Sen. Lindsey Graham: America just an idea, "we're going to tell the bigots to shut up"

The video here shows Sen. Lindsey Graham speaking at an event sponsored by the extremist-funding group the National Council of La Raza ("The Race") and saying:
An American is an idea... no group owns being an American... nobody owns this...The charitable interpretation of his comment is that he means that no racial group "owns being an American". The less charitable interpretation would point out that American citizens own being an American, something that Lindsay Graham appears to have forgotten.
I want to thank John McCain for being a leader... I don't do this much, but I want to thank Ted Kennedy... because those two gentlemen got this thing [immigration "reform"] started and the rest of us are trying to figure out how to get there...Not so fast. Our "leaders" like Graham as well as corrupt businesses and racial power groups like NCLR are the ones who've let it get out of control, not the rest of us.
...we need to find a way to get people right with the law... we also need to understand that if the law means anything, you have to have a just result...
...as a nation we have looked the other way... we have welcomed the workers to do the things the economy needs to do... all of a sudden, we start talking about how bad this problem is... we've all let it get out of control and all of us have to fix it...

On behalf of the Dan Garzas of the world, we are going to solve this problem... we're not going to run people down, we're not going to scapegoat people... we're going to tell the bigots to shut up, and we're going to get this right.
