Not only "right wingers" but government operatives have infiltrated and
sometimes escalated protests, for decades.  The motives can sometimes be
transparent.  It is obvious the Trump campaign wants the appearance of
anarchy, lawlessness, violence, destruction in the US, to run on the "I
will keep you safe" law and order patriotism platform, to discredit the
Black Lives Matter protests.   Some of the republican candidates for office
in Washington State are now running ads focusing on the anarchy on the
streets. During the US Attorney General Barr House hearing Rep. Jordan
played an "unauthorized" video montage contradicting narrative of "peaceful
protests."  Of course some think the federal officers sent to Portland to
address the protests are a political ploy to bolster the Trump campaign by
escalating protests.  But other government more undercover operatives we
can assume are at least sent in to gather intelligence, if not incite
problems.  The Dept. Homeland Security in their fusion centers operate
rather secretly?

The Intercept published an article June 2, 2020 titled
"A Short History of US Law Enforcement Infiltrating Protests"
that offers discussion of some of these issues.
