Many expats are very accepting of non-native English speakers when they struggle with English. Agreed.
But would those non-native English speakers find the same level of acceptance if they were in the US or the UK?
Totally. Just maybe not on some expat fora outside of UK or US.

I generally found people supportive in Romandie towards people who are learning local languages. If anything they offered help, encouraged. But our area is very international, so much that it prevents some newcomers from having to learn at times, makes it harder. I can learn three national languages where I am, every day. There is always somebody native and thrilled to share. Plus Swiss are patient tutors, usually.
