He was a madman. A self hating, self loathing fool who posioned everything with which he came in contact.

An awful person who, in the end, ran from society and hid stateless in Japan.

He despised his people and praised the actions of 9/11.

All the genius in the world counts for nothing when used to express disdain for everything around you. Yes, he was a chess genius, but he will not be missed.

He was undoubtedly assassinated by the Mossad and their lackeys in the White House. The guy spoke truth to power. Because of his own background, he knew EXACTLY who was behind what and how some groups manage to manipulate things always to their own advantage.

He must have known about the SONESTA NURSING HOME cast of thieves and liars.

Yes, that's it. You figured it out - from the small, isolated enclave of your home and experience, you successfully interpreted and solved a high-level, orchestrated plot to kill a bitter and irrelevant nutjob. The world is indebted to anonymous sleuths like yourself.

No doubt all because of his tin foil hat!

"...although his mother was Jewish," the article says. Yes: for years, when he was Bobby Fischer the chess genius, he was Bobby Fischer, the Jewish chess genius. Then he started saying a lot of things that the powers in America didn't like hearing, how Israel and America were the problems in the world, and he called Jews "liars and thieves." Then all of a sudden he became Bobby Fischer, whose mother was Jewish, even though it is a fact in Judaism that if your mother is Jewish, you're a Jew too. He fell off the face of the earth faster than Cat Stevens did when he converted to Islam. Cat Stevens, who along with Dylan and Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder was probably the best songwriter of the 70's, and you couldn't hear a song of his on the radio in the 80's. The way Zionists manage the news makes the old Pravda look like a high school newspaper.

I attended some classes with Fischer at Erasmus Hall HS in Flatbush Brooklyn. Believe it or not, he was a nice guy, he loved school yard basketball. I'm sorry for him.

His own absurd ramblings buried him, not a Zionist cabal. He was a self-hating, confused, bitter person who was unable to put his life and career in any kind of context. You paint him as a victim, a victim of what exactly?

When I was 10 years old, we lived across the street from the Saidy family, where Bobby took refuge before his now famous match against Spassky. It was a big event for Douglaston, NY, and I can remember trying to peer into the Saidy's windows looking for Bobby Fischer. The NY news crew had a field day!! It is a memory that still holds today.

No context, huh? Youngest grandmaster ever, world chess champion would have worked for most of us.

It could be that ... or his comments could be responsible for his "falling off the face of the earth." Let's take a look.
"I say death to President Bush, I say death to the United States.#### the United States,#### the Jews, the Jews are a criminal people, they mutilate their children, they are murderous, criminal, thieving, lying, bastards. They made up the Holocaust, there's not a word of truth to it. They are the worst liars and bastards. And now, what goes around, comes around, they're getting it back, finally. Praise God... Hallelujah, this is a wonderful day.#### the United States. Cry, you crybabies! Whine, you bastards! Now your time is coming! The US is getting what is coming to it. This is just the beginning
"There is no United States as people think of it. It's just a puppet in the Jew's hands. It's a plaything for the Jews."
"They're lying bastards. Jews were always lying bastards throughout their history. They're a filthy, dirty, disgusting, vile, criminal people."
"The United States is a farce controlled by dirty, hook-nosed. circumcised Jew bastards."
"Because I beat the Jews in chess. I beat them badly too, I beat them very badly... Plus, on top of that I exposed them as cheating in chess! As outright crooks. Plus, I exposed the holocaust as never happened. Totally made up. The Jews are #### liars. There is not a shred of truth to this holocaust."
Maybe you agree with these sentiments. At least, like with Fisher, we'd know who we're dealing with.
Actually, he sounds exactly like Avador Lieberman talking about Palestinians. Or Joe Lieberman, for that matter.

He essentially stopped competing ... and for that matter, doing much of anything constructive with his life ... after the 1970s. So yes, he struggled mightily to put his life as chess great into context. Perhaps his statements and actions in the past three decades don't strike you as angst-ridden and unstable. Then you must be a misunderstood, victimized genius as well.

Incidentally, Kasparov, another chess great, is active in politics and has dealt quite well with his gifts.
