Many of us as evangelicals are no better than the general public in avoiding cliches, caricatures, demonizing those we feel are against us. It is important for us to think reasonably and charitably as much as possible about where others are coming from. I think this models the approach of Jesus and Paul (Mars Hill, for example).
