Some Things Never Change

I am currently reading Philip Dray’s There Is Power In A Union. I am going to quote a parenthetical expression showing how some things never change.

From the May 1, 1920 supposed May Day radical uprising.

But when not a single incident or disturbance was reported anywhere in the country, the press, so long complicit in the antiradical fever, finally turned on Palmer (AG), one paper suggesting that the May Day scare had been “a mare’s nest hatched in the Attorney General’s brain.”

The bolds are mine.  Kind of sounds like the anti-Islam fervor we hear today, doesn’t it?
