It appears (at least on the surface) that things are indeed heating up between the two fringes. The far left, who has come ‘out of the closet’, and the far right, who want to kill everyone in Government. Actually, the one wants to turn us into a Communist system, replete with mass murder and labor camps, while the other wants to just kill.
