This afternoon, amid calls to release the complete footage of Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s controversial speech that was delivered at a fundraiser earlier this year, Mother Jones obliged. The outlet divided the speech into two parts and posted it on YouTube, while also taking the time to write an extensive recap of the events that have unfolded over the past 24 hours.

Naturally, Mother Jones also defended itself against claims that the individual clips it published were taken out of context. TheBlaze is working on a separate article analyzing the speech and we will be publishing that later today. In the interim, you can watch the first portion of the speech here:

Part two can be viewed, below:
