The 9/21/2021 post from Dai Thao below is the post that started the mess. Dai held that Mong Leng’s spelling of our people “Moob” is not standard while Mong Der’s spelling “Hmoob” and the Mong Der English term “Hmong” are standard.
Kongsue Xiong’s 9/22/2021 post below is one of his attempts to denigrate the Mong Leng word “Moob” by defining it as brain freeze/stroke.
Below is Kongsue’s October 5, 2021 public declaration that he is against the decision of the Hmong Advisory Committee to engrave “Moob” on one of the art stones, an act of insubordination and a show of improper conduct.
There are two images of the same post below. The difference is that in the first post, he ended the post with “… to make sure no other words can replace the word “Hmoob.” For the second image, he ended the post with “… to make sure no division among the Hmong people.”
What’s happened here is that he failed to cover his true intention. He got caught trying to sugarcoat his ill intention.
Dai calls a public meeting to be held on 11/23/2021 at Phalen Lake despite all proper actions that have been taken by the Hmong Advisory Council.
Kongsue continues his derogatory remarks about the word “Moob” in which he said that this word means a man without testicles and that “Mong” means stupid man.
Below is an even more telling post reflecting Kongsue’s bigotry and condescending views towards Mong Leng.
Kongsue continued with his demeaning ways by saying that “Moob” means half man and half woman.
An attempt to mislead Ge Xiong and to say that it is Mong Leng who diverted the attention.
Kongsue’s philosophy … “I don’t care who you are. I’m going to plow through you.”
Kongsue lied by saying, “I never said that I disagree with the word Moob.” This is a direct contrast to his public declaration on October 5, 2021, where he said, “I’m declared to the public that I’m disagree with the word “Moob” at St. Paul Chengsa China Garden at Lake Phalen.”
After all the failed attempts:
- Moob is not the standard word; Hmong/Hmoob is the standard.
- Hmong Advisory Committee did not follow proper community engagement requirement.
Kongsue now turns to blame his leader (Mr. Thaying Her), the President of the Hmong Advisory Council.
