I am having difficulty finding an example of a large fact-based public panic or large fact-base public political action in the United States.

Panic over Wells' "War of the Worlds" broadcast? Real but small and exaggerated.

Satanic Panic? Based on rumors.

Can you think of one? Or is the idea "if the public knew, they'd panic!" only found in fiction and lies?
