The Toronto van killer who murdered 10 pedestrians and injured several more when he plowed through crowds on a sidewalk Monday was a fan of Santa Barbara shooter Elliot Rodger and, like Rodger, he was angered that women wouldn’t sleep with him.
Alek Minassian, 25, described himself as “involuntarily celibate” and praised Rodger, the shooter who railed against women in 2014 before stabbing, shooting and striking victims with his vehicle in Isla Vista, California . . .
Before his killing spree, Minassian had made Facebook posts referencing a a rebellion of “incels,” or men who are “involuntarily celibate” because women will not sleep with them. After his killing spree, Facebook deleted Minassian’s page.
In one post, Minassian, who has been described as a “socially awkward” tech expert, wrote in a post: “Private (Recruit) Minassian Infantry 00010, wishing to speak to Sgt 4 chan please. C23249161. The Incel Rebellion has already begun! We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys! All hail the Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger!”
As far as the first portion of the post is concerned, Canada’s Global News reported that Minassian was briefly in the Canadian Armed Forces last fall but was “asked to leave after 16 days of recruit training.” This would explain why he refers to himself as a “private (recruit)” rather than simply a “private,” which would indicate he has completed his military training.
