University Student Wants Punishment For Student Who Stole His 'Make America Great Again' Hat

A student at the University of California, Riverside, was shocked when a fellow student snatched his hat off his head and refused to give it back to him. He filmed the exchange in which the hat thief tried to report him to the school's Student Life Department for wearing it.

Matthew Vitale posted a video of the entire exchange after a female student took his red 'Make America Great Again' hat off of his head. Vitale followed the student with his camera rolling and told her, "You stole my property, my 'Make America Great Again' hat.”

Vitale demanded the hat back, but the female student brought it to the office to report the man was wearing a hat that supports genocide.

“So this guy thought it would be a good idea to go into a conference wearing this f*cking hat,” she complained. “Look at the kind of sh*t he’s wearing, you know what this represents? This represents genocide — genocide of a bunch of people.”

Vitale repeatedly tried to explain to her that she doesn't have a right to steal his hat just because she disagrees with his views. He appealed to the people at the desk in the office to do something about the theft, but they stood looking helpless as the woman and Vitale continued to argue.

“All I want here is my property… I didn’t want to do this… I started none of this,” Vitale told them.

He continued to insist she give him his hat back, complaining she stole his property.

“I stole your property? Your ancestors stole this land!" the woman ranted. "Your f-cking freedom of speech is genocide, homeboy. Is that what you’re trying to represent?” the hat thief screams. “I hate this f-cking country!”

Vitale told her that if she hated the country she should leave, and the woman blasted him for assuming she was an immigrant and argued that she lived there. She then told Vitale he wouldn't understand, to which he responded that she's the one making assumptions because he's half Nicaraguan.

Finally, the Student Life Department staff attempted to intervene, to take the hat and sit down and mediate a talk with the students. The woman was furious that they said they would eventually have to return Vitale's property to him.

“Come on, like somebody f-cking back me up in this sh-t!” she argued.

The woman then moved on to threaten Vitale. She threatened to burn his hat, then threatened his person. “We’re so lucky we’re in a university... Yeah, we are because if we were outta here, I swear you’d f*cking die.”

In the end, Vitale got his hat back and the woman ran into the police as she attempted to storm out of the office, dissatisfied that the staff didn’t defend her for stealing the hat.

The female student, later identified as Edith Macias, posted a video of Vitale wearing the hat at the student meeting where she snatched it. “Wearing a Make America Great Again cap at UCR,” she wrote. “Youre (sic) making the decision to intentionally hurt people. "Make America Great Again" coded "Continue the Genocide of POC". You feel safe cuz (sic) you got the cops and politicians on your side. Youre (sic) not safe... just saying. We need to make racists scared. Issa movement y'all.”
