“I want to make it clear that our organization will not tolerate any equivalency between those who demanded justice in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the actions of those on Jan. 6 who sought to topple our government.”

— Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera, after fining his defensive coordinator, Jack Del Rio, $100,000 for comparing the Jan. 6 capitol riots to the BLM riots in 2020.

Read those words and let their meaning sink in.

Thank God I’m not woke.

Not only does Rivera say there’s no equivalency to the despicable riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and the equally despicable riots in multiple American cities in the Summer of 2020, but he also says that no one associated with his organization will be allowed to suggest that there is — which is exactly what wokeism demands: Submission and compliance.

Again, thank God I’m not woke.
