In a symbolic protest, Antifa demonstrators in Boston, Massachusetts were seen eating "the heart of US President Donald Trump" while chanting “Kali Maa”, the name of a Hindu goddess.
The video of the bizarre act has been going viral on social media as the protesters burned US flags and symbolically squeezed "blood" out of "the heart" while also chanting "f**k Trump".

American left should stop using Hindu gods and goddesses for their propaganda. Kaali Maa is destroyer of evil and protector of good like all Hindu gods and goddesses. She is depicted as scary ruthless savage because that's how evil sees her. Maa literally means mother.— Srividya Sharma (@SharmaSrividya) October 20, 2020
According to Hindu religion, goddess Kali is the incarnation of Parvati, wife of the great god Shiva. She is often referred to as a destroyer of evil.
Against the backdrop of the election campaign, supporters of President Donald Trump often clash with anti-government and Antifa activists. On Saturday, Trump supporters clashed with the Black Lives Matter and Antifa activists outside the United Nations Plaza in San Francisco over Twitter censorship. Donald Trump promised in May that “the United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organisation”.
