Michael Berry Responds (a Little) to Hit & Run Gay-Bar Allegations, Bashes Gay-Bashers

berry022112.jpg
Michael Berry talks, kind of.
Michael Berry is not doing any interviews on his hit-and-run allegations, but today he talked about it on his radio show, to some degree.

"It is time I speak on an issue of some importance, at least to me...I'm going to do that right now, at least on the issues I feel are of the most important in this story," he said.

He said KPRC got its information "from unnamed sources," which isn't exactly true. (He called the station "SOBs," too.)

He said the "gay bar" aspects were highlighted to feed a "conservatives hate gays" theme in media.

"I don't bash gays," he said. "In fact, I bash people who bash gays," citing Karl Rove.

"GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT, YOU STUPID FOOLS," he shouted to "gay activists." "YOU WANT PEOPLE TO HATE YOU. I have never hated gay people; in fact, I've gone the exact opposite direction."

"I don't have to bash gays to prove I'm not one," he said.

Imitating a questioner, he said ""Michael, why would you go into a gay bar?"

He answered himself "I didn't. I went into a bar. There were gay people inside. Why did I go into a bar? Let me confess: `Cause there was cold beer waiting inside....Would it have been better if I was at a strip club?"

He said he went into T.C's Showbar because he didn't want to be bothered and the bar was a place where no one knew his name.

Here's an hour's worth of it:

If you are a male going into a bar alone and don't want to be bothered, why would you go to a gay bar? A gay bar on a Tuesday night at 11pm that features drag shows on that night? You will probably be bothered as a single man at a gar bar, by other single men at the gay bar.If you really don't want to be bothered as a single man in a bar, go to a lesbian bar...you will be left alone and unbothered.Here's another tidbit of info...ALL BARS IN HOUSTON SERVE COLD BEER.

Bonds, Palmero, Clemens and Berry, all self described big shots who consider themselves too important and above the law and could've saved themselves and their families mucho embarassment if they just admitted to the truth.   The real issue is your smug attitude towards others personal property.  Most likely you were intoxicated and not in your right mind unless you're accomplished at driving under the influence.  We dont care that it was a gay bar, we only care that you don't consider your listeners as worthy of the truth.  The truth is not generated over closed door meetings with Dick Deguerin, the truth, in this incident should have been offered by you to Tuderia Bennet and you wouldnt have lost your ceditbility and tarnished your image.  Now you can never be President!

The good folk on 1430AM KCOH sure had a time with Michael GayBerry this morning. Seems they like to see a little turnabout is fair play.

I don't think he hates gays. But if you listen to his comments on the President, I think he has a problem with black people.

9/11 was an inside job. This is all a distraction. Mr. Berry I hope this does not effect your family too negatively.

99.99% of the people in that bar are gay.  Is Michael Berry saying he is the 0.01%?

I don't really care what he does with his free time. I enjoy his show, and will continue to listen.

I'm curious to see if the FCC takes notice of his tirade today. There was an amazing amount of swearing going on here. I'm thinking Michael Berry may have just opened himself up to sanctions and fines from the FCC for going on the air and acting like a swearing unstable child.

How many bars are there near Michelle's house? I wouldn't know the queen if I saw her out. Please Michael. No one is buying this nonsense!

It took him a week to come up with "I don't hate you, you stupid fools"? 

I live a couple blocks away from TC's, and saying that it's a random or anonymous place to get a beer is insincere. 

It's not a beer joint that happens to be gay. It's a gay joint that happens to serve beer.

I can think of a bazillion seemlier watering holes for enjoying a beer incognito. "There were gay people inside" may be the understatement of the year.

 "Honey, I didn't go into a topless bar. I went into a bar. There were topless women inside. Would it have been better if I was at a gay bar?"

Let me try this one with the wife tonight. Will let you know tomorrow how it flies.

He doesn't have to call it bashing if he wants, I guess, but he frequently cracks jokes about gay people using gerbils for sex. He was relentless when Barney Frank visited Houston. He also makes statements like, "If you pick a truck on gas mileage, you are gay."

I've never been to TC's, but I have heard from several that it has a bad reputation in the gay community for being a sleazy place.

It's hard going out anywhere when you're a celebrity. And a much-beloved one at that.

I’m glad he’s hired Democrat Dick “Only the Guilty as F Would Pay My Fee” Deguerin.  Everybody deserves a fair trial.

I thought we all decided many many years ago in America there can't be Gay or Straight or Black or Chinese etc. bars unless they are private clubs.

It's discriminatory.

Isn't that the point Mr. Berry is trying to make with all the Gays, Blacks, Straights, and Chinese etc.fans and potential fans saying ... Yup! Yup!

Looks like a clever way for Berry to expand his audience to me.

 If you want a beer and don't mind a gay bar, George is a much better choice.

Having sex with other men makes you gay. Factoring in gas mileage when looking at trucks just means you're not a god damn millionaire. Or not a guy married to a millionaire.

True...and I think his comments on his show seem to be preparing us for something. An announcement, maybe? ;)

If you have ever been in a gay club in that area around TC's on a Friday or Saturday night, it's pretty obvious they aren't turning straight folks away.

And maybe you are right: Perhaps Michael Berry was lying when he said in this article that he was trying to anonymously go into a bar where he would not be recognized to get a beer.

From what I've seen, gay folks don't generally care who is in their bar. There's film of Berry in the bar, apparently, and no one asks him for proof of gaity.

But - without speaking for all LGBT - I bet most of us would prefer that people don't slam into a another car in the parking lot and then leave the scene of the accident.

Seriously though...if this guy honestly/genuinely went to a gay bar in an effort to avoid attention, just who the hell does he think he is?

He is a former city council member and is on the radio.  He couldn't possibly be such a celebrity and/or recognizable to enough people that he'd need to go to a gay bar to avoid attention/being recognized.
