White liberals have become radicalized

The mainstream news media keeps telling us that right-wingers have become radicalized, but it is much more accurate to say that left-wingers have been radicalized.

Zach Goldberg writes in the Jewish Tablet mag:
In reality, “wokeness” — a term that originated in black popular culture — is a broad euphemism for a more narrow phenomenon: the rapidly changing political ideology of white liberals that is remaking American politics.

Over the past decade, the baseline attitudes expressed by white liberals on racial and social justice questions have become radically more liberal. ...

“In the past five years, white liberals have moved so far to the left on questions of race and racism that they are now, on these issues, to the left of even the typical black voter. This change amounts to a ‘Great Awokening.’” There is no simple or single explanation for how this process got started. ... The years between 2012 and 2016 were a watershed for white liberal racial consciousness. ...

At the same time, there are growing levels of support for policies without such obvious connections to race. For instance, between 1965 and 2000, the percentage of white liberals preferring increased immigration levels never deviated far from 10%. From the mid-2000s to roughly the end of President Obama’s term in office, this figure gradually ascended into the 20-30% range. As of 2018, it sits at over 50%. ...

Along with the sweeping changes on race and immigration issues is the reversal of white liberal attitudes toward Israel. Between 1978 and 2014, white liberals consistently reported sympathizing more with Israel than the Palestinians. Since March of 2016, this trend has turned on its face. Currently, significantly more white liberals report greater sympathy for the Palestinians than for Israel.
If trends continue, we are headed towards Civil War 2.0.

The radicalization is not coming from the right-wing, Alt Right, or Donald Trump. Trump is the most centrist President we have had in decades. There is a systematic effort by leftists and lizard people to destroy our civilization and exterminate us.

Am I overreacting? If so, explain to me why they want to bring in more immigrants and migrants, after America has already seen the biggest invasion of foreigners the world has ever seen.

We have no need for the immigrants, and the immigration will not significantly alleviate any problems elsewhere in the world. So what is the purpose? What shifted the opinions of white liberals so radically?
