Gee whiz, Batman! My bullshit detector is off the charts!

If it is true, there's a huge portion of the story missing and that's how the police concluded that there was a "child porn studio" in his house if they've been "watching" this entire time. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the only way you can have a child porn studio is by having children come over.

Also I've never heard of the FBI searching computers right there on the spot.

Oh, this is SO going on stage.

I wasn't aware that nonexistent FBI agents investigating you for suspicion of running a child porn studio (presumably beaming in children using the matter transporter in your wardrobe) constituted material for a stand-up comedy routine.

The real reason the FBI raided his place? They were trying to find one of his jokes that was funny.

DOHOHOHOHOHOHO.

If it did actually happen, the way it's told has too many unanswered questions and doesn't make sense, so it could be he's drumming it up for theatrical purposes, kind of like Mike Daisey and his Apple Factory story on NPR.  While listening to the Furcast podcast tonight, they believed the story but also questioned or at least made fun of most of the details.  The closest thing they could find for an excuse for a raid was this video clip (at about 0:34) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fib4gFtTO2A - and mentioned something about one of 2's neighbors being pissed off because he converted his garage into a recording space.

I highly doubt that's it but...

wow...

Everything about that video is so beyond not-funny... such a shit-tier attempt at trying to do comedy... that I'm actually laughing at how bad it is.

How do people actually find any of this funny? All he's doing is stringing together "lol xD so randum"words.

Some pretty deluded comments on that journal:

Quote
I highly suspect this had nothing to do with child porn, and a lot more to do about anti-american activities. You're fairly outspoken when it comes to the US Government Two, and worse yet you've got a webcast that reaches multiple thousands of people all over the US.

The fact that you were immediately greeted by federal agents, with guns drawn. And how they were looking for weapons first and foremost after the house was cleared. They were far more interested in terrorist/guerilla/bomb making activities then they were child porn.

I might be wrong about this, but I'm rather sure that child porn activities are handled on a state/local level first, and are only bumped up to a federal level if it's found that there's large amounts of distributing. The fact that it was immediately federal agents with guns drawn, tells me that they were very much expecting a militant Gryphon dressed in cammies to answer the door with a semi auto rifle.

I don't think this was a spectacular cockup on their part at all. I'm quite certain this is system backlash from all the years of your rants and broadcasts stating: THIS COUNTRY IS FU'D YALL. This is why you're so confused about just what happened. Child porn was not the primary reason you were being investigated/searched. Only a cover story to allow them to search your property.

They've done far worse, to people for far less, for example: Dana Simpson (formerly David Simpson, the artist behind ozzy and millie) ran a political webcomic... Nothing inflammatory - just insightful thought provoking cartooning. Just for that endevour, They're now on the US no-fly list.

I think this was a big middle finger at you Two for the stuff you say. Some kinda warning.

Yeah, someone obviously hasn't even seen one episode of Cops. In any raid, everyone is suspected of having a weapon, regardless of what they have been accused of doing.

I also find it rather amusing that people see 2 as some kind of revolutionary who's trying to change this country. C'mon, he's just some guy who gets on stage and tries to say things that make people laugh.

I really doubt the FBI was there on a bogus child-porn charge. That's more of the purview of local county governments eager to use their DHS-grant surplus military assault rifles. The FBI isn't going to misinterpret context like some six-tooth sheriff's deputy (the FBI would like to stick to entrapping Muslims and Occupy sympathizers with fake bomb plots, thank you very much).

So either the FBI was there, and it had nothing to do with child pornography, or they weren't, and it was another police agency. Or 2 is just making it all fucking up.

(fun story: once upon a time, a relative worked in a department of a major company whose scope included security. This company employed engineers locally, including one multi-decade employee who was of Iranian origin, but had come here either before the Revolution or in its immediate aftermath. A few years following 9/11, a few bona-fide FBI agents showed up at this local office wanting to talk to the guy. In their post-interview discussion with said relative, they pretty much told him that they had received a bullshit "tip" - they knew it was bullshit, probably a racist neighbor or something - this guy lived in a really nice part of town - but policy at the time dictated that they had to follow up, regardless of merit.)

If it did actually happen, the way it's told has too many unanswered questions and doesn't make sense, so it could be he's drumming it up for theatrical purposes, kind of like Mike Daisey and his Apple Factory story on NPR.

That's actually an appropriate analogy, considering pretty much everyone involved in that thing was a jackass. Not only did Daisey ruin a perfectly legitimate cause (the very real plight of Chinese workers) for his own stupid self-promotion, but he was aided and abetted by O.G. existential wanker Ira Glass, who subsequently used to the faux controversy to wail about "facts" and "storytelling", when his show is nothing but upper-middle class people telling us how deep and meaningful their lives are.

Every time I think you people can't possibly disappoint me any further, I reload the 'recent posts' page.

Reviving this because of recent developments that he managed to somehow keep quiet.

Toast the Rabbit, 2's ex boyfriend, is currently incarcerated in federal prison on charges relating to... possession of child pornography. He was arrested in May of this year. 2 explains what happened in this video, but if you don't want to listen, 2 claims that Toast, 4 years ago (hmmmmmmm, look how old this thread is!), was trying to find material to "shock" him ("the most disgusting, shocking things he could find") and downloaded a large zip file from a "seedy porn site" that contained child pornography. 2 claims Toast deleted the files immediately, but that the feds spent 4 years "investigating" this and then decided to arrest him in May for it.

Of course, he conveniently left that detail out 4 years ago. He never mentions the raid in his explanation, simply that the file was downloaded then.

In April and May, authorities in Colorado arrested 40 suspected child sexual predators, concentrating on "offenders who possess, manufacture and distribute child pornography; engage in online enticement of children for sexual purposes; engage in the commercial sexual exploitation of children (commonly referred to as child prostitution); and engage in child sex tourism (traveling abroad for the purpose of sexually abusing foreign children)." It's unknown if Toast was among the 40 or if this was a separate incident.

Why the 6 month delay in sharing?  Read the initial 2012 post and wasn't in disbelief... I'm aware of an incident of a home raid and subsequent surveillance including at a fur con. (No connection to this or to porn).

Only found out about it yesterday when combing through his tweets about Donald Trump-related protests, when he replied to someone with something along the lines of "Toast and I broke up and he is in federal prison now." I don't know if he ever shared much more about it outside of the YouTube stream
