The left-wing mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, the one who believes the best way to reduce crime is by cutting $1 billion from the police budget, never misses an opportunity to bash capitalism.

And when an oil leak in a pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico caught fire resulted in stunning images of a swirling surface fire, the Democrat mayor was quick to blame corporate greed for the problem.

And of course, left wing politicians around the world chimed in, until someone pointed out that the company responsible for the leak, PEMEX, is actually owned by the Mexican government.

It was nationalized years ago.

Here are a few of the Twitter responses supplied by The Blaze:
