One half of the most famous chess match in history is dead. As much as Bobby Fischer contributed to the game, he also contributed great anti-American, anti-Semitic tirades which, in my opinion, overshadowed his former career. Here’s just one of his quotes:
“The United States is evil. There’s this axis of evil. What about the allies of evil - the United States, England, Japan, Australia? These are the evildoers.”
Fischer chose the wrong side when he renounced the country of his birth.
