"We understand that America is different, America is special," said Jindal. "We are unique, and we're unabashed to say so. It's not arrogance to say that we are a special country and that we are going to protect our interests and our allies."
Accusing both Obama and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton of trying to divide America, Jindal said: "I'm tired of this president and Hillary trying to divide us. You're exactly right. It's by class, gender, race, everything. "I'm tired of hyphenated-Americans. We're not Irish-Americans or Indian-Americans or African-Americans or rich Americans or poor Americans. We're all Americans," Jindal said for the umpteenth time, distancing himself from his Indian heritage. He also agreed with the interviewers suggestion that a recent Washington Post story "saying as an Indian-American that you had abandoned the Indian-American community" was a "racial comment". "Absolutely. Look, they can't fathom the fact that you can be conservative and smart or that you can look a different way and still be a Christian."
