Yes it is important to condemn the initiation of violence in the streets regardless of the batshit ideas people have in their heads. I don't think we should allow the world's oligarchs to divide us into left v right, woman v man, white v black, immigrant v citizen, etc. Instead we should understand and care for the basics that we need for civilization to survive. One of those basics: give all the authority to use violence to "We the People" as a collective. Putin created an Antifa in Russia. Then he used his volunteer army of idealistic young people to target and harass his political opponents, whom he tends to brand as "Nazis."
