    Not to take away from the respects being paid here, but we can't forget Bobby Fischer the paranoid and vitriolic anti-semite.

    Yes, he was a great chess player, but he just happened to be a total asshole, too.

    I'd never even heard that he was an anti-semite. Are you sure that the chess player and the anti-semite are the same person? It just seems strange that someone who was so brilliant with strategy would say something so ignoble. Then again, I've never researched him. If I offended you inadvertently by saying I regretting his death, then I apologize. I really didn't know about that other part.

    If he is, that would kind of explain why it was Uberfuhrer who posted about his death.

    Nothing wrong with that...he was entitled to his opinion. And he also had a Jewish mother, so because of his Jewish heritage, some may say that gives him an excuse.

    But honestly, why does the whole world have to stop because someone is an anti-Semite? If anything, that just deepens the anti-Semite paranoia that Fischer had.

    I think there is a larger picture here.

    I'm pretty certain I'm talking about the same person.

    Also, If the Nazis weren't brilliant, they wouldn't have been so problematic.

    Hah. No offense, It's just worth noting.

    Yes, there is a bigger picture. The picture in which the man is both a chess player and an anti-semite.

    In principle, slamming someone for his anti-Semitic stances isn't much different from a Christian fanatic burning witches at the stake. It's little more than an intolerance toward other people's beliefs. He didn't like certain people, so what?
