Michael Berry Has A Right To His Views And We Each Have The Right To Assess Michael Berry
Blogger’s Note—-Below is a post I made last September about comments that did not seem very nice about gay people made by former Houston Councilman and current right-wing KTRH talk show host Michael Berry. (The picture above is of Mr. Berry at the microphone.) In my September post I said that Mr. Berry was making a clear expression of his views. This is a right that we all should have as Americans. Mr. Berry has been in the news in recent days for alleged involvement in a hit-and-run incident outside a gay bar in Houston. Here is a link to a report on this matter from Houston TV station KPRC. The KPRC report has video that the station asserts is of Mr. Berry inside the gay bar. The Houston Chronicle reports that Houston Police are looking into the incident again after an initial determination not to press charges. I don’t know what exactly took place the night of the alleged hit-and-run, or why it may be that Mr. Berry was in the bar if what KPRC says is correct. I’d ask folks to read the stories about the concern and to reach their own views. Just as the post below may tell a story about Mr. Berry’s nature, the facts of this more recent development may also offer insight into the life of this well-known public figure in Houston
“Lindsay Grahamnesty is on Fox right now. Acting gayer than hell as usual. He grates on my nerves. Liberal Lindsay. Squish.”
I’m appreciative of people like Mr. Berry who tell us exactly who and what they are.
There were a number of comments after Mr. Berry’s Facebook post that appeared to suggest a measure of agreement with his views.
“Posts like this are why I love you. In a non gayer than hell way of course.”
Or this view expressed by a fellow citizen of our nation–
“He needs to go. I can’t stand this man. Lindsay, is that like Pat- is he a man or a woman?”
People are free to believe what they want to believe, and they are free to express themselves.
I encourage all people to speak their minds and to be involved with the issues of the day.
The facts are out there for all to see and consider. We can decide to make clear our own views to the contrary, or we can allow people such as Mr. Berry to have a free run.
