It’s amusing to see how the rhetoric in a similar vein to "you liberals, if you don’t like it here why don’t you piss off to your Israel (optionally: America)", still easily imaginable in Russia, makes the Western media go into a fit and cry "racism". I am almost sure I heard a couple of years ago people in the media say something to the effect of why don’t you go to Putin’s Russia then (optionally, to Venezuela), if you don’t like it here in the US; and nobody minded much.
