Toronto Madman In Van Attack is "Men's Rights" Activist

Accused Toronto van driver appears to praise US mass killer

In a statement, SergeantIncel said that Minassian never posted on the forum, and that being an incel "has no relation whatsoever with violence, aggression, misogyny or other negative connotation".

The man accused of driving a van to attack pedestrians in Toronto was charged on Tuesday with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder.

But other forums are laced with suggestions that at least some of the discussions are merely satire or a way of blowing off steam.

Other users on Incels.me debated new ways to bring terror to normies, including pipe bombs, acid attacks, mass rape and memeticized spamming of Elliot Rodger and Alek Minassian, according to the website WeHuntedTheMammoth which monitors online misogyny. But if involvement in misogynistic online communities is indeed part of the picture here, we need to resist any narrative that would push this into the background.

In November, Reddit banned a section or subreddit of its site devoted to incels for hosting violent content. But they declined to say whether they were investigating the post, much less whether they considered it a clue to a possible motive.

As a teen, he had an awkward personality, those who knew him then said.

Whatever emerges about his mindset and alleged motivations, his mention of an "incel rebellion" immediately put the virtual community under scrutiny.

Rodger's online history indicated he may have identified himself as an "incel", or an involuntary celibate, and of the anti-feminist "manosphere".

Toronto police said they have seen the post, screenshots of which have circulated widely on social media.

Melaye: Senate Summons IGP Idris
At about 1.pm yesterday, Saraki led all senators in two buses to the National Hospital, where Melaye was hospitalized. He also revealed that the handcuffs had been removed but didn't disclose any other thing that transpired.


But since then the woman, who asked to be identified only as Alana, said she had been saddened to see the phrase - shortened to "incel" - co opted.

Elliot Rodger, a man who killed six people in Isla Vista, California, in 2014, is held in high regard in the Incel community.

"After this, I've decided I'm no longer going to walk around with my ear phones on", said Manikku, who like many big-city dwellers used earbuds to help her block out the big city noise.

"It was meant to be a helpful, supportive movement", she told The Globe and Mail newspaper, explaining the term was meant to include "people of all genders who find themselves celibate or lonely and not dating".

"I was trying to create a movement that was open to anybody and everybody", she told the magazine.

But, she says, there's "a high degree of misogyny" in the "self-created" incel community. "And that's been codified into a sort of indoctrination", she said. "And I think it just reifies and confirms itself [or] establishes itself through these echo chambers online". The suspected driver of the van, Alek Minassian, drove the vehicle up the curb of a busy sidewalk, striking dozens of pedestrians. They blame women and society in general for their unhappiness. A man who killed three women and wounded nine others in a Pennsylvania dance-aerobics class in 2009 left behind a vitriolic diary about his lack of a love life. Gaining dating experience or learning pick-up techniques won't help, they believe.

"When you start dissecting what's happening here, part of it is the violence and misogyny and hatred of women - the desire for power and control", she said, pointing to the École Polytechnique massacre, when a gunman killed 14 women and injured 14 others on December 6, 1989.

The problem with such forums, she said, is they can exacerbate feelings of isolation and rage when that's the only sentiments being discussed. "She only had kindness in her".

The first victim identified was Anne-Marie D'Amico, 30, who worked at USA investment firm Invesco and spent a lot of her time volunteering and helping others.

A senior official with the Forces said Minassian wasn't adapting to military life, including in matters of dress, deportment and group interactions in a military setting but that "there were no red flags and nothing that would point to anything like this".

Their sick glee was only exacerbated by the fact that most of the victims of the Toronto attack were women, including an 80-year-old grandmother who was an avid fan of the Toronto Blue Jays and Maple Leafs.
