White-supremacist terrorists -- the ones who have left dozens dead in attacks in Pittsburgh, New Zealand, and El Paso, Texas, in recent months -- aren't just trying to outdo one another, he told us.

"Correct. I've pointed this out before. In fairness to Gal, "pedophile" is often misused. Michael Jackson was a pedophile. Roy Moore is not a pedophile. Moore is a sexual predator, but not a pedophile."

The reason I used the term with regard to Hastert is statements like this:

Here is a look at the life of Dennis Hastert, former Republican speaker of the House. Hastert was sentenced to 15 months in prison in a hush money case that revealed he was being accused of sexually abusing young boys as a teacher in Illinois.

I don't know the ages of all of Hastert's victims. Perhaps they were all teens and not technically "young boys" and so he is not a pedophile. A number of so-called pedophile priests probably aren't pedophiles either if their victims weren't prepubescent. I just find it interesting that Sheeple's alter ego introduces the term in this thread and uses it repeatedly, but Sheeple decides to correct me:

Spin it however you want libbies - but it is the Dem elite that was doing the dirty with Epstein - not Trump:
...
Bill Clinton will still go down as a pedo...only question is how many more Dems go down with him.
