From 2003 to 2006, Ian Jobling worked for prominent white nationalist Jared Taylor in Taylor’s home office in Oakton, Va. Jobling was an unlikely racist; his parents were liberal academics and Jobling had attended the best schools in Louisville, Ky. He was pursuing a Ph.D. at State University of New York, Buffalo, in the late 1990s, when he was first attracted to racial theories about IQ. While working for Taylor, Jobling turned Taylor’s website, amren.com, into a powerhouse of white nationalism, in particular by creating a popular daily news roundup that brought thousands of viewers to the site. Jobling also served as an editor and a writer for Taylor’s race and IQ journal, American Renaissance. Jobling’s concerns about Taylor’s politics came to a head in 2006, when several prominent neo-Nazis attended one of Taylor’s biannual conferences. Jewish white nationalists who were there objected to the anti-Semites also attending the event and a full-throttle debate over anti-Semitism in the white nationalist scene erupted. Jobling, who had never countenanced anti-Semitism, pushed for the expulsion of anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers from Taylor’s conferences, helping draft an open letter to Taylor to that effect. His views became problematic for Taylor, who, while not personally anti-Semitic, was willing to accept anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers in an attempt to build a larger movement. Troubling as the anti-Semites were, Jobling came to see even more danger from white nationalist ideology, eventually concluding that it had more in common with Hitler’s genocidal views than what had seemed like a mild-mannered, scientific discussion about race and IQ.
