Belligerent - 2: inclined to or exhibiting assertiveness, hostility, or combativeness

"But if he drops the belligerent tone with which he is often associated "

Is a math teacher having a "belligerent tone" when insisting that 2 + 2 = 4? Is a geography professor having a "belligerent tone" when insisting that the Earth is more than 10,000 yrs old? Prof. Dawkins is no more "belligerent" than these other teachers. Next time the writer should use the word assertive, it is less belligerent a word.
