"First Amendment rights don't seem to work for the Right, while the various disaffected hate groups on the Left have been very successful at using the First Amendment to transform America into the disaster that it is today.

Eh. Quite frankly, I think there are quite a few people in this country who could benefit having some sense and common courtesy forcibly knocked into them.
One of the primary downsides of "civilization" has always been its tendency to coddle preening morons and allow their destructive and disruptive antics free expression.

Every once in a while, a solid punch in the face is really the only response a certain situation calls for.

The Left has held violent protests for decades now and have largely been supported or have received less criticism from the media. Now it seems many Americans have become fed up with their antics and are beginning to respond.
This reaction has been predicted for quite some time and could be the beginning of something much larger.
