How to use watchword in a sentence?

  1. Kate Hardiman:

    I think that the majority of Notre Dame students are committed to free speech and open dialogue on campus and that these protests are being driven by a very vocal minority who seek to disrupt the event, this is part of a larger trend of students who want to shut down ideas that Notre Dame students find disagreeable. The irony is that ‘ tolerance ’ is the watchword on campuses these days, yet only certain ideas are apparently worthy of being tolerated.

  2. Francois Molins:

    We can note that this perfectly matches ISIS' watchword, which regularly calls for committing terrorist attacks on the French territory, and to precisely slit the throats of the nonbelievers, the beheading also precisely recalls this terrorist organization's modus operandi.
