11 Reasons Why Petty Patty Patrick Hampton and Judge "Judy" Janice Gilmore Have Elevated My Virtual Ministry Via Their Sorry Social Media Smear
Remember what it was like in high school when petty people found ways to be relevant by being...ya know...petty.
Well, apparently, social media has only reinvented new methods for people to feel special about themselves by taking gossip stories and building "momentum" for their online platforms.
Over the last few months, I've been extremely critical of the modern Black Conservative Movement, mostly because the conservative/Republican base has appointed uneducated Black influencers to be the mainstream voice and face of the cause. (Apparently, this is nothing new. I really shouldn't be shocked by it.) And with such platforms, they use these voices to openly condemn and belittle Black people, all in the name of "helping" Black Americans.
Much of my criticism has been focused on Candace Owens' words and actions, who, despite being fiercely attractive and a slick talker, still seems to say things that make you wonder, "What the ...?" (Here are just a few of her statements: "The Southern Strategy is a myth"...racism isn't a big deal--even though racist high school boys threatened to kill her years ago...and the infamous, "Hitler had dreams." I could go on, but let's stop there with the buffoonery.)
Now, apparently, being a critical thinker regarding "leaders" among the base isn't allowed. (I must have missed that meeting when they dished out those rules.) Apparently, to be a Black Conservative and to have social media influence, you have to read from a Black-script written by old White Republicans.
You have to speak the same right-wing talking points, and any deviation from the script will result in a social media "whoopin" from the base's Black overlords, aka the BBBs: Black beta boys.
I had the "pleasure" of experiencing my own "whoopin" last week when BBB Patrick Hampton became so femininely enraged that I had deleted him from my friend's list months ago. (I seriously felt like I was dealing with a menstrating woman who couldn't seem to get her emotions in check.)
When I blocked him this last time because he just wouldn't stop "talking" or calling me names in my private messenger, he then managed to get on his other Facebook page to send me another message. (The beta-ness would not stop!) He wanted to let me know that since I had the nerve to block him, then I would suffer the fate of his wrath by being "exposed" as a rapist because of some articles he read about me.
Oh, Petty Patty...how stupid thou art.
Apparently, when a Black Conservative doesn't fall in line and worship the appointed goddess of the movement, Candace Owens, then it's time to bring out the big guns. (Or in this case, the beta guns.)
It's time to call the beta overlords to come out and give us back-talking Black Conservatives a "switchin'."
It's time to find whatever can be found that will make any Black Conservative stay on the Republican plantation.
It's time for...(get your popcorn out)...
Petty. Patty. Gossip.
Not only that, but Patty managed to get another Black Conservative, Judge "Judy" Janice to jump on the bandwagon, making the gossip even more enthralling.
As I write this post, I am reminded of one of my favorite high school movies, Mean Girls. It's the story of three cute girls who run the school based on telling lies about everyone. The only way they exercise any clout is when they speak evil about other people.
I like to call last week's "whoopin" a modern, and yet disturbing rendition of this film, staring old people...really old people.
Try to imagine a creepy, Black version of the film, where Black beta boy Patrick and Judge "Judy" Janice are your classic--yet seriously old--Regina George and Gretchen Wieners. (I'll let you decide whose part Patrick plays.)
And while such slander could have easily put me back in a state of anger and depression like it did 10 years ago, I decided to look at all the wonderful benefits that have come as a result of their sorry smear campaign.
Let's get started.
Petty Patty Patrick Hampton and Judge "Judy" Janice Gilmore Ponds: Staring in Mean Girls, Black Conservative Style
Since when did gossip become a thing for men?
For some reason, I thought that kind of mental sport was relegated to women. There's something really "off" when it comes to men wasting time gossiping about other people's lives.
I recall the story when Paul told Timothy: "Don't put young widows on this list. No sooner will they get on than they'll want to get off, obsessed with wanting to get a husband rather than serving Christ in this way. By breaking their word, they're liable to go from bad to worse, frittering away their days on empty talk, gossip, and trivialities" (1 Timothy 5:11-13 MSG).
I guess Paul should have mentioned the future of Black beta boys, who seem to now use social media to broadcast their own version of "empty talk and gossip."
I first came across Petty Patty back in 2017 when more Black Conservatives were making connections on Facebook. It was a really exciting time for most of us, because we felt this sort of bond with each other.
But after a while, I noticed Petty Patty would use his platform to "expose" godly leaders based on lies and ASSumptions (clearly something he continues to do).
I told him I wasn't following him anymore, because that mess is played out to me. I prefer intellectual debates that focus on ideas, concepts, and solutions. Plus, it would be different if Patty had irrefutable evidence to prove his gossip was true; but I see that was too much male mental energy for him to use.
What I discovered back then, and am now experiencing first-hand now, is that Petty Patty finds more relevance in discussing nothingness. Let's take a look at his past messages to me.
The first image is of Patty trying to convince me that some Gospel artist is a bad guy that Christians shouldn't listen to. She/he then went on to talk about other males and their sexual deviancy; and I remember thinking, "Why are you so worried about what other men are doing in the bed? Where's your wife? Go focus on your own stuff."
The second image is of him convincing me of his self-righteousness, which is supposed to be something worth honoring. According to Patty, he "blasts [his] own faults" while still finding the time to pinpoint the faults of everyone else. (What a miserable life to live.)
All this happened back in July 2017, which is when I deleted him as a friend because betas are so ugly to me.
Enter April 2019, and Petty Patty is back, this time telling me that I need to "push Owens up" and show my loyalty to her because she's a Black woman. And since I am a fellow Black woman, then it only makes sense to support her. (Gotta love that identity politics!)
I told him I don't support people who bash Black people. I'm not into celebrating someone just because she has the same color skin or the same private parts as me. I support intellectuals who read books and who engage with our communities, because they understand the power of solutions. And right now, Black Conservatives who choose not to ascribe to this destructive behavior (of belittling Black people) are being targeted by the base.
Of course, that's when he said I was basically a part of the "Owen's hate group" (I'm paraphrasing), because certainly it makes no sense why any person would disagree with goddess Owens. (Whatever was I thinking!)
This third image--and this one is my favorite--came as a result of Petty Patty being triggered by my final block. He won't tell you that I blocked him because I despise when humans resort to name-calling...but I get it. He needs to feel important.
Alas, according to Petty Patty, you better not have a "controversial" background because that makes you unqualified to help the communities. This beta had the nerve to tell his audience that he "almost got talked into partnering with me?" I've NEVER extended an invitation to him to join this movement...because I just don't like beta boys. Furthermore, I cut this beta off back in July 2017 and didn't launch my movement until 2018. So, what is he actually talking about? Things that make you go, hmm...
(I'm wondering if after Patty does her background check, will she apologize to me and her audience for the smear...or is that too manly for him?)
Apparently, it's OK for me to put down strong Black Conservative women like Sonnie Johnson and Tree of Logic (who I mentioned in this conversation), but it's not OK for me to criticize little Candace Owens, whose repeated remarks are like nails scratching a chalk board to me.
The worship of Candace Owens has become so intoxicating that now these Black beta boys can't seem to make logic of anything anymore.
Let's move on to Judge "Judy" Janice.
I first met Janice on Facebook probably around the same time I met beta boy. I can't tell you how many times she told me that she admired me and my work.
It wasn't until I spoke more about the hypocrisy of Owens and the Right that I suppose God stopped working through me. (Gotta figure out how to get that magic back!)
Apparently, on the base, if you dare ask questions or step aside from the script, thee spiritu of the Lawrt hath left thee, and you should not be taken seriously.
But for the life of me, I can't understand why this is so. You see, when Janice shared her concerns about Candace Owens privately to me, it was OK...but God forbid I should voice my own concerns publicly. Nope. That's a Jezebel spirit.
I get it. That conservative fame is like a drug. Once you've had it, you can't get enough.
Forget about doing things God's way. Forget about standing up for those who are being mistreated.
Nope, let's all vie for that special Candace Owens' magic, and we will save Black people from the evil Democrats...because apparently God doesn't know what He's doing, and certainly His prophets have no clue how to bring revival to our communities.
Nope...only Candace can do it, the same woman who never had any interests in doing things based on spiritual principles...the same woman who never had any interest in "targeting" the churches, as Janice boldly (yet secretly) declared.
Well, I guess because I refused to bow to such lunacy, the best way to shut me up was to push out this sorry smear campaign based on a criminal case God delivered me from years ago.
I imagine if Patty and Janice had this scene played out in a movie, it would have went something like this:
Petty Patty Patrick: "How dare that girl, Felecia, speak about Candace like that. Candace is a goddess and deserves to be praised, no matter what!

11 Reasons Why Their Smear Campaign Backfired and Propelled the Ministry Instead
I get it.
People are supposed to back away whenever a smear campaign pops off. Even if a story isn't a smear but an "exposure," the assumption is leaders and voices are supposed to lose their influence and crawl into a corner to hide.
I suppose if Petty Patty and his so-fetch companion had done this about five years ago, I would have done just that. After all, a good name is so precious.
But today, I'm in a different mental and spiritual place.
Today, I see how opposition actually produces a new level for me to walk in.
In fact, whenever opposition arises, on the other side of that trial, if I don't fall prey to the fear, is massive increase waiting for me.
At first, I thought about looking into the story on Petty Patty Patrick and "exposing" his mess on my platform. I had a loyal follower contact me the night of the smear, telling me of a time he convinced a woman to have an abortion, which is actually an ultra-beta move for any male. (I suppose he hasn't stopped in mistreating women he disagrees with.) She also shared that years ago, he had been "falsely" accused of raping a girl. (See how I did that: "falsely." Not so fun having it done to you, huh Patty.)
I thought about going in on him. But I actually like connecting with people who have scandalous, controversial stories, people who know what it's like to be delivered from all kinds of trouble.
And I don't want my audience thinking I do that kind of thing to people, because I know how difficult it is to walk in one's calling despite our controversial stories.
So, instead of going in that direction, I decided to share how they and their smear have elevated my ministry's influence instead; and for that, I want to thank them.
Petty Patty and "Judy" Janice, this one's for you!
Where are the Deborah-s and Moses-es?
Here's the deal:
Old people are supposed to be examples to young adults.
Young adults should turn to them for advice and wisdom regarding issues, especially when they are present within a movement. If anything, someone like me should be able to look up to these big brothers and sisters in the faith, to these mothers and fathers in the spirit who are supposed to know more about matters than someone like me.
Young Black Conservatives should be able to seek these elders for wisdom on how to do things God's way so we get His results.
Instead, social media watches as old people...very old people at that!...take a jab at a young voice who routinely teaches God's people how to engage and win during this end-time revival and national reformation.
Now, we watch as too many of our "elders" take a back seat and allow young, uneducated, spiritually inept "influencers" lead a national movement that was never designed for the ungodly to lead but for the righteous.
Fact: Young adults are meant to carry out the vision of the elders using our energy and enthusiasm to manifest actual change. The elders deliver the word of the Lord, and the young adults physically manifest the commission.
This is why I personally don't like being in the forefront. I'm too young for this level of national influence, but because no one is speaking the Word of the Lord as it relates to this spiritual and political movement like it should be done, I told Him I would go.
I will do it and will continue to speak until more seasoned adults take a hold of the horns of the altar, and start giving us the direction we need.
We have made the modern Black Conservative Movement a type of popularity contest based on what gains us more social media attention. We have become so engrossed in our own essence that we have forgotten that it is God who gives us the power to succeed.
For example, we don't even know how to engage in disagreements based on ideologies. Instead, we resort to name-calling, sin-shaming, or gossiping...anything to diminish the voice of God.
This is exactly why I framed my ministry to work with people who have crazy stories...to show them that no matter what, God can use them. In fact, I won't even work with anyone or allow any person into my virtual ministry who comes across as "squeaky clean." Why? Because those people don't recognize their need for a Savior or the ministry of the Holy Ghost. Honestly, if people want a list of my past sins, I will gladly produce them...but only after they have produced theirs for me.
But why is a 36-year-old woman having to teach this lesson about grown folks?
What happened to our elders? What happened to our leaders? And where are the men who would never allow another Black man to threaten a young Black woman on social media?
What happened to keeping our public disagreements focused on the issues, ideas, concepts, and actions? I don't mind you attacking my words or challenging my way of thinking based on data (I actually respect that); but to try and diminish my voice based on a "Suge Night" rap sheet that doesn't even exist?
Are we stupid or are we stupid?
At what point will the elder Black Conservative leaders say, "Enough is enough," and take a hold of this movement, which is completely fractured? When we will see them?
I look forward to the day when I don't have to be in the forefront and God empowers the "Mordecai-s" to take the lead. I can't wait. Because I actually love being in the background. I love playing my role as a beautiful woman, functioning in the grace I've been given.
Until change comes, until we see a shift take place, don't expect any major Black Conservative Movement to bring revival and reformation to our communities. Nope. Not gonna happen.
The only way it will occur is when each person assumes their rightful, God-appointed positions: elders leading, young adults employing. It won't happen until we do things God's way, and that includes treating the people we want to reach with the love and respect that is necessary to give us access.
In the meantime, as long as we have the Petty Patty Patricks and the Judge "Judy" Janices continuing to play the high-school, "so-fetch" games, trust and believe, we will lose.
Oh yes, we can get down when it comes to the petty games if we want to.
But understand this: I'm not the one to mess with.
I go hard for this virtual ministry and every member associated with it, especially the people who have a story far worse than mine. So, dukes up!
I will fight for them just as the Lord fought for me and my legal battle. And I will win. Each. And. Every. Time. I will win, because I don't know how to quit.
If you don't want me coming hard on you, then fall back when it comes to shaming people for things you know nothing of. Fall back unless you want to get burned.
And to those of you reading this post and you can relate to feeling ashamed of your past, listen: I am here for you. I will work with you. Your story will never be more scandalous or controversial than mine, and mine was spread throughout Internet land.
And our stories combined will never be more scandalous than Yeshua's. This is why I love Him and His story so much.
You have a message and a ministry that God wants you to walk in.
You have a story that will bring healing and deliverance to other people.
You are EXACTLY the kind of person God wants to use during this end-time revival and national reformation.
The hurting care little about "leaders" like Pumpkin Patrick, who are judgmental and condescending; neither do they care about folks who have squeaky-clean stories. That's boring and tired.
People want a hero's tale...they want YOUR STORY.
They want to see the struggle and how you overcame.
It doesn't matter if something was done to you or if you did something wrong. What matters is what you do with your story!
Take that truth, that scandal, that controversial experience and turn into something so powerful that only God can get the glory. And when people mock you or say all manner of evil against you, take your queue from me: Let the opposition come!
Because just as it produced numerous benefits for me, it will do the same for you. That's the kind of favor we have as operatives in God's Kingdom on the Earth. You and I, together!
I love you, Beloved! I am with you and for you. And if you run into your own version of Petty Patty, hit me up. I got more jokes waiting in the bag.
And as always, let's grow together!
Got a scandalous, controversial, or hard-knock-life story? Connect with me today. I will teach you how to take your story and turn it into a profitable business or a ministry of deliverance.
