Another viewpoint that a Forsaken character might have on the Gilneans is this: They were neighbours, they fought alongside one another against the Horde, they traded and lived together. When the plague hit Lordaeron, and the armies of the Scourge soon after, Gilneas shut it's gates and left it's neighbours to die. There was no attempt to rescue refugees, no military aid forthcoming for the survivors, just a wall and a closed gate manned by men who watched the dead wash over them.Perfectly sensible thing to do, it's not like anyone could have stopped the Scourge then, but I'd imagine a Forsaken former citizen of Lordaeron may well nurse a burning hatred for their former allies.

And the really intteresting thing is if your Forsaken is taking this view; At the end of Silverpine, the Gineans leave their neighbours good and screwed all over again, in form of Crowley leaving the Silverpine Worgen to their doubtless extermination to look after his own interests.

That's a good point, that would definitely affect the psyche of some Forsaken, just as it led some of the Gilneans with lands above the wall to rebel.Plus, that act of betraying one's neighbors adds to the guilt of Genn Graymane, making him a more complex character.

This is how I used to play my Forsaken character. She was incredibly bitter with the people who (in her mind) left her to the scourge and plague. She killed the refugees at the wall gleefully. If there is one thing Forsaken are good at it's being bitter.
