    「目の仇にされる」


    財閥は大正デモクラシーや労働運動では糾弾の対象とされたし、ニ・ニ六事件などでも目の仇にされた
    During "Taisho Democracy" and labor union movements, the Zaibatus were objects of denunciation, and were even revenged upon(?) during the attempted coup in February 1936.

    Let me suggest you to check your dictionary with 目の(かたき) again. It means showing hostility on every occasion.
