The Beta Uprising had already been put into drive but Toronto van terrorist Alek Minassian kicked it into high gear with one of the last Facebook posts shared before he used his van to murder ten people, injuring 15 others.
“The Incel Rebellion has already begun! We will overthrow all Chads and Stacys! All hail the Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger!"

Will this line one day be equivalent to "the die is cast" only time will tell. What is certain however is that the meme of "the Beta Uprising" seems to have somehow memed itself, horrifically, into reality. Of course, Minassian had to pay homage to the "Supreme Gentleman" Elliot Rodgers. Rodgers and Christopher Mercer are two of the most well-known "incel killers" but if you track these kinds of things you'll have noticed a definite uptick in bronies, furries, incels and other awkward outcast types taking their frustrations about their own lives out on the world.
If you're familiar with imageboard culture, you're certainly familiar with the "virgin v. Chad" series of memes. This meme grew out of the Elliot Rodgers manifesto which referred to "Chads" as the undeserving, attractive and successful "alpha male" types who get all the attractive girls ("Stacys"). After the Mercer murders, the FBI went so far as to warn schools in Pennsylvania of a possible attack when a user of 4chan's /r9k/ board threatened he would "take up arms" at university in the Philadelphia area.

In all seriousness, I am willing to go out on a limb here and say that 2018 has likely not seen its last incel killing. Sadly, with the news of Minassian's affiliations with this community, a pall will fall over the legitimate Men's Rights Movement which is already characterized as a den of misogyny and bigotry. Disaffected MGTOW types and the odd incel who live up to the stereotype of the dangerously out of touch, socially awkward, "psycho nerd" do more damage to pressing issues men disproportionately face (suicide rates, paternal rights, education, incarceration rates, etc.) than a cadre of misandrists ever could on their own.
