(Republican Insider) – A young single mother, Felicia Konold of Arizona, was on a road trip to celebrate the joys of being alive after being left with a broken back and half her face ripped off during a very bad accident in 2020.
But according to Gateway Pundit, the good times were about to turn very, very bad.
Apparently, Konold had never traveled before, so she decided to travel the country on her trip with her brother, all the while homeschooling her 10-year-old son. Sounds like a great idea, right? What could be more educational and memory building with a child than a cross-country road trip?
“When Konold heard that President Donald Trump was going to be speaking in DC, the siblings decided to add a stop to their road trip plan. She had never been to a protest before and did not really know what to expect — in fact, she did not even expect it to be a protest, just a rally,” the GP report said.
“What she did know is that patriotic Americans who loved their president were not often treated kindly, and that she had a little boy that needed her. She packed a medical kit and bought some extra protective layers to make sure she would get home safe, should leftists attack the event,” the report continued.
Konold had hoped that bringing supplies, combined with her veterinary kills, she’d be able to provide assistance if something happened and the event took a turn southward.

January 6th was unlike anything the young woman had ever experienced in her quiet life in Arizona. After all, the vast majority of her time was spent in her mobile home, gardening, and tending to her animals, and homeschooling her son.
“Konold still did not realize it was a protest when she followed the crowd of fellow Trump supporters to the Capitol. The door to the building was open and police seemed to be allowing people inside, so she went. She was kind and friendly to police and left quickly when she was told that people were not supposed to be there,” the report added.
When Capitol rioters started getting arrested by police, Konold assumed she was going to be okay, since she didn’t do any harm to anyone or anything. In her innocence on the matter, she just assumed those being arrested were the ones who were engaging in violence and vandalism, not peaceful individuals such as herself and others like her.
But a month after the events at the Capitol unfolded, Konold was pulled from her bed at gunpoint by FBI agents. They had blocked off her whole street by crowding it with unmarked vehicles. Her home was raided and a two page list of her belongings were then seized.
Konold also happens to be four months pregnant. She was held in custody for a week. And strangely, the FBI insisted she not speak to any other law enforcement agencies.
“Upon her release, Konold found that her social media accounts were all removed. She was even banned from the stock trading app WeBull. The media was smearing her as an “insurrectionist” and painting her to be someone that she is not, while all traces of her life and who she really is vanished from the internet. Without social media, it is nearly impossible to defend yourself from these smears. The media could now paint her as any cartoon villain that they wanted — and people couldn’t look at her happy and normal social media accounts to see otherwise,” the report said.
Konold recently gave an interview with the Gateway Pundit, stating that she would like to say that “myself nor 90 percent of the people hunted down and rotting in jail are who they are making us out to be. Through the tireless efforts of Americans, the truth will prevail.”
The expectant mother also gave two quotes she recorded in her journal.
“‘If we do not hang together, we will most assuredly hang separately,’ from Benjamin Franklin and ‘Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it,'” from the American Crisis No. 4, on September 11th, 1777,” she said.
Konold was also placed on house arrest which has made it completely impossible for her to earn a living for her family due to the fact she was a gig worker and local law enforcement claims that’s too hard to track.
As if that’s not enough, her ankle is sustaining damage from the monitor and she’s receiving hate mail. The young woman has also been banned from having any sort of communication with her brother, who is also being charged in the incident.
Fortunately, Konold is surrounded by wonderful neighbors who have been helping with grocery store runs for her since she can’t do them herself right now.
Her court appointed attorney does not seem all that interested in helping her prove her innocence, which does not bode well for the upcoming trial.
Konold is currently charged with conspiracy, civil disorder, obstruction of an official proceeding, knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
