Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello estate reportedly went woke, with
visitors saying the displays and tour guides insult his legacy.
Jeffery Tucker, founder of the Brownstone Institute, said his recent
experience at the Virginia landmark was sad and deflated the American founder’s reputation. Tucker toured Monticello on July 4 to pay homage
to Jefferson, who advocated for emancipation and the separation of
church and state.
"Instead I got exactly the opposite," Tucker said on "Fox & Friends"
Monday. "They were just debunking his history, his reputation, putting
him down, demoralizing everybody on my tour."
Tucker recounted his previous visit to the estate as being full of
grandeur with a "sense of majesty about the place."
"No longer," he told host Brian Kilmeade. "It is depressing and
demoralizing and truly upsetting."
