More Multicultural Activist Obscurantist Nonsense

From QNS article: ‘It’s all just confused people’: Lack of proper interpretation at Queens Housing Court denies equal justice, advocates say, by Max Parrott, July 5, 2019

First of all, if someone is here illegally, they have no right to be here let alone take up apartments that should be for citizens, driving up the rents in the process and should return to their own countries. Secondly, a naturalized citizen or permanent resident should be proficient in the national language and fully assimilate to the local culture otherwise they have no place here. They may speak their native language in their own country and there celebrate their culture to their heart's content. Nobody asked these people to come here in the first place. The immigrants chose to come here and therefore it is incumbent upon them to learn our language so translators are an unnecessary waste of time and tax payer money. They deserve no sympathy in this case.

Secondly, never trust or believe a social justice warrior activist as they are invariably liars. All activists care about is eternally promoting their cause which is to them, the goals of which are never achieved, and winning any fight they get into by any means necessary. They are deluded enough with their cult-like fervor to believe lying in the name of their cause is a higher morality. It isn't. This is simply noble cause corruption and nothing corrupt can ever be good or moral. So these people deep down do not care about those whose cause they claim to champion. The SJW is a nihilist who only lives to vent his anger upon the world and uses the noble cause as camouflage for both as an excuse for conflict and to signal virtues to the world he really does not have.

Let's now look at the article:

"Queens has the highest number of non-English speakers in the five boroughs, with 26% of its residents deemed by the census to have Limited English Proficiency."

Welcome to Hotel Queens. We are not a community in any rational sense of the word but rather a borough of atomized ethnic and sundry identity groups none of whom have any commonality with the other. It is, in fact, a collection of competing groups advancing their own group interests at the expense of others. It was created as a concept by the city ruling class as a divide and conquer tactic to ensure their continuing unopposed rule and gleefully supported by self-destructive native fools. Not only does the insipid "World's Borough" meme destroy community cohesion by destroying our identity and obliterating the towns from which we hail but it cheapens residency by making it open to all, free and without condition or obligation. That 26% of the "residents" have limited (or no) English proficiency simply paints this borough as some kind of weird 21st century 'Tower of Babel'. Only the most demented of cosmopolitan wretches take any sick, twisted pride in this.

"Susan Vaca, an immigration advocate with QLA Outreach Center, came to Queens Civil Court in Jamaica on June 11 with a modest goal: to advise a non-English speaking client who was scheduled to meet with a clerk that morning to talk about a pending housing dispute.

Shortly after entering the court chamber, Vaca realized that her conscience was going make this task harder than she anticipated."

Advocate = activist = social justice warrior.
But oh, the crisis of Susan's poor conscience! She must act or else the cause of social justice will suffer irreparable harm! One has a hard time not vomiting when reading this sanctimonious drivel.

"In helping her client, she noticed another non-English speaker who had no idea when to approach the clerk. Then another, and another. Before long she was helping four Spanish-speaking clients navigate to their scheduled meeting."

It's as once said by C.S. Lewis:

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be "cured" against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”

Here Vaca treats these Spanish speaking people as if they were stray cats she simply had to compulsively mother. The Spanish speaking people in question are portrayed as if they were lost, child-like simpletons, not the competent, reasonable adults they likely are. However, in her opinion, they would probably be standing around staring blankly at a wall for the rest of their lives if it were not for this demigod SJW's intervention. Nobody would ever think of asking a couple of questions to figure out what steps to take or line to stand in without the divine Advocate's intervention. Almost anyone standing on a line will at least answer a question of what the line is for and a few more questions which somebody will answer gets one to the right place. Something adults can handle all by themselves.

Vaca said the main concern was helping direct clients around the chamber, but once they got to the appointment, she stuck around for their meetings because she was concerned the interpreter was not doing enough to make sure the clients understood her."

To a helicopter mom on steroids SJW, these Spanish speaking people would never to be able to speak to the interpreters all by themselves or make themselves understood unless Susan swoops in to save the day by lecturing translators in the fine points of their duties as interpreters. The difference between being genuinely polite and helpful and being an insufferably patronizing busybody is a fine but distinctly sharp line over which the SJW cannot help but jump into the latter side when they are not too busy hunting witches and heretics. That is if there isn't some other ulterior motive lurking in the shadows. So Vaca's presence was absolutely essential to ensure that the lower order subspecies were properly seen to.

An interpreter's job is to translate what one person says to a language understood by the other person in a conversation. Not to treat the former or latter like an idiot by making "sure the clients understood her" by perhaps by speaking extra loud, using only very simple words, exaggerated facial expressions and hand gestures. Here the liberal's narcissism and innate racism reaches their apex in assuming people who speak foreign languages are naturally too stupid to ask follow up questions if they do not understand the laws or procedures.

However, liberals love the idea of "the White Man's Burden" because they need to feel superior to somebody after all and the latent condescension is truly revolting. Even worse are those who try to profit from it by advocating programs to make the white man's tax burden even heavier. A modicum of respect and compassion is a good thing but there can always be too much of a good thing that can become bad. That anyone can go through life demeaning other people by grabbing them by the hand and leading them about unasked, infantilizing them in the process isn't praiseworthy but pathetic. To not recognize their own boorish narcissism as maternal instinct gone horribly awry makes them an object of pity who needs to get a life. But if this is done for self-promotion with an eye towards using the plight of non-English speakers to dip their snouts into the public trough by creating "programs to help" from which they would collect a payout is one who should be shunned and relegated to the ignored fringes of society. 

Then enters Sateesh Nori attorney-in-charge of the Queens Neighborhood Office of the Legal Aid Society who chimes in on something she overheard a translator telling a respondent about them having no case. Naturally, Sateesh is outraged (as if a SJW is ever not outraged at something) that a non-lawyer is giving the client advice only a Legal Aid hack may dispense without first determining if the translator was simply repeating what the lawyers and judge in the courtroom had told them. But never let the facts get in the way of a good SJW tale of outrage or sob story.

The remaining paragraphs from "Ethics and salary questions" on down is all about the sordid topic of coin. Here Sateesh once again chimes in on the pay disparity between state court and federal court interpreters and that affects the quality of translation. So the lawyer who complains about non-lawyers who unbidden, tread upon the fields of counsel reserved only for those of the priesthood of attorneys is qualified to comment on the quality of translation skills of interpreters. Cognitive dissonance much, Sateesh? I guess that's why she's only a legal aid lawyer.

Then we come to Florie Ho and her complaints that are essentially a whine fest of "I want more money" to be a translator and "competition sucks for me". Find another job then, lady. Then she attempts to make a case for why an interpreter needs a legal briefing to understand the complex legal situation of somebody didn't pay their rent when all they have to do is translate beggars reason.

The final paragraphs under "A stacked deck" does not in any way, shape or form make a case that the deck is stacked against anyone except the taxpayers of New York City who get stuck for the bill for interpreters, legal aid lawyers and court delay costs. If respondents are late to court whatever excuse they have it's nobody's fault but their own. Get your shit together beforehand. Or next time pay your rent, don't do anything to anybody that'll get you sued or if you're the plaintiff, then it's your case and your responsibility to show up. It's not that hard to do otherwise then just deal with it.

But in conclusion, for those who come to this country and don't bother to learn our language and dealing with civil matters and translation are a hardship for them, then they should go back to their own countries. Nobody asked them to come here in the first place.
