A few of the reasons why it is a bit significant what Fischer says are:
He is not just a nameless nobody. During the late 60’s early 70’s the guy was on the
front page of every paper in the country and considered a national hero. he met with
presidents and premiers and was actively used as a major piece of pro-America
propaganda against the soviets.
The guy is a major recluse, to the point where most folks thought he was dead until
So that he went out of his way to publicize this is noteworthy in and of itself.
Please allow me to clarify my statement with regard to Bobby Fischer being a moron. IQ aside, anyone who believes the U.S. had this coming, actually applauds, and is happy about, this violent terrorist act against thousands of innocent civilians and then spouts off about some “international Jewish conspiracy” is a bloody moron.
The bottom of the above site has some interesting links about him. I doubt if he’d sing the same tune if he’d been injured at the WTC or Pentagon on Sept. 11th. What a waste of what appears to be a brilliant mind! :rolleyes: He’s a criminal and doesn’t appear so naive. After all, there seemed to be big monetary gain for the man.
Hey, warning, that Telegraph link has a GONZO delayed popup for something called a Mini, is that a car? The screen goes dark and this seemingly-naked flesh-toned mummy guy (you realize it’s a mummy after a minute) comes out and parades around and a text box flashes. I thought I had a virus.
Do a Google search for “bobby fischer Bombo”. Evidently he’s been giving them interviews for a while.
I found this because it was a link on the page about Fisher losing his citizenship…
Read it, its really really screwed up.
Part of it is about a guy trying to track down his kid, which is left for 4 years on two peopel who were only suppsosed to be watching her for 1 year and about his wierd ass marrage and other strange stuff.
Speaking of celebrities voicing their opinions on the events surrounding 9-11…
Charlotte Church (the teenage opera singer) supposedly disagrees with the fact that firemen are being treated like “stars”. It’s something that she “just doesn’t agree with.” What a filthy little bitch. They don’t deserve the star treatment, yet she does.
(I heard this on SNL’s Weekend Update. Naive girl that I am, I believe all of the news they present to be true [to an extent; I can identify the punchlines]. I really hope that someone corrects me on this, that this girl did not say something as mean-spirited as that.)
I’m inclined to cut her a little(very little) slack on account of being 15 and probably just really sticking her foot in her mouth, rather than expressing any carefully considered opinion that presenting awards on TV is too great an honor for the men and women of the FDNY.
Bobby Fischer has no excuse. What a vile and repulsive human being.
