Communist Sportsmanship

Angel Matos of Cuba was disqualified from his bronze medal taekwondo match in the Beijing Olympics.  He responded by kicking the referee in the mouth.  (View photo progression here.)  Matos and his coach have been banned from the Olympics for life.  

Obviously Matos' actions crossed the line.  Everybody would agree to that, right?

Not so fast.  If you're a communist dictator (possibly retired), you stand in "total solidarity" with these thugs.  As reported today at Breitbart, Fidel Castro issued an essay published by Cuba's state media expressing that solidarity and claiming that his country's athletes had been cheated throughout the games.  This, of course, justifies a kick in the mouth.

If only somebody would have kicked Castro in the mouth a few dozen years ago the world would be a better place.
