Infowars published the information, and as an extra precaution, grabbed a screenshot of the most incriminating page. This was a prescient move, because once exposed, the Facebook group quickly deleted the page.
But not quite fast enough:

Infowars adds that Jere Brower has a history of defamation-ridden anti-Paul posts, claiming the Congressman wants to “legalize child prostitution” and is “against children going to school”. He has characterized Ron Paul supporters as “clinically insane,” while also trolling singer Kelly Clarkson’s Facebook page after she Tweeted her support for Paul in December 2011. Brower also works for Google as a Field Operations Specialist, focusing on crisis management, social media, media relations, brand specialist, event planning, and event management.
LaCrosse Watchdog has also picked up the story, and identifies numerous other individuals who're part of the Facebook group, providing several additional screenshots as evidence.
Jere Brower has since fired back, claiming that Ron Paul supporters have communicated "threats" to him and his family, and insisting that it was all intended as a joke:
...was it a joke, of course it was. It was a beauty of the joke that seemed to take off. Paul and his supporters have been shown for the fringe group they are. We’re we going to do what we joked about? Of course not – these people have little regard for rules and order by the way they acted at the Georgia GOP State Convention in Macon last year or disrespecting Senator Isakson in Cobb County in 2010.
However, the response was published by Chris Collins, who is one of Brower's Facebook confederates, so the objectivity can be called into question.
According to comments posted on Digital Journal, Ron Paul supporters plan to confront anyone who shows up at a Ron Paul event wearing national socialist or Klan regalia.
