(Although I think the movie's intent was that his resentment of Starfleet was actually a resentment of his absentee father.)
At this point of the movie he didn't know that Kirk was his father; his mother kept that little bit of info from him.
True, but Carol Marcus clearly DID tell David a lot about Kirk because David was familiar with him, calling him a boy scout. So even though David didn't know Kirk was his father, he clearly was resentful of the man who was his father.
A resentment that was created by his mother.
But his obvious resentment of Starfleet can't translate into a resentment of his father/Kirk; he didn't even know that his father was in Starfleet.
