Fred LeFebvre of 1370 WSPD AM and Feedom of Speech

I have noticed that Fred LeFebvre of WSPD AM radio station in Toledo, Ohio uses a signature phrase attachment to his posted comments over on the internet site of SwampBubbles where he goes by the user name of FREDERICKTHEENTERTAINER.

The "signature"  attached by Fred LeFebvre is as follows:
"Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted."
Just one example in the use of that signature attachment may be found in the comment made by Fred LeFebvre when he wrote,
"I am ALL FOR citizens united. The story points out that even with citizens united however that corporations don't hold any more sway than unions do which has always been the big crying jag thrown by union members. You haven't really been on the board long enough to know what I think so you might just ask next time. I am all for all types of free speech. And more is spelled m-o-r-e in case you use it again, unless you were trying to spell moron, in which case you don't need help."
that you can see for yourself in the following link to the "NOT THE STORY LINE YOU'VE HEARD" SwampBubbles message thread.

What I find interesting that Fred LeFebvre uses the terminology "freedom of speech" in his signature attachment in a way that seems to me that it infers that the First Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the user's speech anywhere and everywhere from being abridged by anyone in anyplace under any and all conditions. The fact of the matter is that the aforementioned inference is nowhere close to the truth. Indeed, the real fact is that the First Amendment to the United States Constitution only protects the free exercise of speech from being abridged by the government of the United States of America.

Freedom of speech in the United States as protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution does not apply to internet social media or to private employers or to newspapers or to anyone or anything that is neither the United States government nor an appendage of the United States government. AND, then, even with the very precise and specific limitation as applied to the government of the United States of America, there are exceptions. I suggest you read the contents of the following embedded link:
"Freedom of Speech"

Oh, as an extra to the main topic of this Roland Hansen Commentary, I am providing you with a couple links to learn about the organization for which Fred LeFebvre proclaims his support when he wrote "I am ALL FOR citizens united." Check these out:

I read the following message from MikeyA to Dale Pertcheck about Fred LeFebvre over on SwampBubbles today:
SUBMITTED BY MIKEYA ON WED, 2014-03-05 10:22.
Fred is taking some time away from SB but contacted me ....."

to which there was this response:
"Thanks again, Mikey. And
Thanks again, Mikey. And thanks to Fred as well."

I will read your links, Roland. I was thanking MikeyA and Fred for helping to give information to a family of a boy whose father died while fighting for our country. This information was about obtaining benefits for children who have had a parent die while in our military. The child had found a $20 bill on the ground in the parking lot of a restaurant. He gave the $20 bill to a soldier he saw in the restaurant, to honor his fallen father.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to tell this story again! It was on CBS News and I saw it on the local channel 11 website. There is a link below.

Finally Fred has met his match. After a series of truly humiliating posts MrIndependent (Wolfman) won the day and the Toledo Blogs have been spared the rantings of WSPD.
