I think you covered all the reasons with a broad brush right there. In other words, ignorance or solipsism.

Had to look up what solipsism means. I thought it was a skin condition.

"the view or theory that the self is all that can be known to exist"

Didn't know that. I thought solipsism had something to do with eating slurpees and making a mess of it on your shirt.

because they think "Man, I sure do hate these bicycles because they are toys populated with happy grownups and I am miserable."

Spot on!!

because what goes through most peoples heads is: me me me me me me me me me and my convenience. 

^^^^^^^^ This. 

Because they used to do the same thing, double-parking in the right car lane when there was no bike lane.  Some people view it as equivalent.

Riding lake street can be exceedingly annoying with either buses and CTA vehicle parked in the bike lane, or getting tailgated by a car beeping at me because I'm not moving out of their way.

Most have those pesky Oak Park street parking permits in their back window, not sure it's just an observation or possible solipsistic mindset of motorists from Oak Park.

Their fares are too lazy to walk a few yards to the building's designated pickup/dropoff area.

Their fares are already standing in the bike lane yelling into their phones and waving their arms.

Their fares want to be dropped off in front of the front door of their bike-friendly luxury TOD building.
