This tweet’s a couple of weeks old, but it’s making the rounds Thursday because it’s from the same person who tweeted on Christmas Eve that “If billionaires didn’t exist, poverty wouldn’t either!” Anthony Clark is a Democratic Socialist running for Congress to “eliminate inequality caused by white supremacy and capitalism,” and after his billionaire tweet, people started digging through his feed for other gems. We sort of get what he’s getting at here, but we have to draw the line at “comrade” and “squad.”
Ally is a verb
Comrade is a verb
Friend is a verb
Partna is a verb
Homie is a verb
Squad is a verb
Bro is a verb
Sis is a verb
Family is a verb
Gang nem is a verb
Accomplice is a a verb
If you’re not actively trying to earn a title, you probably ain’t it!

“Degrade“ is also a verb.
As in, “The caliber of education in America has clearly been degraded if this is what candidates for Congress are spouting.“

After that silly [poverty exists because billionaires do] tweet, I'm starting to think this is a parody account.
