• Jason Mattera Talks Crapitalism, Jay-Z, And Republicans

    In a recently recorded interview with FreedomWorks, Daily Surge publisher and Crapitalism author Jason Mattera discussed rapper Jay-Z and his history of cronyism. Mattera also discussed the Republican Party and how they can lose their way and succumb to Washington’s culture of corruption.

    Mattera says he understands how some might be surprised to hear multi-platinum selling rap artist Jay-Z and Crapitalist in the same sentence.

    However, Jay-Z is a big time crapitalist.

    In 2012, Jay-Z wanted to make a real estate deal. So he “figured out a way to do it via eminent domain,” Mattera says. The way Jay-Z used eminent domain “was to build a sports arena which deems the land to be considered a ‘public use.’ And you can then get lawmakers to confiscate property.”

    “Jay-Z was the front man for bringing the Brooklyn Nets over to Brooklyn,” Mattera said. “Bruce Ratner is getting his luxury apartments and they have a glitzy new stadium called the Barclays Center. And not only were taxpayers forcibly removed from their land, but you also had the taxpayers of New York subsidizing this arena to the tune of $760 million.”

    When Jay-Z “had the opportunity to stand up for the little guy, to bring awareness to economic injustice, he was actually part of the collusion, part of the problem,” Mattera added.

    Mattera also talked about how “Republicans are part of the problem as well. They get used to the government paycheck, the government access and they lose their principles.”

    “The good news,” Mattera says, is that a lot of the corruption he points out in Crapitalism “can be avoided at the local level” of government.
