Esteemed and courageous Founder of America’s Frontline Doctors, Simone Gold, MD, JD, made the difficult decision to agree to a plea deal regarding the activities of January 6. She pled to a misdemeanor for entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds.
Dr. Gold, an emergency physician and attorney who spent years saving lives, has never denied her presence in the Capital. Recently, Dr. Gold stepped down from her position as a Board Member with AFLDS, and is focused on building a nationwide system of health and wellness clinics focused first and foremost on patient care.
With regard to the prosecution of Dr. Gold for her speech in the Capitol on January 6, AFLDS protests a system whereby the laws are applied unequally, and notes that January 6 defendants are overwhelmingly victims of selective prosecution.
We remember that in the summer of 2020 there were months of riots - and the DOJ brought no charges.
We remember that in January 2017 hundreds of persons occupied the Capital, set fires in the street, burned cop cars, smashed windows - and again the DOJ did nothing.
We The People are not free if our judicial system is weaponized: deployed to selectively prosecute some and restrained from prosecuting others. Our judiciary must enforce laws equally without favoritism or vengeance.
America’s Frontline Doctors, the nation’s premier Civil Liberties organization, remains committed to our vital mission of regaining our lost freedoms and preserving all of our Constitutional rights. With the help of our tremendous supporters, we will keep fighting.
Dr. Simone Gold is moving forward with a renewed focus on offering options besides the broken healthcare system which hurt so many patients and harmed our national interest. Her innovative new venture for wellness centers, aptly named Gold Care Health & Wellness, will be announced shortly.
Our support for Dr. Simone Gold will not waver and we continue to stand with her.
