Overturning or changing the government is exactly what every single election is all about, no?
And that being said and recognized, what exactly is political speech that people use in order to do exactly that, overturn or change the government?
(Remember, the Objective theory of the Constitution structures the government, precedes it and is superior to it.
And the political battles that goes on between the different political factions in the struggle for control over the policies, laws and direction of the country via the government is a necessary evil and can become very contentious, as we can all see where all potentials exist. In the end it will be the people whether they are fully informed and able to discern what the real truth is or not that will determine the fate of the country. That is the theory of the Constitution anyway and as we can clearly see there are those who seek to gut and or destroy its core Objective theory of governance.
There are forces in the population, in politics, the media, in business and in multinational / NGO organizations today both Left and Right but mostly radical Left that seek to discard the Constitution and not just seek to control the government for four years at a time, they want permanent control. These entities both Left and Right, but mostly radical Left seek to rewrite in their Subjective terms what structures the government. Two very different things and you must come to understand this truth. And you must reject it with extreme prejudice, or they will literally Subjectively own you and your family. You will become a Subject of their form of government. Your government today has sold you out and is attempting to deliver your country and your freedom to the entities listed above. Your good with that?)
Amendment I: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

If an emotional political protest begins peacefully but becomes violent and people are injured or possibly killed and buildings are burned to the ground, is that political speech? I would have to say yes, yes, it is. And all such things have consequences in law and justice and at the ballot box.
An emotional political protest (aren't they all?) may well become a violent and illegal event, but certainly it is still a form of political speech. And let those who became violent, whomever they may be, be arrested and suffer the appropriate consequences. In the real-world violence and property damage can be strategically used by those opposed to the protest and political speech as a way to pervert and destroy the validity of the political speech of their opposition and thus become politically advantaged.
Americans MUST have and maintain the right to have their political opinions and speech without the government and its aligned lawyers who may oppose those opinions and speech turning their political speech into a crime.
Why are these things set up in this manner as per the Constitution? Because the government of either flavor or ideology is a direct and ever-present threat to every and all political speech that opposes it.
All and every election is an attempt at the overthrow and changing of the current government, that is the entire point of the activity. And the Constitution structures the peaceful political process and transfer of power no matter how contentious or Subjective the politics may become and that is a testament to the intent and the value of the document.
