Toronto Police Probe Van Attack Suspect's 'Cryptic Message'

"The Incel Rebellion has already begun!" it read.

A chilling Facebook message posted before a van plowed onto a crowded Toronto sidewalk has raised the possibility the suspect in the attack nursed grudges against women and it is bringing back memories of a 1989 massacre of 14 women that remains one of Canada's most traumatic acts of violence. "We will overthrow all the Chads and the Stacys".

But this is not fiction. The Reddit page closed in November a forum of Incel with some 40,000 members because it housed content of strong misogynist character, in which y insulted women and became an apology of violence macho.

I'm also seeing a lot of people arguing that if these guys just needed to get laid, they should have paid sex workers. The simple truth is that women probably didn't want to have sex with a man who appeared like he would kill them if they didn't.

The FBI definition of terrorism is "the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives".

Rodger, who posted on SlutHate, which was then called PUAHate, was rapidly held up as a hero for the incel community, with the anniversary of the killings marked annually on the Incels subreddit, and people across the community expressing hope that someone else would follow in his footsteps.

"Bottom line is, incel means being unable to get a romantic or sexual partner, it has nothing to do with terrorist acts".

Toronto police give update following Monday's deadly van attack
Twenty-five-year-old Alek Minassian has been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder. The scene showed a man standing in front of a white van with a dented bumper, like the one Minassian is suspected of using.


Elliot Rodger was 22 when he killed six people near the University of California, Santa Barbara campus in May 2014. He later died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. They blame women and society in general for their unhappiness. "Chads" are the men to whom Stacys are attracted. "As much as "#NotAllMen" is insufferable because it derails what's usually an important conversation, it should be said that there are men in the world who do not hate women or consider the rejection of their advances to be grounds for treating a woman disrespectfully.

How have outsiders reacted to incels? It's a group that quickly veers towards misogyny, with anger focused on women as a gender. He is scheduled to appear in court again May 10 via video link.

Such adulation wasn't universal, though. "My dog is the only thing keeping me alive" one recent incels.me post is titled.

But in other quarters the attention that the Toronto van attack has brought on incels has been greeted with jubilation.

In his Facebook post, Alek Minassian deliberately placed his action within the context of a so-called "incel rebellion".

On Monday afternoon, a white van ploughed into pedestrians along one of Toronto's busiest streets, killing 10 people and injuring more than a dozen others in what one official described as "pure carnage". "This s*** right here is lifefuel for me", the user wrote. He has received universal praise for his handling of the situation from the media and others online. During attack, Lépine pointed out that he was fighting feminism. He or she noted that Minassian had never posted in the forum and that no participants had heard of him before the rampage.

Trump to visit Britain, hold talks with May on July 13
When May said he was wrong to have shared the videos, Trump responded by telling her to focus on terrorism in her country. The upcoming trip would be the U.S. president's first visit to the country since his election in 2016.


"Incel" groups online (and on sites such as incels.me) are frequently filled with extremely unpleasant threats against women - as "incels" are angry at the entire female sex.

Did incel ideology motivate the Toronto attack?

They are fixated on their looks, and view women as deceptive villains who are out there to ruin their lives.

Still, investigators are looking at all aspects of the crime, including Minassian's Facebook post, he said.

Wendy Cukier, a professor in the business school at Toronto's Ryerson University and president of Canada's Coalition for Gun Control, said Canada may avoid some types of violence because its social programs are stronger than those in many US states and it has less income inequality.
