Threats seem to expose a political plot against the NYC mayor and the BlackLivesMatter movement.

When hundreds of cops from around the country and as far away as Canada turned their backs on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio during the funeral of Officer Rafael Ramos, the NYPD officer shot to death alongside his partner Wenjian Liu by a deranged gunman, they fired the first salvo in a carefully coordinated political operation aimed at discrediting the liberal mayor and shattering the ongoing anti-police brutality protest movement.

AlterNet has obtained emails revealing plans to organize a series of anti-de Blasio protests around the city until the summer of 2015. Billed as a non-partisan movement in support of "the men and women of the NYPD," the protests are being orchestrated by a cast of NYPD union bosses and local Republican activists allied with Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor who recently called on de Blasio to "say you're sorry to [NYPD officers] for having created a false impression of them." The first rally is planned to take place at Queens Borough Hall at noon on January 13.

Joe Concannon, a failed Republican State Senate candidate and current president of the Tea Party-aligned Queens Village Republican Club, is the main organizer of the burgeoning anti-de Blasio protest effort. The retired NYPD captain and former Giuliani adviser is a close ally of Patrolmen's Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch. Lynch generated national headlines -- and cheers from rank and file cops -- when he claimed that de Blasio "has blood on [his] hands" just hours after Ismaaiyl Brinsley murdered Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.
