I know. It's kind of weird. I don't see it as hating freedom either. I think Americans gloss over the negative aspects of their history.
They debate and fly the confederate flag, and argue the finer points of the civil war. Yeah, it wasn't all about slavery. The Nazi Party stood for more than war crimes, but Germany doesn't make light of any of it. There are way more memorials and dedications to the victims of war and genocide in Germany and I cannot name one in America for the natives and the families enslaved. Different attitudes towards history.
