The recourse to the word “cowardly” is another symptom of liberalism. Liberal politicians don’t want to call the perpetrators of these crimes “enemies” or “evil,” since liberalism prohibits the recognition of the existence of enemies and evil. So they call them “cowardly,” which makes the speaker sound tough and determined, when in fact he is only being absurd.

Excellent point.

Courage refers strictly to the attitude with which one faces a challenge. It makes no moral judgments about the challenge itself.

Evil men can be courageous, and good men can be cowards.
