A Navajo fried who lives on the Rez told me that part of the continuous broadcast NASA put in a satellite decades ago included languages with stories, mathematical equations and the like. As part of the Navajo story spoken in Navajo by an elder the message says, "If you hear this and understand and if you come to our planet, welcome. If you decide to become friends with the people of earth watch out for the white ones, they lie to everyone and steal their land."

A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
Your "aliens are probably evil" is based on nothing except Chicken Little 'sky falling' hysteria. There's no reason to believe an advanced civilization has regressed as opposed to advanced in regard to civility.
Your assessment is counter to all known evidence.
ps. Hawking was not a sociologist. His "assessment" of aliens is meaningless. He was just complaining about the world being crappy, and that's all you're doing.
