When referring to freedom....
One of my friends only talks of the freedom to bear arms.
Another friend only talks of the freedom to have christian prayer in public schools (though he didn't seem as concerned for the freedom of muslims or jews to pray in public schools)
A person I used to know often spoke of an unborn baby's freedom to live (though he didn't seem to concerned with the mother's right to life & choice...nor a murder's freedom to live).
Yet another friend says that freedom is the right to do whatever you want to do, as long as it doesn't violate the law.
In Cuba a man told me freedom was the right to have free health care.
A family member says that freedom includes the right to adopt "so called symbols of hate" if one wants to (though this family member also thinks that the symbolism of burning the American flag should be punished as a felony).
I know a Republican who said that he had the freedom of speech when calling President Obama names and accused Obama of being a criminal (but this Republican is very upset that people call Trump names and accuse him of being a criminal).
A Libertarian I know says that the government is violating his freedom by taxing him (though this Libertarian seems to like our public highway system and national defense).
A religious guy I know demands his freedom to believe his religious beliefs (though he isn't so keen on people who don't believe exactly what he believes).
An atheist I know claims that everyone has the right to believe whatever they want to (though she is strikingly critical of people who believe in god).
I read an article by a Vegan...this person said that humans do not have the right (freedom?) to eat animals.
The people in your examples are only interested in freedom for themselves.
