This "Bernie Sanders Glowsticks" Meme Was Made by Someone Who Wants to Kill You

Edited to delete link to picture just to make sure no one here falls for it.

Someone wants Bernie Sanders supporters to feel the burn in their skin, filling their nostrils and in their lungs, even to the point of death.

A short infographic pulled straight from the Anarchist Cookbook called "How to make Bernie Sander's Glowsticks!" [sic] found its way to Tumblr, DeviantArt and Reddit in the past 48 hours.

Ostensibly, it's a guide to making small, blue glow sticks. It's even stamped with a fake "Bernie Sanders approves!" message at the bottom.

These instructions do not tell you how to make glow sticks. These are instructions for how to make a deadly chlorine bomb.


Bad, bad 4channer!

Seriously, this is awful.

2. Fortunately DUers are smart and likely wouldn't think the combination would make a glowstick.

But damnit, it would have worked well on Trump supporters....

And now the secret's out before November!

On the serious, it's actually really friggin' seriously wrong, because while the Wave Charge meme may have gotten some kids iPhones and parents microwaves damaged, if someone tried this they could end up seriously hurt.

5. I deleted the meme pic, but it's hopefully pretty clear....

... that the article is an attempt to make people aware this is going around and NOT to do it.

So I hope if anyone alerted that people understand that my point was to make sure it was known this was being spead, condemn it, etc.
