How is the truck attack a cowardly act? I have absolutely no defense for the murderer and think he should be summarily tried and executed. However, really, how was his attack cowardly? He ran over people knowing what the consequences were going to be and jumped out with useless "guns" knowing he would be shot. How is that cowardly? Takes a lot of guts (no pun intended at all), if you ask me.
When law enforcement should be saying we are going to kick asses and take names, all they can say is that this was a "cowardly act". Looks like the real cowards in all of this are the leaders of the NYPD for not rounding up every potential muslim radical in that city and putting intense pressure on them. Then, after finding out at which mosque they worship, going after those leaders. Now, THAT would be a courageous act, but, it would incur radical criticism and the NYPD are too cowardly to do what is right. So, they just call the terrorist a coward. What kind of attack would make him NOT a coward? Please do tell.
Announce the time, place and location you are going to do it.
A more even fight, like one on one just hands.
He is a coward as there was no chance for his victims to fight back. Like shooting someone in the back it was a cowards attack.
Cowardly? Truck vs bike.....truck ALWAYS wins.
“I just heard a truck make a terrible sound!”
“What do you think happened??”
“Well, I don’t know. But I’m pretty sure is wasn’t Islamic terrorism! That seems pretty clear!”
“Certainly not! But I guess we don’t know anything else.”
“We do know it was a cowardly act.”
“Oh, that goes without saying.”
It is called cowardly for propaganda purposes on our side.
If you wish to determine if something is actually “cowardly”, reverse the actors and see if the appellation still fits.
We should not underestimate our opponents.
>>Kind of odd they immediately came out calling it a cowardly attack.
Remember, everything they say is projection. Progressives create the legal environment that allows these animals into our country because Prog virtue signalling is the highest form of cowardice. So when one of them goes Instant Jihad on us, the Prog media quickly calls it “cowardly”.
There's a reason why this pr!ck didn't do this in Texas.
One on one, face to face.
Killing people from behind who are incapable of fighting back? Cowardly.
It could be that it is considered cowardly for Islamists to attack unsuspecting liberals who are not allowed to carry.
Not cowardly. Islam is a cult. A billion people who
either truly belive or are forced to belive in a dangerous
dogma of bigotry, violence and superiority. Caliphate.
Domination. Submission. CAN WE WAKE UP?
THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE PAID TO DO - THEY KNEW THAT WHEN THEY SIGNED UP FOR THE JOB.
Agreed. After 9/11, the trend became to use any demeaning adjective to describe terrorists. Calling these murderers “cowardly” never made sense to me. However, to objecting to calling them cowardly seemed to imply they were the opposite — meaning, brave — so most people just shrugged off the description.
Not hard to understand. Attacking defenseless innocent people with no warning is a cowardly act.
It's not. He fully intended to become a muslim martyr but survived.
He's also not a 'very sick and deranged person'. He's a muslim.
And the lectures on muslim backlash will go into overdrive tonite.
I get what you’re saying, but the descriptor fits. They execute ambushes against defenseless civilians in order to maximize casualties—men, women, children...it doesn’t matter.
Not “Lone Wolf” either.
