The Nazi Gassings Fairytale


1999: Walter Bernhard LaGrand, a German (born in Augsburg) gassed to death in America in violation of international law

Before the executioner switched the lever to initiate a chemical reaction between cyanide pellets (KCN) and sulfuric acid (H2SO4) the inmate was given his last words. Walter LaGrand said: 
"To all my loved ones, I hope they find peace. To all of you here today, I forgive you and hope I can be forgiven in my next life. This date’s gassing with hydrogen cyanide (HCN) took 18 minutes until the heart of Walter LaGrand stopped beating. While the execution took place witnesses left the room nauseated.”
This gas execution on March 3, 1999 was almost certainly the last gas execution anywhere in the world. LaGrand had deliberately prolonged the agony of his own death to protest the inhumanity of the death penalty and especially gas executions. LaGrand had refused to assist his executioners by taking a deep, final breath on a signal from the warden in order to quickly ingest a lethal dose of cyanide. In his agony filled process of heroic resistance, however, LaGrand also undermined the holocaust hoax in which as many as 2,000 people at a time, 6,000 per day, had supposedly been gassed to death, also with cyanide, in just three minutes per gassing. That claim had been made by self-proclaimed “eyewitnesses”  Vrba and Wetzler and widely publicized in the infamous War Refugee Board Report of mid-1944—even in the NY Times. That claim was simply a big LIE and technically impossible. A simple phone call in 1944 to any number of prison wardens in the US with gas chamber experience would have told anyone that the claim was absolute rubbish. But, not to worry about minor details—after the war, suitably prepped and tortured witnesses were found to support the BIG Lie! And, it goes on and on still today.

The execution of LaGrand in 1999 was also a flagrant violation of international law. The US decided shortly after an international court's ruling in this regard that it would not be bound by international law. 
“In 2005, facing multiplying challenges from death-sentenced foreign nationals similarly denied their rights under the VCCR, the Bush administration formally withdrew the United States from the ICJ’s oversight for such cases.” 
America is truly exceptional—but we knew that already! LaGrand had been murdered by the State of Arizona and the federal government had done nothing to intervene.
