It's when your autism is so powerful it literally kills people - like an aura of death.

Just another Reddit-style insult about autists.

Context? What AspieUtah said seems to right, but without context I initially thought it was talking about some weird conspiracy theories where the government is inducing autism as a weapon.

^^^^

Yeah. Unfortunatly that phrase probably has to do with the new (post Sandy Hook) stereotype about mass murderers being autistics. Its not about empowering autistics (what you might think it means).

That's what I thought it meant----like, mothers arming their kids (meaning, making sure they're taught all the social skills, eye contact, a firm handshake, and so-forth); so, I dunno.

It's a 4chan/reddit thing, I read it mostly when people were digging thru the Wikileaks emails or investigating whatever. The stereotype being people with autism focusing and obsessing about whatever with every minute detail covered. The weaponized part was alluding to the effect it was having on the election, they were using their 'autism' to defeat Hillary Clinton. I wouldn't take it too seriously and to be honest it's a more positive connotation about autism than I usually hear online.
