How do you draw such a damning inference from a facetious one liner?

Homophobia and racism is more prevalent and accepted in Russia than the majority of developed Western countries though. They recently passed a bill in 4 Russian cities to ban "homosexual propaganda". If you don't think Russians are generally less receptive to homosexuality and other races than most other developed European countries, you're kidding yourself.
