Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer received a death threat after promoting an anti-trump rally on Saturday.

Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer has received a death threat after news broke that he is organizing a march from Queensboro Bridge to Trump Tower to celebrate “Queens values.”

According to Politico, which first reported the story, the message was sent to the councilman’s distribution list. His office sent out a flyer promoting the march on Saturday and someone on the list was responsible for the email.

“Rest of the people from Queens do not agree with your homosexual lifestyle,” the email read. “I will keep a close eye on your every moves [sic] so that when it’s time to execute traitors, I will try my best so that you [sic] name is included in that list of traitors. Execution is the penalty for a traitor, that is the Law Of This Land!”

Van Bramer has been outspoken since the election and hosted a forum earlier this week to connect community organizations with Queens residents who want to volunteer their time working with groups such as Planned Parenthood, Arab-American Family Support Center and other nonprofits that aid people who have felt attacked during the election cycle.

Van Bramer told Politico that the NYPD is investigating the incident as a hate crime. The councilman also said the march will continue.
