Remember The Idiot College Student Who Swiped a MAGA Hat Off a Trump Supporter?

She’s facing severe consequences.


A UC Riverside student who stole a peer’s Make America Great Again hat off his head and refused to give it back now faces steep legal consequences.

A criminal complaint provided to The College Fix by the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office states that Edith Macias has been charged with one misdemeanor count of grand theft for the September 27 incident.

The next court date on the matter is slated for March, and the maximum penalty Macias faces if convicted as currently charged is one year in county jail, a spokesman for the DA’s office told The Fix.

The charge was filed after UC Riverside student Matthew Vitale, the student who had his Make America Great Again hat stolen from off his head, decided to press criminal theft charges against Macias.

According to the declaration in support of an arrest warrant, Macias told the officer who responded to the incident that the reason she swiped the hat was because it represented “genocide of a bunch of people.”

“She stated she wanted to burn the hat because of what it represented,” it states.

In a now-viral video of the incident, Macias stormed into a student services office with the hat and declared: “UCR is letting people wear this shit on campus? Make American Great Again, really? There were lynchings and genocide and mass deportations. … I fucking hate this country. … And I am not leaving. … We need to get rid of all ya’ll.”

After Vitale demanded his hat back she replied: “Fuck your freedom of speech boy, your freedom of speech is literally killing a lot of people out there, your hats like these that promote laws and legislation that literally kill and murder people of color,” she continued.

  1. I wonder if she’s a DACA? If so, when her jail time is done, deport her……with extreme prejudice.

  2. He shouldn’t let that school off the hook either. Along with that out of place lettuce picker he should have a couple of the school administrators joining her.

  3. (h/t All In The Family. with apologies, just this once, to Edith and Archie Bunker)
    “Hey, Edith.”
    “Yes, Ahchie.”
    “Play stoopid games, win stoopid prizes.”

  4. She said “fuck this country-I’m not leaving.”

    Followed by “we’re gonna get rid of all y’all. ”

    She hates the country and the native people here but loves mooching off of them.

    Like seeing cancer on a blood test. Irradiate this bitch until she glows in the dark.

  5. how typical,
    you don’t agree wit me homeboy?
    den i gutsta steel yo hat! and no you cant have it back!

    wut u meen I is in trouble now?
    eyes cant be in trouble cauz I is hispandix!

  6. I am all for “mass deportations,” especially if Edith is include. Please leave if you hate this country.

  7. This self empowered little snowflake should be in for a grand awakening. If she/it was in any state other than California she would be in deep doodoo. Being California she’ll get off with a attendance trophy and probation for a week.

  8. 💥 So if it was a WHITE MAN who ripped off a HIJAB, waived it around said your cloth represents “genocide of a bunch of people,” and refused to give it back, I wonder if the police and courts would find more charges and the university would allow him to continue with his studies?

    My guess is, no.

  9. It’s good to read she’s facing a year in the slammer.

    However, the system is out of balance. Sell the Russians 20% of US uranium for a few hundred million bucks and thus far not even facing 24 hours behind bars. The same unbalance for letting Pakistan operative be super user for congressional computer system with top secret documents, insecure Secretary of State digital systems, and on and on with other threats to US security. It’s like the story where someone kills a pet pouch who gets more jail time than the guy who kills the owner of the dog.
