Amish bet is your proof.

The Amish did nothing and their death toll was 30X lower than ours. They operated as if nothing happened.

Will we learn from them? Not a chance.

The CDC will never do a study on the Amish; it would be too embarrassing for them. It would show the world that the CDC everything they demanded of us was both harmful and unnecessary; it made things worse. And the stuff the CDC said to not do? Well, that's what the Amish did. You know; like that horse paste.

Instead of handing over control in the next pandemic to the WHO, we'd actually be better off putting the Amish in charge.

The bottom line is this. They can throw all the technical papers in the world at you explaining how the Amish are dying in droves, but if they can't actually come up with the names of >5 unvaccinated Amish people who died from COVID in Lancaster, PA since the start of the pandemic, you should tell them where they can stick their « scientific studies » and their stupid COVID mitigation policies.

The « must watch » video

This will give the needed background. It's a short 5 minute video featuring Sharyl Attkisson.

Amish Covid - Full Measure
Amish Covid | Full Measure
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 probabl...

Nobody in mainstream media will touch this story because it completely blows up the narrative. It shows that all the COVID interventions were completely unnecessary! The Amish returned to normal in May 2020. Read that again.

The Amish achieved herd immunity before the vaccines were even available.

They also have zero autism (except if the person is adopted) for the people who eschew vaccination.

Even if the vaccine worked and was safe, there was simply no reason for them to take the vaccine because 90% had already been infected in 2020. Taking a vaccine after you've already got natural immunity is nonsensical and counterproductive. However, in the US, we were told to get the vaccine even if we recovered from COVID. Very dumb.

How did they achieve herd immunity so fast? They did the opposite of what the CDC recommended; they lived their lives normally and used drugs like ivermectin if they got sick.

Today, more than 3 years later, you still can't find more than a handful who died from COVID.

To drive that point home with people, I am making a $2,500 offer to the first person who can find more than a handful of unvaxxed Amish who died from COVID in Lancaster, PA during the entire pandemic.

Lancaster, PA

Lancaster has 500,000 and 50,000 unvaxxed Amish. As far as I know, no more than 5 died from symptoms consistent with COVID and that number may be high. The actual number may be 0 for all I know; the two names I have are suspected COVID.

When I first heard about the Amish community in Lancaster, I immediately thought that I could simply search the  national death index and compare the rise in deaths in 2021 vs. 2020 in Lancaster vs. surrounding counties and I'd know instantly whether the Amish had a lower or higher death rate! Unfortunately, the unvaxxed Amish are only 10% of the Lancaster county population and they don't break down deaths by the full FIPS code; if they did, we could do the analysis in a heartbeat by comparing Salisbury with Ephrata all-cause mortality. I was soooo close!

In  downloading the 2.7GB death data for 2021, I did discover that they blank out the county (and many other fields). This is their idea of « data transparency. »

It's as if they don't want you ever to learn the truth. Can you imagine that?! One thing I've learned is if they have to keep the data hidden, there's a reason.

So you can't compare the death rates in Lancaster, PA vs. surrounding counties due to too much noise. Darn. I was soooooooo close.

But when I heard that there were less than 5 COVID deaths in 50,000 people over the entire pandemic, I knew I had a winner.

A simple objective test that nobody can meet that proves all the stuff we were told to do actually made things about 30X worse.

My $2,500 challenge to show us >5 names

There were at least two fully unvaccinated Amish people who died of COVID in Lancaster, PA. But as far as I know, there aren't more than 5. So this contest is theoretically winnable (since nobody has perfect knowledge). There is no trick. Any reasonable evidence is acceptable (e.g., their Amish neighbors vouch that they were unvaxxed). If the threshold was 2 deaths, I'd win it myself. But I couldn't find more than 5 fully unvaccinated Amish who met the contest criteria below:

It's very simple to prove that the US response to COVID was completely inept. There are >50,000 unvaccinated Amish in Lancaster, PA. I will pay $2,500 to the first person who can prove there were more than 5 of them who died from COVID from 2020 to the present. You have to post…


This paper couldn't find any Amish COVID deaths in Lancaster, PA.

Termination of the offer

The contest ends May 30, 2023 and I will reveal the two names I know just to prove it was possible to win if there were more deaths.

The excuses

I got everything except names. Nobody came up with a single name.  You can read the entire Twitter thread here. They pointed me to various junk science papers claiming the unvaxxed were more likely to die from COVID, the Amish were dying in droves, etc. If any of those papers were true, they'd be able to easily win my contest. One person pointed me to a single Mennonite woman who died and claimed I should pay up. You can read the responses and you'll shake your head.

Some said they can't give the names of people who died because that would be a HIPAA violation. Interesting! Have you ever seen an obit in the newspaper where the name was redacted for medical privacy reasons? HIPAA only applies if the person is a patient of theirs and the patient gave them medical info as part of the medical practice. As far as I know, none of these people claimed to be treating the Amish.

This is all bullshit. All they have to do is pick up the phone and talk to their Amish friends and say, « Hey, do you know anyone who was unvaxxed and died from COVID? »

I did that, but I just got 2 names.

The whole thing was to distract from the fact that they can't come up with >5 names because no more than 5 Amish people died from COVID. That's inescapable.
