Arizona Marine vet who disarmed robbery suspect accepts heroism award in ‘Let’s go Brandon’ T-shirt

| October 27, 2021

We talked about this Marine veteran who disarmed and subdued a would-be armed robber last week. He was given the Citizen’s Valor Award by the Sheriff. His choice of attire for the solemn occasion is priceless.

Fox News reports;

The U.S. Marine Corps veteran seen on video stopping an attempted robbery at an Arizona convenience store has accepted an award from the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office for this “extraordinary heroism and exceptional courage” wearing a “Let’s go Brandon” T-shirt.

James Kilcer was presented with the Citizen’s Valor Award on Tuesday following the Oct. 20 incident.

Sheriff Leon Wilmot gave Kilcer the award – which his office describes as the “highest award for citizens whose actions warrant recognition” – for Kilcer’s “extraordinary heroism and exceptional courage while voluntarily coming to the aid of another citizen during an incident involving criminal activity at extreme, life threatening, personal risk in an attempt to save or protect human life.”

What started as a profane, anti-Biden chant at college football games morphed into “let’s go Brandon” when an NBC reporter seemingly misheard the crowd’s chant while conducting an interview with Nascar driver Brandon Brown. The slogan immediately took off in social media among Trump supporters dissatisfied with the Biden administration.

Kilcer was also wearing a red MAGA cap while accepting the award.

Last week, Kilcer told “America’s Newsroom” he takes his personal safety, and the safety of others, “very seriously.”

“I turn around to go and leave, kind of walk out and as I’m turning around I hear the door kind of open real aggressively,” Kilcer said about the incident. “At that point, the ‘spidey senses’ tingled a little bit.”

Three unidentified people entered the store with one armed frontman leading the way.

“I saw two other guys with no other weapons and decided that’s the guy that I’m going to hit,” Kilcer says.

In one motion, Kelcer grabbed the gun and without hesitation hit the other suspects with a bag of his store purchases, which he said included two Gatorades, two energy drinks and “a snack.”

“I was actually going to take control of his head and the gun at the same time, and the bag just happened to be heavy and attached to me and it smashed him right in the face,” Kelcer said.

While the gas station clerk was “a little worked up” about the incident, according to Kelcer, he jumped over the counter to chase the suspects.

Kilcer credited his Marine Corps training’s muscle memory of knowing what to do in such incidents in addition to being “mentally prepared” when the attempted robbery occurred.

The armed juvenile suspect was arrested and taken into the Yuma County Juvenile Justice Center on one count each of armed robbery and aggravated assault.

Semper Fi, Marine!

    I am the President Elect, and I heartily endorse this Marine’s choice of attire. (besides, who’s gonna tell him “no”? not me)

    “What started as a profane, anti-Biden chant at college football games morphed into “let’s go Brandon” when an NBC reporter seemingly misheard the crowd’s chant …..”

    That’s the polite way to say it. “Seemingly misheard”, my left testicle.
    I’d say that the presstitute was trying to “spin” the story so hard that I’m surprised that he didn’t lift off the track and gain some serious altitude.

      Well, there might be a positive side to that!

      “It’s an unusual time we’re living in.

      Safe at last.

      I took down my Rebel flag (which you can’t buy on EBAY anymore) and peeled the NRA sticker off my rear window.

      I disconnected my home alarm system and quit the candy-ass Neighborhood Watch.

      I bought two Pakistani flags and put one at each corner of the front yard.

      Then I purchased the black flag of ISIS (which you CAN buy on EBAY) and ran it up the flagpole.

      Now the local police, sheriff, FBI, CIA, NSA, Homeland Security, Secret Service and other agencies are all watching my house 24/7.

      I’ve NEVER felt safer and I’m saving $69.95 a month that ADT used to charge me.

      Plus, I bought burkas for me to wear when I shop or travel. Everyone moves out of the way and security can’t pat me down.

      If they say I’m a male wearing a burka, I just say I’m feeling like a woman today.

      Hot Damn… Safe at last.”

    Oh-he’s even better than that: he got in an “Epstein didn’t kill himself” in with an interview on Fox too! https://notthebee.com/article/marine-who-stopped-yuma-robbery-ends-interview-by-saying-epstein-didnt-kill-himself-

    Not all hero’s wear capes.

  6. 5JC says:

    I am skeptical of the Marine’s story. I am willing to bet good money there was dip in that bag as well.

  7. Graybeard says:

    Whaddaya bet the Sheriff laughed before and after the photo shoot?

    May ask Kilcer for a signed copy of that photo for his office, too.

    Yeah, the newsie “misheard” the chant all right. Sure he did. Donchaknow that newsie is cringing every time he hears or sees “Let’s Go Brandon”?
    Sweet are the tears of a libtard!

      Schadenfreude

    • Odie says:

      I’m sure a smile wasn’t far beneath the sheriff’s professional outside demeanor. Credit to be given for maintaining his composure. I’m sure it wasn’t easy.

  8. QMC says:

    Let’s Go Brandon!

  9. OWB says:

    Well done, Marine. On all counts.

    (Wonder if the sheriff tried to recruit him. Hmmmm.)

    Way to go, Devil Dog!! BUCK JOE FIDEN!!!
