Muslim is insulted, head of ice cream company resigns in Montana

Be resolute in your stand to protect the 1st amendment.  Without it, we are at the mercy of theological tyrants.  Matt Schaeffer took the bullet, but in the process lost his livelyhood to the hecklers veto, courtesy of Islam.  More of this is coming...wait for it...

From the Billings Gazette September 28 by Jan Falstad

Facebook trouble for a Montana company

The president of Livingston-based Wilcoxson’s Ice Cream, which runs a plant in Billings, offered to resign Friday following social-media fury over a one-sentence Facebook response.

Although he insists he meant nothing derogatory, Wilcoxson’s president Matt Schaeffer, of Livingston, offered to step down to save the company from fallout over his response to a Muslim customer who asked if the company used any gelatin containing pork in its ice cream.

The meltdown started the evening of Sept. 21 when a man in Sheridan, Wyo., posted a Facebook comment about Wilcoxson’s “cookies and cream” flavor ice cream containing gelatin.

Does it contain pork? I am a Muslim and love your ice cream and when I read it today I was shocked. I look forward to you writing me back. Thank you. If possible, if it does have pork gelatin please tell me what flavors do so I can avoid them thanks again :)

A valid question for anyone trying to respect one's religiosity.

Schaeffer said he was tired that night, was responding to a series of posts and only read to the “pork” part of the sentence before clicking on the writer’s Facebook page where he saw a map of Pakistan and quickly wrote this response:

We don’t deliver outside of Montana, certainly not Pakistan.”

And the insult takes shape in the mind of the Muslim.

Schaeffer said he didn’t see the address of Sheridan, Wyo., because he didn’t read that far.

“There was a map on his Facebook page with a map of Pakistan, with a balloon in the center. I presumed he was sending this from Pakistan,” Schaeffer said.

The commenter took offense and wrote:

What are u talking about!!??? I think.ur comment is rude to assume I live in Pakistan.”

The man said “just because of your ignorance, I wont buy your ice cream and definitely wont recommend it.”

If blasphemy laws were enacted, Schaeffer would go to jail for making a wrong assumption, and the reason is below...

Alisa Prigge, of Denver, who said she and her husband are friends of the Wyoming man who asked about the gelatin, sent a letter on Sept. 26 to Wilcoxson’s calling for a boycott to “stand up to racism, ignorance and intolerance” and sent copies to Montana reporters. She said that her friend is an American citizen who was born in this country.

Schaeffers comment is now racist (what race are Muslims again?), ignorant and intolerant.  We have demonization of the kuffir!

Prigge said she hadn’t talked to Schaeffer to hear his version of the story before she sent the email.

This was an honest mistake, Schaeffer said, adding he apologized to the man on Wednesday and again Friday during an interview with

It was wrong. I screwed up,” he said, calling himself a social-media beginner who has only used Facebook for four months. Schaeffer actually took over the Wilcoxson’s Facebook page from a fan who created it after the fan said it became too much work.

Good dhimmi.
