Democratic Party chair says disagreeing with Republicans isn’t hatred for the country

LaSalle County Democratic Party Chair Dani Brzozowski says just because her party wants changes that Republican don’t doesn’t mean Democrats hate the U.S. She’s responding to Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s assertion that Sen. Tammy Duckworth and other Democrats hate their country.

The comment from Carlson came after Duckworth said she thinks there should be a national dialogue on what to do with monuments to presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, who both owned slaves. Brzozowski says patriotism means wanting a country that takes care of its people. She’s running for Congress in the Illinois 16th District against incumbent Republican Adam Kinzinger.
