CONTENT
1   Molyneux implies that his video was put together in a few days, implying his inquiry for sources and evidence was not incredibly rigorous, which can also be inferred from his assertion that reports confirming Mandela's repeated and direct involvement in terrorist activities as 'not available'. Molyneux says in his very first sentence that the content is a collection of reactionary speculations, directly contradicting the titling of the video as a source of 'truth'. While on the one hand it adds to his image of being generally well-informed, spontaneously articulate and confident in the truth of his points, on the other it suggests his intention as an influencer is to push hot takes on current events to discredit mainstream views, by offering a narrow framing that is purposefully provocative and contraversial. One is left to wonder whether his beliefs would hold true had he spent more time researching them. He mentions his willingness to amend inaccuracies, but if he has it is not indicated here.
2   It seems he prefers this freestyling presentation format, but by not including notes or references on-screen, and given we can see him checking notes and stumbling while he retracks his thoughts or comes up with examples off the bat, it's difficult to discern how rigorous his investigation is, how reliable his sourcecs are, and even what components are founded in evidence versus what is his own speculation. That being said, his language is intelligent, his tone is confident, thoughtful, and often humble, making it very easy to believe that what he's saying is true. To him, it is, without a doubt.
3   This is one instance where a primary source is surely attainable, the inclusion of which would strengthen Molyneux's point of Mandela being a communist, but there is no reason as to why the source isn't cited. Not only do we just have to believe that it exists, we have to believe it was not written in good faith to promote a moral way of living, since this is something we are not supposed to associate with communism.
4   Molyneux tends to add clarification where it will strengthen his point, but will leave out details that are not immediately obvious, especially to an audience who may not be familiar with (or care for) these details. In this instance, he explains that Naziism is an abbreviation of National Socialism, to emphasise that socialism is associated with fascism but this truth is being censored from public discourse. What he doesn't explain is why this censorship is put in place, and what the words nationalism and socialism mean together in this context, or any other context for that matter. The explanation which he implies is the strawman of 'the left' controlling the media, and controlling speech by extension. He offers no further information on what the left is, aside from being made of socialists and communists, which are also not considered as topics in need of further inquiry. The audience's pre-existing conceptions of 'the left' suffice for Molyneux's investigation.
5   There are some telling moments like this where we see the bigotry beneath the surface layers of Molyneux's language. After a wondering thought ('I mean if you...'), he seems to take a moment to assess if this word choice needs revision, clarification or editing. Since these presentation style videos are not edited, he decides to clarify he means South African 'blacks', knowing the racially dubious term has a good chance of being received badly if left it as is, but still assessing that his audience will not criticise him for not choosing a more humanistic label. Saying 'whites' later in the sentence could justify he is merely framing his point in simple terms, for the audience's sake, or to save time, but this is not justification for the loss of context of the struggles he's failing to describe. In a video asserting 'truth', the audience should expect these details to be the main event, rather than an afterthought. On further reflection, it's more likely he had a lapsing realisation **elaborated
6   I've taken to call the group he's generalising here rebels because I'm unsure if he's only talking about violence committed by terrorist groups, or if we are to understand this was common practice by any group who felt threatened by people 'negative to the cause of Black liberation'.
7   He doesn't offer any more detail on this, such as the rate at which it declined, any other factors that might have influenced the drop. He goes on to assert it was the result of Mandela's communist government, but these are projections of his own conviction that are not founded in concrete examples or sourced evidence.
8   I've made this note throughout because he rarely mentions where he pulls the statistics from, so I'm unsure if he's reading direct excerpts of one of the sources he listed in the video description (which even at a glance are not from credible sites) or if he's made notes based on all the sources and put the examples together himself. He only has a few named (albeit vague) citations, such as a UN report, an Amnesty International statement, and opinions from 'black writers'. Aside from these, he gives no indication of how the audience can assess the facts themselves or where they can easily find them, despite even advising it is important to be skeptical of government-released facts and drawing one's own conclusions about them. Regardless of whether this is a habit he should be preaching, he's not doing a very good job at demonstrating it.
