Some stand shoulder to shoulder with immigrants, those affected by the migrant crisis, the European Union, the economically displaced and less fortunate, the LGBT+ community, the international community, and common decency as a whole, and some would prefer to be as far away as possible from everything that isn't in their back garden.
So today, on this day of days, where we're voting not just on a single issue, but choosing a path that will affect ourselves, our children, and our children's children, it's only natural that people are fighting tooth and nail for the result they want.
