"incel terrorism"
« on: May 21, 2020, 02:06:32 am »
Well, it appears that a recent murder and attempted murder in Toronto are being charged as terrorism, as it should be ... by the RCMP.   

Deadly attack at Toronto erotic spa was incel terrorism, police allege
http://globalnews.ca/news/6910670/toronto-spa-terrorism-incel/

A deadly attack at a Toronto erotic massage parlour three months ago is now being treated as an act of terrorism after police allegedly uncovered evidence it was inspired by misogynist incel ideology.

Charges against the suspect accused of carrying out the Feb. 24 stabbing attack, which killed a woman and injured another, were updated in court on Tuesday to “murder — terrorist activity.”
...
In a joint statement, the RCMP and Toronto Police Service said their investigation had determined the attack “was inspired by the Ideologically Motivated Violent Extremist (IMVE) movement commonly known as INCEL.”
Experts said it was the first time a terrorism charge had been laid over violence tied to incels, a term that refers to self-described “involuntary celibates.”

It is also believed to be the first time Canada’s anti-terrorism laws have been used to prosecute an act of violence by a suspect who was not an Islamist extremist.
...
A police source told Global News the suspect had said he wanted to kill as many women as possible.

The woman who survived the attack said in an interview she was pleased with the terrorism charges and that Canadians should be more informed about incels.

“I’m overjoyed at the news that they’ve decided to charge him with the terrorism stuff. I hope it sticks,” said the woman, who asked not to be named.
...
Almost 50 deaths in Canada and the United States have been linked to incels, leading to calls to treat their actions as a form of domestic terrorism.
 


Policing evolves.

It did say the attack was ideologically motivated so nothing really new about that but the pile of things becoming politicized keeps getting bigger.

Incels may be a new threat but politicization is an old threat that just keeps growing. It probably won't be long until we're hearing there's actually some good people over there.

So if incels are Trumpers that can't get laid, what distinguishes them from other Trumpers?

By calling them terrorists instead of just criminals will these people now become some kind of martyrs to a cause?
I wonder.

They already think they're martyrs. These are the people who made a hero of Elliot Rodgers when he tried to kill a bunch of sorority girls. Alek Minassian, the Toronto van attack guy, referenced Rodgers as his inspiration. There have been other similar attacks.

There is an online community of these people who stoke each other's hatred of women and share their grievances and goad each other into "fighting back".

This is ideologically motivated violence, and their ideology is that they are taking revenge on women for all the "injustices" women have committed against them. 

They've targeted members of an identifiable group with violence for ideological reasons. If someone said they wanted to kill Jews as revenge for Palestine, or kill Muslims as revenge for 9/11, people would have no difficulties recognizing it as terrorism.  Why is it more difficult for people to recognize it as terrorism when the target is women?

Just throwing it out there:  misogynist extremists have killed more Canadians in recent years than Muslim extremists or white nationalists.

The Moslom extremists seem to have calmed down since ISIS has been contained.

The incels are the new morons.  Maybe we need to open more strip clubs baha!
