Lynette really owes Kenan and the community an apology, and a resignation. She mischaracterized his text to her last November by making it sound as if she had been threatened physically. When the text was revealed, she put up a smoke screen and said she felt threatened, as if she was able to read something into the text that wasn’t written. Maybe that’s how she feels about Blacks in general? Anyway, she’s not fit to serve on council.
You all are ridiculous. The country laughs at this attempt to cancel the voice of this woman because she was alarmed at his comments. Is this black hate against Asians. Don’t think so but She could make that claim just as well as he is making his claim against her. What a waste of time by the city Council. Wake up people and get a life. This nut guy needs to get a job and not be such a spoiled brat relying on his race in an attempt To make a name for myself when in fact he has done nothing of any substance.
OMG…. that’s quite an accusation. “Maybe that’s how she feels about blacks in general?” Come ON! You are proving her point, that we have come to a point in society where we cannot voice our opinion or have an open debate without someone like YOU making an racial accusation…. or insinuating certain repercussions, which is what Moos did…. a veiled threat.
Oh yeah….. and you’re a RACIST!
Ms Lee Eng owes Mr Moos NO apology.
She was supportive of BLM from the outset. And of the five council members she alone, a minority, spoke up and for others, especially minorities, in a city where whites hold control (to this day).
CW’s comments are false and scurrilous. Statements attributed to Lynette were in fact issued by Council members other than Lynette (e.g., Jan Pepper, Jeannie Bruins, etc).
Mr Moos is but a pawn being played by those hostile to Lynette and other minorities speaking up. That camp includes former and current Council members and their supporters, all with a long history of racism and hostility toward minorities.
There is racism in Los Altos, the Police are very much front and central in that, and Mr Moos has some legitimate reasons to speak up and out. However he is targeting the one person on Council who, like him, is a minority on Council and has a history of doing the right thing for all, including minorities, in the face of opposition from the other all-white council members and PD.
Instead of supporting Lynette Mr Moos has been manipulated by the others to oppose her. This needs to be seen for what it is: an attempt to shake down Lynette and other minorities using Mr Moos as pretext and pawn.
And Ms Lee Eng owes the community NO apology.
If anything it is the community that owes her an apology for allowing this travesty of a shakedown of a minority Council member by those hostile to minorities using Mr Moos as pretext.
Where were those behind this manufactured outrage and drama in calling out the City’s systemic abuses of housing and other laws (including Code enforcement), police misconduct) and such that were authorized, endorsed, abetted and condoned by current and former Council members (including their prior roles as Chair of the Planning and other commissions)? Their silence and tacit complicity then contrasts to their stances today. Lynette then and now was supportive of minorities, something Moos would do well to educate himself about instead of being the pawn in the games that others hostile to Lynette (and other minorities) are playing.
Ms Lee Eng owes Kenan an apology, and she owes an apology to the whole community for causing so much unnecessary division
If Ms. Lee Eng genuinely interpreted the comment to be a threat then she owes no apology.
Quite frankly this statement is threatening: “Your name will be all over the papers”
If someone was to say your family is going to be in the papers or in the 11 o’clock news you wouldn’t consider that to be a death threat?
Mrs. Eng owes no apology. BLM are domestic terrorist using a pandemic to hide there centuries of uncivilized behavior. Black people in America kill more black people each day than are killed by police in an entire year. Look it up.
Stand strong Ms Eng. Domestic terrorism should never hold sway in government.
