I feel the same way about Bobby Fischer as I do about Charles Manson. These are two people whose views of the world are sickeningly twisted to the point that the only conclusion I can make is that mental illness is involved in both cases.
Bobby lived his whole life for only two purposes, to play a game, and to be the poster child for antisemitism. His flagrant disregard for laws and authority caused him to blame the U.S. Government or the Jews for everything that ever happened to him. Even in death he laid blame at the feet of the Japanese and Icelandic governments. If you ask me, Fischer was a media whore and he probably just broke the law everywhere he went in order to stay in the limelight.
Why do I say that? Well, here are a few choice quotes:
Bobby Fischer: This is, they, they did this all behind my back.
Pablo Mercado: Umhum.
B.F.: Nobody contacted me–nothing.
P.M.: All right.
B.F.: Nobody contacted my lawyers–nothing. The fuckin Jews want to destroy everything I’ve worked for all of my life.
P.M.: What, what–
B.F.: There was no holocaust the Jews are liars. It’s time we took off the kid gloves with these parasites.
P.M.: All right with, with all of these things Mr., uh, Fischer what do you intend to do now?
B.F.: I intend to do what I’m doing right now.
B.F.: –Which is to expose the Jews for the criminals they are, the parasites they are, the liars they are, the thieves they are, the murderers they are.
Oh, and if you really want to remember what a freak this guy was, watch the video here and you’ll understand what I’m talking about.
