Humans are built to relate to others as the 'in' or 'out' group and we're experts at demonising 'others' who do not fit into the criteria of 'in' group. The news, social media, propaganda and dictators alike rely on this innate human way of thinking to create enemies where there are just other humans - humans who love, who cry, who bleed the same as us.
Careful when you deem someone as part of the 'other' group with dislike or hatred - if not for their sake then for yours as every time you manage to do so, you cut a little bit more of your own humanity and compassion off and increase your desensitisation towards the suffering of others, and nothing good in human history has come from that.
Evil isn't 'others' but our ability to turn our back on whoever we deem the 'outgroup'.
