Intro: "Romney is not the only one who has called for the release of the full 49-minute video. And we're more than happy to oblige. The complete video demonstrates that Romney was not snippetized and that he was captured raw and uncut. Here it is, in two parts."

Romney told attendees of this $50,000-a-plate dinner that 47 percent of Americans—those who back President Obama—are
Romney told attendees of this $50,000-a-plate dinner that 47 percent of Americans—those who back President Obama—are "victims" who are "dependent upon government" and "pay no income tax." He noted: "my job is is not to worry about those people." (photo/screengrab: The New Civil Rights Movement)

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

On the video one attendee asks, "What's wrong with being rich" then he follows this with (I'm paraphrasing) "why shouldn't Americans aspire to be rich?"

This is the attitude of the 1%, they don't understand that it isn't that we dislike the rich, that we do want people to aspire to be rich. The resentment comes from how many people have been stomped on as the rich climb to the top; how they have no community spirit; how they want to tilt laws and regulations to retain their position and place barriers to those who do aspire to a better life.

You're right LeeBlack. We have nothing against rich people, just the GREEDY & SELFISH, who continually plot against those who do work hard to attain a better life. Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, & Robert Kiyosaki are great examples. They share their insights, ideas, and resources with others who want to upgrade. The "GREMLINS OF GREED," on the underhand recite this pledge of selfishness which reads:

SIT ON THE CAN, & REFUSE TO SHARE WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN BLESSED TO ATTAIN, WITH OTHERS! And by the way; WE BUILT THIS!! Notice how much these CHICKENHAWKS continually talk about building up the military and preparin for war? The masters of DEFERRMENT & DRAFTDODGING? Now they want OUR CHILDREN & GRANDCHILDREN to fight their dirty skirmishes to line their pockets! They are TRULY EVIL INCARNATE PEOPLE!!!
