The host of a conservative radio show in northern Michigan has been kicked off Facebook.

“Trucker” Randy Bishop says Facebook told him he’d violated community standards.

Instantly, he lost access to thousands of his followers on his pages and political groups.

The ban came a day after a plot to kidnap and kill Governor Whitmer was revealed by police.

Bishop is a proponent of second amendment rights and is close with many militia groups in Michigan.

But he says he didn’t know any of the men involved in the terrorist plans.

“They may be members, perhaps and made some posts but I never even heard of these guys.”

Bishop says Facebook is discriminating against his right-wing views.

The company did not return interview requests over the weekend.
