Bike hate group on FaceBook

Maybe this is old news but I found a bike hate group on FaceBook at:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Theres...0667052?ref=mf
The name of the group is "There's a perfectly good path right next to the road you stupid cyclist!". I have complained to FaceBook and expect no help there. Their moto is:

"No matter how far to the left you are, you're taking up my road.
My car is hard, and i am not slowing down!"
"There's a perfectly good path right next to the road you stupid cyclist!'s Photos - Cars are hard, cyclists are not"

There are reportedly instances of advocating explicit harm to cyclist but I have not chased anything down.

Any suggestions on if/how this might be pursed through the advocay community to pressure FaceBook to not allow a "hate group"? I'm not one to get upset about this sort of thing but this chaps me.

How about post calm, factual rebuttals?

How about we stop posting this stupid thing.

One thread is enough.
