Air Force Warns Of Angry "Incel" Men Who Can't Get Laid And Go On Mass Killing Sprees Instead

Joint Base Andrews in Maryland recently issued a threat brief regarding "incels": members of an online movement that "adopt an ideology of misogyny, mistrust of women, and violence in response to their failed attempts at romantic relationships," according to Task and Purpose.

The term "incel" is generally defined as: "...members of an online subculture who define themselves as unable to find a romantic or sexual partner despite desiring one, a state they describe as inceldom. Self-identified incels are largely white and are almost exclusively male heterosexuals. The term is a portmanteau of "involuntary celibates"."

Another, simpler definition: men who can't get laid. 

Several mass casualty events as a result of "incels" have happened with increasing frequency since May 2014, after a 22 year old man shot and killed six women in California as "retribution" for years of being rejected by the opposite sex. 

The Air Force included in its briefing a screenshot of a common internet meme used by "incels" called "Becky vs. Stacy", a diagram that purportedly shows how "incels" judge women based solely on their physical features.

And the screenshot appeared the day after a former Army infantryman who frequently noted the "incel" movement, Brian Isaack Clyde, opened fire outside a Dallas building and was subsequently shot by Federal officers. Clyde frequently shared memes related to the movement before the incident. 

According to the briefing:

"Incels believe "they are owed attention from 'Beckys'. Most Incels believe only men can be Incels as women could engage in sexual activity if they wanted to."

The briefing claims that the meme shows an "increase in discussion" of the topic on forums like Reddit and 4chan, forums where an April 2018 van attack in Toronto was cheered after its perpetrator declared he wanted to incite an "incel rebellion".

And there have been numerous other examples of "incels" committing crimes:

The following November, 40-year-old Scott Beierle shot and killed two women in a Tallahassee, Florida yoga studio. A former Army second lieutenant, he was discharged for "unacceptable conduct" that involved "inappropriate contact with female soldiers," according to a Washington Post investigation.

Beierle "was an avowed hater of women, a man who repeatedly grabbed women in real life and fantasized about raping and killing them in the horrific collection of lyrics, poetry and novels he began writing as a teenager," according to the investigation. "His interactions with the opposite sex had gotten him fired from teaching jobs, booted from the Army and hauled before the principal of his high school.

Then, in January 2019, 27-year-old Christopher Wayne Cleary was arrested on terrorism charges following social media posts threatening a mass shooting over his virginity. "I'm planning on shooting up a public place soon and being the next mass shooter cause I'm ready to die and all the girls the turned me down is going to make it right by killing as many girls as I see," he wrote on Facebook.

11th Wing spokesman Aletha Frost confirmed the document's autheticity, noting: 

"The intent of the brief was to educate the Joint Base Andrews commanders on the behaviors and activities attributed to the group to safeguard our Airmen/installation."

Let's hope no one ever introduces this community to Islam's promise of 72 virgins...
