The More You Know: Bobby Fischer (1943-2008), an illegitimate child whose mother was Jewish, was an outspoken anti-Semite and Holocaust denier. As an émigré fugitive from the American legal system (for a 1992 match in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, which was against UN sanctions), he once called the US "a farce controlled by dirty, hook-nosed, circumcised Jew bastards." After the Sept. 11th attacks, he proclaimed on a radio interview, "This is all wonderful news." He died seeking asylum in Iceland, where - I guess - Americans and Russian couldn't expose him to harmful radiation through his molars.
