This "counseling victims to stay" and "stamp an indignant foot" is entirely a straw man. I've never heard of any liberal/progressive who said that people shouldn't move if they think they'll have a better life somewhere else. Maybe someone, somewhere once said this, but the idea that this is a prominent liberal or progressive position is entirely fictional.
