I found this Fischer interview

Before watching this interview, I watched an A&E Biography on Fischer, listening to person after person talking about how "mentally ill" he became.

Well, I've watched the above interview a few times now, and nobody is going to convince me that he was mentally ill. He had a point of view that some would not argue against, and others were outraged by. But it was his point of view from his experiences. Whenever anyone calls him mentally ill, they just don't know what they're talking about, and just making up things about their fallen idol: "Somebody cut Sampson's hair!" "Look how Superman has been weakened by kryptonite!" "My hero has a disease!" Blah, blah, blah.

Bobby Fischer: Yes

Eugene Torre: He's the radio announcer here in Bomba Radio in Baguio. So good morning Bobby, how are you?

Bobby Fischer: Ok, Mr. Bomba is it?

Eugene Torre: Wait wait. Mr. Pablo Mercado - here wait.

Bobby Fischer: Oh, pardon me, Mr. Pablo Mercado of Bomba Radio, excuse me, ya

Pablo Mercado: Yes, uh, how are you Bobby?

Bobby Fischer: Thank you, very well, yes.

Pablo Mercado: You've very well. You see, Eugene Torre is here with us right now and he related to us your present problem regarding your memorabilias in the States. Can you tell us something about it Bobby?

Bobby Fischer: Yes, well, umm, this is just the latest in a long line of crimes against me by World Jewry and the Jew controlled United States of America.

Pablo Mercado: Uh huh. Why is it so? Why is it so? Why are they doing this to you?

Bobby Fischer: They don't like me.

Pablo Mercado: *laugh* as simple as that. as simple as that that they don't like you.

Bobby Fischer: Ya.

Pablo Mercado: All right. Which of these properties that you have are now being sold by the states?

Bobby Fischer: No .. they're already been sold. They're gone.

Pablo Mercado: Really?

Bobby Fischer>: Ya ya. They said I owe them a few hundred dollars which is, you know, without contacting me, nothing. they just sold it all off - stuff that it took me a lifetime to accumulate. I had it in. They broke open my safes and they broke open my file cabinets and everything. and just sold off everything. sold off like a hundred boxes of my stuff and sold off my photo album, my letters from President Marcos, my photo album with President Marcos - everything.

Pablo Mercado: Uh huh

Bobby Fischer: This is just a conspiracy against me by the Jews.

Pablo Mercado: Why? Why?

Bobby Fischer: Those filthy filthy b-----s. You know they've trying to take over the world.

Pablo Mercado: Why?

Bobby Fischer: You know they invented the Holocaust story. There's no such. there was no holocaust of the Jews in World War II.

Pablo Mercado: Really?

Bobby Fischer: They've been pulling this s--t from time immemorial about persecution. They're a filthy lying b-----d people. That's all they ever do. that's all they'll ever be.

Pablo Mercado: Why do you have this thing about the Jews?

Bobby Fischer: I have no thing.. They have a thing about me.

Pablo Mercado: *laugh*

Bobby Fischer: Study the history.

Pablo Mercado: Really?

Bobby Fischer: Are you a Christian?

Pablo Mercado: Yes, I am.

Bobby Fischer: Well, you know. The Catholic Church. The Catholic Church taught for a long time about that they're guilty of the murder of Christ, right?

Pablo Mercado: Yes. So? *laugh*

Bobby Fischer: You know.

Pablo Mercado: *laugh* Anyway, Bob, this memorabilia that has been sold that you owed.

Bobby Fischer: That I owned? I still own it. This is all stolen property, you know?

Pablo Mercado: All right. all right. uhhh would you?

Bobby Fischer: I have spent on this .. just in storage fees alone over 10,000 dollars. I have spent in buying the custom made safes, custom made file cabinets, with secret built in safes in the file cabinets, another file cabinet, a safe with special drill proof doors, with a second door inside, combination locks, both timers, in case somebody tries to force you to open it. The works! to preserve my memorabilia. My stuff from Marcos, my letters from President Nixon, books dedicated to me by President Nixon, former President Nixon when he dedicated the books, but he was President Nixon when he wrote to me. All kinds of stuff, photo albums, statues, the works! They have stole every f-----g thing and sold if off. The dirty Jews that want to put me in prison for 10 years. They have sold off all of my memorabilia which I collected over years. They have confiscated, they have stolen my book My 60 Memorable Games. They have come out with the illegal movie called Searching for Bobby Fischer which is exploiting my name for money. They've made tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars on this movie. I never get a penny of it. They came out with the illegal. the Jews have come out with the illegal CD-ROM called Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess. Zero for me. I get nothing. even from the legitimate edition of My 60 Memorable Games. Nothing. These f-----g Jews are thieves, they are liars, they are mother f-----s, and it's time we took care of these b------s.

Pablo Mercado: I have a photocopy of several checks that you have issued to .

Bobby Fischer: Yeah yeah. I faxed them to Eug.

Pablo Mercado: Yes, who is this Bob Ellsworth?

Bobby Fischer: This guy was acting as my agent to pay my bills there in the states?

Pablo Mercado: Uh huh.

Bobby Fischer: I have some stuff in storage in New York. I have the stuff in storage in Pasadena which has all been robbed. And I have a PO box. two PO boxes in Pasadena. And I had some property in Florida which I have to pay taxes on every year.

Pablo Mercado: Uh huh.

Bobby Fischer: This. all of these things come to less than 4000 dollars. so I was sending him 5 grand a year to take care of all this, plus giving him like a thousand dollars for his trouble. and he was paying it. But then he got the words from the dirty Jews. f--k Fischer's a--. sell his memorabilia. This was in conclusion. this was in collusion with this Bekins storage company in Pasadena. You know. what the hell am I gonna give away all of the stuff which I have taken years to accumulate and to preserve over 400 dollars. I've got 300 million dollars in Switzerland. I got dough here in Hungary. They did it all behind my back. Nobody contacted me. nothing. They didn't contact my lawyers. nothing. the f-----g Jews want to destroy everything I've worked for all my life. There as no Holocaust. The Jews are liars. it's time we took off the kid gloves with these parasites.

Pablo Mercado: All right. with all of these things Mr. Fischer. what do you intend to do now?

Bobby Fischer: I intend to do what I'm doing right now.

Pablo Mercado: What?

Bobby Fischer: Which is to expose the Jews for the criminals they are, the parasites they are, the liars they are, the thieves they are, the niggers( editor's note- don't know how to edit this one) they are.

Pablo Mercado: You speak like an Arab.

Bobby Fischer: .. You ask the Palestinians. I was just listening to the BBC. the horror story that come out of there when you get into an Israeli prison. the way they torture you . it's unheard of. I was listening to a Palestinian woman, a Christian woman from Palestine, not even Muslims, Christian women who were anti-Israel. They got picked up by the Israeli police, taken down to the jail, and then the Israeli police tried to get information -- Who do you know among your friends that's anti-Israel? Give us all the names of your Arab, Christian friends who are anti-Israel. When they refused, they put the women in a cell, these are mothers, these women, mostly. They put em in a cell, and then they start playing, in Arabic, on the loudspeaker, 24 hours a day, "Mommy, come home, Mommy, we miss you" in Arabic. They played it over and over again until the women just collapsed.

Pablo Mercado: All right, do you have any.

Bobby Fischer: This is the Jewish mentality. These are a criminal people. They torture their prisoners in the worst way. It's even illegal! They don't even deny it hardly. Jews were always b------s throughout history. They are liars, they are the worst pieces of s--t in the world. They mutilate their own children.

Pablo Mercado: all right.

Bobby Fischer: F--- the Jews.

Pablo Mercado: ok. you don't plan any legal moves against them? against those who sold your memorabilia?

Bobby Fischer: What is this he said?

Pablo Mercado: Legal moves, like a case in court.

Bobby Fischer: You know, the Jews control the courts. What is your name, Mr. Mercado?

Pablo Mercado: Yes, Pablo.

Bobby Fischer: Yes, the Jews. Pablo, yeah Pablo. The Jews control the courts. It's just a charade they go through. It's Facade City, you know - Facade City. I've been involved in a number of law suits in America. Never got a penny, never got a stop order, never got nothing. I've been involved in about 5 or 6 lawsuits, about 5 cases throughout the years, never got a penny, never got any property back, never got a stop order, never got nothing man. I spent a lot of money, and I have all the documents, and I have all the justice on my side. It's a joke. The United States is a farce controlled by dirty, hook-nosed circumcised Jew bastards.

Pablo Mercado: Bob, uhh, I have no other questions. Maybe Eugene, he has a few questions for you.

Bobby Fischer: Ya ya, Hi Eugene.

Eugene Torre: Hi Hi Bobby. Well, uhh, not much questions. I think you have expressed, uhh, quite good your side, and exposed these people, you know? *laugh*

Bobby Fischer: Hey Eugene, what's the difference between a good Jew and a bad Jew?

Eugene Torre: Yeah. What's the difference between a good Jew and bad Jew?

Bobby Fischer: The good Jew f---s you slower.

*All laugh*

Eugene Torre: OK. so.. It's ok, Bobby. I think it should be over now, and

Bobby Fischer: OK

Eugene Torre: and I have good news. I was able to contact. anyway, maybe you can get in touch with me later, ok?

Bobby Fischer: OK, I'll call you at home, OK?

Eugene Torre: OK, ya, and uhh

Bobby Fischer: OK, what time, I'll call you what, in about 10 minutes, half an hour?

Eugene Torre: Maybe in half an hour, ya.

Bobby Fischer: OK. OK. did we go out live? did we go out live?

Eugene Torre: This is live. This is live Bobby. Everybody hears. .. ..

Bobby Fischer: OK, good. you know, because that's the only way to go, you know. I don't like to be edited, you know.

Eugene Torre: No no. no editing here. Here, it's live.

Bobby Fischer: Get a copy. Get a copy of this, ok?

Eugene Torre: Ya, I got already here a tape of this conversation, this interview, ok? So give me a call after thirty or one hour, no?

Bobby Fischer: OK, take it easy

Eugene Torre: OK, Bye.

Bobby Fisher has said so many "crazy" things...it is now a joke for anyone to quote anything positive that he has that.

Who knows whether or not he was ill? He played great chess...but chose the wrong road to go down...history will not be kind to this guy.

Pretty much the only thing that would cause me to cut Bobby any slack would be if he was mentally ill.  Despite being of Jewish birth (and btw there is no such thing as "half Jewish".  By traditional Jewish law Jewish identity is determined by the mother's line, and you are either a Jew or not.  No fractions.) Bobby became a ranting anti-semite and spewed some of the most hateful garbage I have ever heard.  He was either mentally ill or an utterly despicable human being.  I think the more generous option is the former.

you can see he was mentally ill, driven insane by his life and governments.

Yes..that's it.

Was any of his speech making truth claims about objective reality? Nah...it's all just a point of view. We're enlightened enough to know that now!


Oh no, padman, you were never ignorant, or said anything ignorant in your life. Everything you say makes "truth claims about objective reality". Hell of a mind you have there, padman.

Reb, one post you lament the disappearance of free speech, and this post you scream "HATE". Bobby Fischer would have probably appreciated someone saying that he is entitled to his opinions, no matter if I agree or not. If I don't agree, I'm not going to turn into Doctor Sharon about it, and tell anyone who would listen, that he's mentally ill. I'm going to just call him a jerk. Bobby Fischer was actually a real person, not some ideal that failed. I don't hate him, I hate the ideal, the idol. It's just so fake.

People that like Fischer appreciate his chess. That's it; No one ever said he was a role model. He just played good chess. I'm not sure why people have such a problem with that.


I agree with the obvious, he played this game quite well. But as far as idolotry, hero, "role model", he's been all of that to many people. People say it all the time in chess forums.

Well whaddya know? Fischer says they had stolen his original version of My 60 Memorable Games, and then hints about an illegitimate edition. Something he was working on, perhaps? I can certainly see this adding fuel to the fire of Bill Wall's controversial, My 61 Memorable Games thread!

I totally agree. He couldn't make money in a country that the U.S. was sanctioning, but, no doubt, there were still U.S. based companies that could. So he's pissed at the U.S. Who isn't? He got into Catholicism, and so from there, was intolerant of other religions. Wow, that's new. He always put high value on wage on his terms. Sounds familiar. Et cetera, etc. But he played a powerful game of chess for a couple of decades. No mental illness. He wasn't dangerous. Just annoying.

 About this role model stuff, I don't know why people think that just because somebody is gifted at something it automatically makes them a saint. I read the book "A Beautiful Mind" which was completely different than the inaccurate movie, and Nash was conceited as hell, and a jerk, but he did do great math. After he went into remission, he explained his antisemitism that he blathered on about when he was crazy, as resulting from his mental illness.
