    • 2004: Chris Wallace, Character: Profiles in Presidential Courage
      No matter what pacifist "flubdubs and flapdoodle mollycoddles" might say, the President [Teddy Roosevelt] knew that if there were a general war then America could well be drawn into it.

AdjectiveEdit

pacifist (comparative more pacifist, superlative most pacifist)

  1. Of or relating to pacifism.
    • 2010, Charles R. Pinches, Kelly S. Johnson, Charles M. Collier, Unsettling Arguments: A Festschrift on the Occasion of Stanley Hauerwas's 70th Birthday, Wipf and Stock Publishers (ISBN 9781606082539), page 129
