Incel terrorism? Canada lays unique charge in massage parlour murder

In Toronto, a 17-year-old has been given a charge of terrorism for a stabbing attack on an erotic massage parlour, resulting in the death of one woman and the injury of another.

Police say that the alleged attempted murder of the woman who survived is worthy of a terrorism charge because they say the teenager was motivated by the “movement commonly known as INCEL.”

On Thursday's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Peter Lloyd joined Ezra to talk about his article on whether being an “incel” warrants a terrorism charge.

Incel stands for involuntary celibate, and there are numerous online private communities dedicated to self-identified members. 

Discussion topics at incel forums range from coping skills to accept a lifetime of loneliness as a positive turn of events, the radical acceptance of their lot in life as a loner, or to escape inceldom by improving their fortunes enough to attract a partner.

Elliot Rodger left behind an incel manifesto after killing six people in the 2014 Isla Vista rampage, where he was unable to gain access to a targeted sorority house.
