BSDs hate the GPL


No, it's just a different philosophy that isn't compatible with the GPL. While there certainly are people who do hate it for most it has nothing to do with hating.
It's like saying Linux hate non-GPL.

Exactly, preferring something doesn't mean you have to dislike or hate something else. BSD and GPL cater to different preferences, sometimes those preferences change depending on the type of code in question.
