According to the article, Jobling was never comfortable with what he termed the "anti-Semitic" associations that Jared Taylor maintained with those who believe there is a Jewish Question. Jobling’s concerns about Taylor’s politics came to a head during the now-infamous American Renaissance Conference in 2006, when several prominent white nationalists, including Dr. David Duke, were in attendance. Pro-white Jews present, in particular Michael Hart, reacted explosively and profanely when Dr. Duke began to address the group about the Jewish Question. A full-throttle debate over "anti-Semitism" in the white nationalist scene ensued, and Jobling, who had never countenanced anti-Semitism, pushed for the expulsion of anti-Semites and Holocaust revisionists from Taylor’s conferences, helping draft an open letter to Taylor to that effect.
When asked when he started to question his commitment to white nationalism, Jobling first explained that he saw two different strands to white nationalism; the first relating to racial differences in intelligence and behavior, in particular the difference between black and white intelligence. Jobling then identified the second strand as ethnonationalism. He now considers both strands as flawed.
Jobling noted that he also differed with Jared Taylor on the Iraq War. Jobling believes it's America's duty to promote liberal democracy all over the world; he considers himself in agreement with liberal democratic ideas. After leaving Taylor's employ, Jobling established a website, Inverted-World.com, that was both pro-White and pro-Jew. It soon disappeared, and in 2009, he then established another similar website, WhiteAmerica.us, which was discussed more extensively on The Phora, but he shut it down in 2010 according to Occidental Dissent.
Jobling gives no indication that he will become an anti-racist activist like Tim Wise or T.J. Leyden. Instead, he wraps it up by saying "It may be that there are innate, biological differences among the races. There is a large body of academic research on these differences, and this research is credible, which doesn’t mean that it won’t be overturned in the future. Scholars should not be persecuted for publishing research on these matters. But this subject is so explosive that, in our daily lives, we should ignore it to the extent that this is possible. We should make an effort to treat people equally and not impose our stereotypes on them. That’s where most Americans are today, and I’ve come to accept the common wisdom".
Reaction: No reaction from Jared Taylor available yet, but the SPLC only released its report on November 27th. Those familiar with Ian Jobling will not find his denunciation of white nationalism surprising; there have been signs all along. There was some discussion on VNN Forum back in August 2008 about whether or not Jobling was a Jew; no supporting evidence was presented. Occidental Dissent has picked up the story, primarily in the comments section. Jobling's departure doesn't seem like a real loss for our side.
