  1. Thanks for acknowledging Jews can be antisemites. It's become a big issue with these Jews taking over Jewish groups. Though, you should mention that his issue with the United States was its opposition to genocide at the time.

  2. “ For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son (To pay for all our sins), that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”-John 3:16

    “Therefore, son of man, say to your people, ‘If someone who is righteous disobeys, that person’s former righteousness will count for nothing. And if someone who is wicked repents, that person’s former wickedness will not bring condemnation.” -Ezekiel 33:12

    Repent while you still can.

    God loves you :),,


  4. I love how we look at people who are 100s of miles ahead of us in intelligence, can be perceived as crazy, without trying to further understand why they say what they are saying. Geniuses tend to govern by a whole, not by exception.

  5. Lol this is literally the whole plot of queens gambit

  6. Everyone here should watch "Pawn Sacrifice" , Its the movie about him

  7. Simple. Because everyone else looks like a moron whenever they make a move

  8. I thought it was either Garry Kasparov or Magnus Carlsen are either World's Best Chess Player.

  9. Dude Bobby is really good but don't say hum the best

  10. I can't say that I can see or understand that he was insane, I think he was more eccentric as most geniuses tend to be. He typically lived outside of the general definition of normal.

  11. Opportunity only once, once missed, will never get

  12. Someone said that madness is just the other side of being a genius. A fine line between insanity and genius.

  13. Funny how Kanye also said that the world is run by Jews.

  14. Wild to think about how simply purchasing a board game would have such a ripple effect in one's life.

  15. Let's be honest: there's absolutely nothing surprising about a chess player going insane.

  16. Oh no ! He played an illegal chess game ! God forbid ! He deserved to be hunted down by the Jewish "Murder Incorporated" Mossad and burned like a witch ! Playing board games is the greatest crime against humanity I can think of. Except for letting his passport expire ! Now THAT is a capital crime if ever there was one ! But the worst thing he was guilty of was denying he was Jewish ! Jews are to be revered !!!!!, not denied ! Everyone knows that ! So it is a fact ! that he was a horrible criminal. Played chess, let his passport expire, and did not revere Jews and Lesbians ! Oh the Humanity ! Move over Vlad the Impaler ! There is a new King of Evil in town !!!!!!!!!!

  17. Wow. Bobby could have got a check mate with the white bishop to rook six.. @6:22 a 13 yr old rarely sacrifices the Queen like that..

  18. It's funny that Barbra Streisand had a crush on Bobby Fischer. One is a genius, while the other is the worst musician to ever live. I did an 8 page essay based on music theory and marketing science facts dissecting her music and how it is awful.

  19. I don't get what Bobby Fischer history videos never talk about him being a lunatic, narcissist, conspiracist Nazi. Dude was an asshole from his teen years.

  20. Whyyy his lifr story sooo emotional to me 😭

  21. Got to love all the Russian bots "In 2006, Boris Spassky described himself as an Orthodox Christian, a monarchist and a Russian nationalist." fuck this dude.

  22. Who is to say his paranoia wasn't real? After all so many atrocious things has happened during the cold war. Who can say for sure his paranoia was just a paranoia?

  23. Sounds like he was cheating or something lol

  24. Planet Earth & Einstein in the first 20 sec ,I'm done! 🤣🤣 But that's how you program sheep. Nice.

  25. plot twist… he never did lose his mind, he just knew too much

  26. Im glad i join this channel. Thank you
