Conservative Talk Radio Host Michael Berry Was Definitely At That Gay Bar In Houston ...

Berry... and we know this because the establishment's security footage has finally been released to the public.

As Andy reported: Michael Berry, a Republican, former city councilman, and syndicated radio talk show host famous for thinking murderous thoughts about those of his fellow citizens who happen to be Muslims, has been accused of perpetrating a hit-and-run outside of T.C.'s Show Bar in the Montrose gayberhood of Houston on January 31st, 2011. Berry allegedly reversed some 70 feet in a Chevy Tahoe, slammed into the car of a bouncer named Tuderia Bennett, who happened to be standing right outside the bar, and sped away. Witnesses confirmed the hit and run, and Bennett says he got a clear look at the perp before he drove off, as well as a good reading of the vehicle's license plate. When traced, the plate number turned out to be Berry's.

From Raw Story:

Berry, a former Republican city councilman, suggested on his radio show on Thursday that he had been framed by his “enemies.”

“I’ve always said when you do what I do, the way I do it, you make enemies,” he said. “When you poke your finger in as many people’s eye as I do every day, you make enemies,” adding that they will “will accuse you of most anything.”

Now, a man who looks very much like Berry can be seen by all on footage from T.C.'s security cam, which was posted yesterday by KHOU 11. With the tape, the witnesses, and the license plate number, Houston police have more evidence than is usually brought to bear on hit and run cases. Nevertheless, they've so far declined to launch a full investigation of Mr. Berry. Bennett suggests this is because of Berry's connections in local government.

For the record: There was a drag show in progress during Berry's visit to T.C.'s Show Bar, and while it's odd to catch a professional right-winger in such environs, Berry's presence is not necessarily indicative of hypocrisy. Berry celebrates at least one drag queen on his website, which features a page devoted to the comedic stylings of Shirley Q. Liquor.

Anyway -- watch KHOU 11's coverage, as well as the uncovered security footage, AFTER THE JUMP ...

  1. @anony,

    Houston has a lesbian mayor,too.

    ALL big cities are corrupt, but in fairness most big U.S. cities are under the control of 'progressive' Democrats and their big union budddies. No, Republicans are no better.

  2. That the man is a slime is obvious, that he is a foolish and cowardly slime is also apparent. Had he stopped and traded information with the owner of the car who doesn't appear to want anything other than restitution for the damage caused to his vehicle that probably would have been the end of it. Instead he left the scene of an accident which whether anyone is injured or not is actionable under the law, seemly assuming, and up to this point rightly, that he could use his connections to squirm out of any accountability. Glad to see this is being followed up on and hopefully if nothing else it will cost him a lot of money, far more than had he done the right thing to begin with. Another aspect is that if he did indeed use undue influence that could lead to criminal charges for both him and the officers that covered up evidence. Couldn't happen to a more deserving jackass.

  3. Ratbastard...good for refuting the KIWI pinhead. He's a presumptuous, arrogant snot who needs a lot of slapping since he never seems to learn. Although he can be insightful and amusing (the latter unbeknownst to himself) his idiot judgements and vitriol make him one of the "lillies that fester (whom, alas) smell far worse than weeds."

  4. I hope that the guys who have had intimate relations with Berry come forward and expose him. There's nothing WORSE than a nypocritical gay homophone.

  6. T.C.'s is infamous for drugs and ladies (and gentlemen) of the evening. It is a "drag bar"--that's the advertised attraction (almost all performers are in some stage of transition, so 'drag' isn't totally accurate), but this is a place with regular HIV and other STD testing every week (that's the sort of place it is), and it's NOT out in the open. The people driving past T.C.'s aren't doing it by accident.

  8. He's married to an Indian woman and is the father of a niglet. He's not racist or a queer, but I am, faggots.

  9. ...just take a look at that angry mug of his....serious issues with this guy, serious....it takes a lot of stamina to "run" a radio talk show and any "help" (read: speed drugs)they can get to stay razor-sharp, glib and full of energy they will take...even if it means getting the goods in a gay bar...in fact it is the RIGHT choice of venue for creeps like Berry. Buying on the street? Nah, too dangerous...Easy- in -Easy out at TC's....and this is the MAIN reason he celebrates a particular drag queen. Gotta keep your "connections" happy, man. Would Berry smash your face in if you made a move on him? You betcha...but if you could hook him up with some stuff, you get a pass....but no free feel...Typical GOP mentality and a former "elected offical"..poster-boy. He's be a much better looking dude if he didn't scowl so much...a little self-hatred going on there,Mikey?...juys askin'....just sayin'....

  10. Michael Berry has to be gay!!!! I always had my doubts and this is total proof of it. When you do what you do the way you do it..........you don't gain enemies, but when you hit and run.............you do!!!

  11. I think everyone is missing the major issue here that is not be reported. He was probably drunk and backed into the car and took off because what looks worse is a DWI accident, but the owner of the car caught him do it as he was trying to leave. He has been known to drink heavily on occasion. The bonus story is the person who committed this crime happened to be a conservative talk show host who is from a party who generally known for being anti-gay everywhere. The problem is people are looking at the bonus part of the story and not the main part…this is the problem here. The bonus part is just plain hypocritical, the main story is criminal, this is what needs to be investigated. I have no doubt he is a closet gay man, but hides under the persona as a mean race-baiting talk show host. Stick to the main story and the rest will fall into place!! He won’t be removed from the radio as he is the program director at 740am. Just attack the advertisers and he will go away. Start with Gulf-Coast Windows and move down the list.
