How you talk about the Orlando mass shooting might depend on your political party

After 49 people were killed at gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando, Fla. this week, lawmakers, news organizations and the American public let their reactions be known. But how does the conversation differ between political parties?

The New York Times did a breakdown of terms and topics used when Republicans and Democrats discuss the attack. The Times noticed that Democrats focused on weapons and referred to the attack as a “mass shooting.”

“This is the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States and it reminds us once more that weapons of war have no place on our streets.” — Hilary Clinton

But Republicans avoided the word “shooting” and tended to call the attack a “terrorist attack.”

“It was the worst terrorist attack on our soil since 9/11, and the second of its kind in six months.” — Donald Trump

Other differences in rhetoric included use of the phrase ‘radical Islam,’ placement of blame on either guns or criminals and willingness to mention the LGBT community. See these comparisons and more here.
