Fred LeFebvre, WSPD and Swamp Bubblers

Small town news: This was a Facebook entry in September 2011
"What do you think? Are the words and actions of Fred LeFebvre an appropriate display for a person holding an on-the-air employment position with 1370 WSPD-AM Radio?"
Comments 5-8-2012 From Fred LeFebvre of 1370 WSPD-AM Radio:
"HEY!!!! Don't tell him what to do use those demands on people you can control.....like the people in your household, if you get my drift, well that is if you actually can control anyone in your house, considering how hard it appears to control your own emotions. Take all the time you need twirpa I'm not putting my life on hold waiting for your inane answer. The only reason I even "talk" with you or mess with your name is because the offerings on tv are so lacking in humor. You make me laugh. Dance for me twilie, dance for me like a marionette girlfriend."
These comments are just a step away from being racist, and right on the money for being sexist. The majority of people who read this will think this is ok.
This is one reason why Toledo, Ohio, does not progress because there are a lot of people who listen to this man on WSPD-AM and think he is appropriate. What do you think?

No votes yet

Wolfman gets your drift but has been threaten with legal action if I respond. I already have been deactivated from Toledo Talk for discussing this issue. So next point.

Yes Toledo is the loser when this type of radio represents the thinking of a community. A community that supports this negative hate based thinking will never be a positive growing inclusive region. It will continue to divide till the discriminated less fortunate rise up from their hopelessness and despair. When a growing segment of society does not participate in the American dream then no one will have peace for long.

Still no email showing that Fred had something to do with your account at TT? Sad, nothing you say is ever backed up.

Glad this question is being posed finally. I believe the comments of a private citizen on a public board are entirely appropriate unless they suggest physical harm to another or are lies. Perhaps you could be more specific about which of the comments is racist or sexist. It wouldn't be the one about control since that is a direct quote of something you told me in an earlier post. Could it be the use of the world girlfriend?, then you need to explain the racist or sexist overtones involved there.
Without specific reasons for calling words racist and sexist the second part of your post makes little sense other than the typical liberal bomb throwing that words can be racist and sexist when used by someone you disagree with.

Oh yeah one more thing. Purnhart seems to believe, like a lot of liberals, that just because she walks into a room or enters a chat room or blog that everyone else must then conform to her standards of civility. She doesn't want to be offended. No one forces you to come here, once here no one forces you to read a particular post. If you don't like what I say in response to your stupid questions don't post them or read my answers. Get over yourself. No one has an inalienable right to not be offended by what someone else might say or do.

Media Matters teams up with National Organization for Women in attempt to force Rush off the air
The key, according to Media Matters online outreach director Jay Carmona, is to target Limbaugh at the local level — specifically advertisers in local radio markets — but with an eye on his national sponsors.

yes we see how well that has worked.

Over at the left-wing Politico, the headline is "Limbaugh Boycott Cost 'Millions." But once you actually click on the story, you get the real story:
"It hit us pretty hard," Dickey said during a call with financial analysts yesterday. "A couple of million bucks in the first quarter and a couple of million bucks in quarter two."

Dickey would not give exact figures, but said the "millions" accounted for "about one percent" of the roughly $245 million in first quarter revenues, and said he expected revenue to return to normal in June.

Cumulus owns just 38 of the 600 stations that air the Rush Limbaugh Show, which is nationally syndicated by Cumulus's competitor, Clear Channel Media. For its part, Clear Channel saw total revenues increase 6 percent the first quarter of 2011 to $671.5 million in the first quarter of 2012, according to MediaPost.

You have to wonder how much this failed boycott cost the suckers who contribute money to the anti-Semitic, Soros-funded, tax exempt Media Matters who led the campaign.

In other news: during this failed boycott, Limbaugh's ratings have increased across his 600 stations while CNN's ratings have collapsed, and the Washington Post is sinking almost as fast.

Have you ever dated a black woman ?
No.
Why not, are you a RACIST ?! [ Debate coach: Faulty & unprovable implication from the questioner is inappropriate ]
Well no .My vision of an appropriate mate since birth ,is a fair skinned lady about 5'6", with a few freckles , physically fit, and feels good in her own skin .

So, you've never even thought about dating a black woman ?
No, I haven't.

That sounds RACIST, to me !

I guess you have to consider your past experience and question yourself , Why , that line of inquiry ?
You could have asked ," Have you ever considered dating a Japanese lady , an Indian Lady, an Eskimo but, you inquired as to why I haven't dated a black woman...indicating your RACIST premise to begin with !

Who then wins ?

Better question : Who in the blinking Universe, really cares what insecure folks think or believe !?

And, always...get out of the way of robmobs !!!!

but Toledo is made up of people who are afraid to speak truth to the powers that be. Sadly, Fred and WSPD are one of those powers. The more idiotic they sound and the more idiotic the stuff they say is accepted then the worse they will get. Good reason why Toledo is given awards at being the worst of something. Clear Channel allows these people and their airwaves to say and do whatever they wish and they don't care who they offend. I listen to WSPD almost every day when I am taking/picking children up from school. Then we have a lesson on what the topic is and how it is delivered. You would be surprised at how astute these children are. The conversations get very interesting. When young people (who are not liberals or conservatives or constitutionalists or libertarians) hear some of the stuff spouted over these airwaves it gives them a chance to think. They become very good critical thinkers.
Fred, I don't need adoration when I walk into a room or blog, I used to enjo the back and forth on SwampBubbles. You and some of your followers have turned this blog into one big session of domestic violence. The stuff you say about me really has no effect on me but I am sure there are people who are afraid to stand up to the idiotic statements that you make. And yes, you are sexist and racist and you know it. So is WSPD and they also know it.

Why would anyone be afraid to stand up to the so-called idiotic comments? What would be the ramifications of doing so?

I get down on my knees each night and thank God that your comments are only on the internet and not on paper. What an enormous waste of paper and trees they would be.

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.

People are afraid of losing their employment, their housing, their children, their friends, their freedom. If you have lived in toledo for any amount of time, this is very evident. Anyone who speaks out is branded and once they are branded they are villified and demonized. If people can shout you down they can shut you up!

That's crap. Lived here my whole life, never saw anything like that. Please give an example.

I have a gut feeling that you are just egging me on and really don't want the information. I know if you have lived in Toledo your whole life you have felt something strange about Toledo. Or maybe not if you have only lived in Toledo and have not ventured beyond its borders.
Buuuuutttt just in case I am wrong, check out some of the posts from when Swamp Bubbles began. See how many posts there were, the rational debates that took place. It was a great place but now with the influence of Fred and his gang, the swamp is no longer a safe place to dwell. Even the first poster said he can't talk because he has been threatened legally...so no it is not crap!

I was a long time listener of WSPD but have cut back drastically. Before corporate America bought up whole radio markets in the 1990s WSPD was a reliable source of local news. Now I feel its a propaganda outlet of hate and racism sprinkled with some charity and public announcement work to give it legitimacy. When the carpetbagger brian came to town the station took what I believe a huge turn for the worst. I've been voicing my displeasure for over three years and have been attacked for my opinions from both fred and brian. I've been trashed and hung up on the radio station, posted my personal pictures, e-mail address, had my blog account deactivated with another site, and threaten me with legal action ETC. ETC. to, I believe, silence the Wolfman. Is that free speech! Is anything I've done with my little voice here compare to what they do everyday with their larger audience on the radio? Hell no! So I agree with purnhrt if you don't agree with these clowns then they will go on an all out offensive to ruin you. This is why most people are fearful to speak out.

You actually believe wolfie? He seems a bit paranoid. I don't have the time to go back and read old news, but did you ever think left leaning people quit posting here because they saw the error of their ways?

You are 100% correct. The reason Fred can't silence me is because at one time he and the station wanted to work with a group of community people to help make some positive changes in Toledo. We even had a couple of meetings and he was nothing like he is now. But I didn't back down to him then and am not going to back down to him now, He has brought my children into the conversation on Swamp Bubbles but one thing he does know is that I'm not afraid of him and he can't silence me.That is what pisses him and Mikey off. Brian Wilson came on and the station did take a turn for the worse. I believe that that, coupled with the election of a black president WSPD takes the stance that it does and Fred gets away with his racist and sexist comments. He and WSPD know what they are doing.
I'm not sure that they realize the ramifications of their rhetoric but as I always say and what you have said in this post is that no one wants to live in a city like Toledo and the bullying mentality of the its talk radio station.

Wow! I thought radio people had inflated egos. Paul and Tywila feel they are so important that me and "my gang" are trying to silence them. Classic victim mentality. Paul, I'm still waiting to see the evidence you have of me requesting your removal from Toledo Talk, or the posting of any e mail address. Your legal problems were brought on by your comments on here which were provable lies so that's on you. If anyone was trying to silence either you or the crone explain why you are both still here.
In your posts you claim no one listens anymore to us, while in another you decry our influence. Which is it?
As for the crone, if she wonders why people have left SB it's because they tire of her constant playing of the race card for every problem she perceives. If you both don't like WSPD, don't listen, if you don't like the posts don't read them. How difficult is this for you two to understand?

You'll notice both comments/sites have been deleted

Fred you're stretching it here about not posting my E-mail address. When I get some time I'll track it down in your archives of comments http://swampbubbles.com/users/fred/track

So your evidence that I asked for you to be removed is non existant, is that what your'e saying? And that my posting of your wife's e mail is also non existant right now. Haahahhahaha

Most of the right wing shine boys on here are bird watching faggots just like the bubbles sister site toledo talk.

I agree fred.

Lies are not protected free speech especially when they are used in malice in an attempt to harm a non-public individual which was the case with wolfman. Why he feels he's been targeted to "ruin (him)" yet he neglects that he felt compelled to do the same thing to Mrs. Wilson, who had no public voice. He won't respond to basic questions and as I pointed out about how he defines patriotism he is still lying.

Purnhrt, talks about her children being brought up. If I'm not mistaken TPage came here of his own choosing, no one forced him to sign up, and I know I never discussed him prior to his self-promotion on here.

And you are correct, everyone here got very tired very quickly of purnhrt invoking race into every discussion. She's a one trick pony and people will only watch for so long.

These two plus Roland and Ty Coon do not hesitate to make the attack personal. I would not put it past any of them to take their grievances off here and attempt to negatively affect another posters personal life.

MikeyA wroye, in part:
Lies are not protected free speech especially when they are used in malice in an attempt to harm a non-public individual which was the case with wolfman. Why he feels he's been targeted to "ruin (him)" yet he neglects that he felt compelled to do the same thing ..... Purnhrt, talks about her children being brought up. ..... These two plus Roland and Ty Coon do not hesitate to make the attack personal.

Once again, MikeyA has demonstrated his hypocrisy. After all, it was MikeyA who when writing about me used these words:
"a whiny little bitch" and "Anal-Rapist" and "narcoleptic molester" and "his life of huge debt, fat wife, erectile dysfunction, etc."

And it was MikeyA, who sent an electronic message to my wife in which he wrote:
"Judy, Roland seems a little tense could you give him a few more bj's?"

Please show me where there is hypocrisy.

First, you are a whiny little bitch, and you never denied an analyist-thereapist or "anal-rapist" for short nor any of the others. Additionally, I merely used the tactics you used against fred and directed them against you, so please spare me your hypocrisy whine. And I am such a hypocrite that I encouraged your to proceed with legal proceedings on me when you accused me of a supposed crime.

Secondly, you were not here when wolfman had to apologize nor where you a part of the conversation when purnhrt's son began posting. So before you take bits and pieces of my quotes and attempt to use them against me I'd recommend you track back into the comments and study up because if not I will show wrong much as I did your buddy Dale Pertcheck when he tried to defend you using the same quotes you are quoting now.

You are not a good friend because you gave Dale my quotes yet didn't clue him into the context in which they were made which was in response to your behavior. Upon amplifying them for him he slipped quietly back into the darkness and never referenced them again. Typical liberal, put someone else into the line of fire for your own ends.

P.S. did you not enjoy the bj's? You still seem tense. Maybe your a backdoor kinda guy?

MikeyA

analyist-thereapist or "anal-rapist" for short

There's no hyphen:

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

I apologize for my grammatical mistake.

MikeyA

Roland still is and always will be my friend. I stopped commenting about your over-the-line statements directed at him because, once I looked them up and confirmed them and commented about them, I was done. I moved on.

That's the whole story...moving on again!

Well maybe... or you can't defend the indefensible which is why you haven't defended Roland's actions. I meanwhile, still stand by my comments and have confronted all of those listed earlier, to include Ty Coon who resides on the same side of the political spectrum as I.

Likewise, I've confronted the rash of sockpuppets as well. I'd like to see all of the aforementioned take on that as well... oh wait they don't care about that... because the sockpuppets ironically reside politically on their side. So they're content to let that slide.

MikeyA

against this slandering hypocrite if these deranged statements are from this jackass.

A multimillion suit was just awarded to a civil litigant & his wife, who was so defamed and slander on a post !!

amok !

The union fellow wants fred to either get fired, die, or have something horrible happen to him in everything he posts?! Hate:defined perfectly...
The sister, desires the same.
And, the youngster, wants childish parameters to the debate, to be practiced by only those he deems "playing fair" ?!

Pardon me while I go to the restroom and VOMIT PROFUSELY !!!!

Just because a TPage posted here did not automatically make him my son unless someone had that personal knowledge. And if you had the personal knowledge there was no reason to connnect him to me or me to him, other than that is how you operate. It was done for a purpose and that purpose was either to discredit me or him. At the time he was a young man and had a right to voice his opinion on this blog. The fact that Fred and his gang bring in relatives of posters to denigrate the poster or their relative is reprehensible.

Fred, what would cause a grown man who has a talk radio program to call me a crone, talk about my hair, call me names, use other names for me, and spell my name in demeaning ways? What is the flaw in your personality and character that would cause you to do these types of behavior? I can only think of one reason.

I pity people like Fred and Mikey who are just shit starters. They must be very unhappy men and lead very sad lives or they would have no reason to TRY and make others miserable. They really have not succeeded.

"And if you had the personal knowledge there was no reason to connnect him to me or me to him, other than that is how you operate."

You REALLY need to look in the track backs. It was not I who connected him to you. You could have easily looked this up but that wouldn't have allowed you to make an attack against me. So you either lied or chose not to intend to be correct, that is reprehensible.

"fact that Fred and his gang bring in relatives of posters to denigrate the poster or their relative is reprehensible."

I never commented on your son until he came here of his own choosing. Once he did I responded in kind to his comments and your conduct. I didn't "bring in" your relatives, they came here. There was no coordination with Fred either. In fact, if there was any coordination it was between you and your son.

In reference to your other post, I really don't think the military cares what your opinion you now have of it is.

MikeyA

you give the military a bad name.....just like Robert Bales.

MikeyA Troll give it a rest!

I will wolfman, when you 1) answer JM's questions 2) admit you believe patriotism is dependent upon what vehicle one drives.

I don't believe you're capable of admitting either.

MikeyA

"Not a problem, and thanks for the apology earlier. Hope you won't have to do that again eh? Oh by the way you should cut and paste the post where you said I gave your wife's e mail address. And the post that shows I requested your removal from Toledo Talk. Looking forward to you putting as much effort into that as you have into tracking down my personal life." Good Luck Fred getting any answers. JM and I are still waiting. But I guess waiting for answers is how "trolling" is defined nowadays.

You wrote: """"""You REALLY need to look in the track backs. It was not I who connected him to you. You could have easily looked this up but that wouldn't have allowed you to make an attack against me. So you either lied or chose not to intend to be correct, that is reprehensible."""""

First of all I don't have the kind of time that you obviousl do to "track backs." I have my FB family and friends that I communicate with. I play Scrabble with my family and friends. I look at pictures, comment on posts and interact with people on FB. I read the Daily Blade, The weekly newspapers including, The Sojourners Truth, The Toledo Journal, Toledo Reads, sometimes the Free Press (when I can find it) whatever book I am reading, watch CNN and MSNBC, PBS, Jeopardy, American Idol and teach school, advocate for my community and take care of children. And that is just half of my day.

You and Fred can say what you want, do what you will but I know what took place. My son was outed (as my son) and then you all denigrated him because he is my son.

I'll save you some time purnhrt. http://swampbubbles.com/20090520/could-only-happen-toledo

Again, please show me how I or Fred "outed" your son. Then in the thread you will note I stated "I made no assumptions about your son. I did make CONCLUSIONS about you. Ironically, you have fully supported those conclusions with your post."

Sorry that facts-checking doesn't fit conveniently into your free time, especially when throwing around baseless attacks sure does.

Happy reading! If you have time that from all your reading, scrabble and American Idol.

MikeyA

Proof of purnhrts reprehensible conduct. She'd rather be loud than right.

She was quick to make an easily provable accusation at Fred and myself. As soon as the evidence is provided to show otherwise it's WHOOOSH off to another thread to conduct other troll like behavior as evidenced by her quote "Just made.... this post so that you all could get your anger out for the day!"

Once again it's her conduct on here that we take issue with but she continues to claim it's sexism, racism, or bringing her family into the fold.

She needs to go back to her facebook neighborhood where no one questions what she says.
