The anger WAS among the emotions

the anger for repeatedly raising the issue and [for] preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles from ever beginning to heal

Down to B and D (anger - was)

D is too wordy and confusing. Hence B.

Anger for: 525 000 results
anger about : 234 000
anger over : 3 000 000.

Can someone says which is the correct idiom of the 3 above?

B....

I would say stay away from Google, the number of matches you get for an idiom are not necessarily correct.

Would go with B here...

"was" seems correct here as we are referring a specific emotion

So, what is the subject here? anger?

Yes, and also "among" usually follows with singular S-V agreement

(B)

(A) were anger for repeatedly raising the issue over and over again and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles from ever beginning to heal -- wrong
(B) was anger for repeatedly raising the issue and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles from ever beginning to heal
(C) were anger over repeatedly raising the issue and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles to begin healing-- wrong
(D) was anger about the issue, which was raised over and over, and preventing the wounds from earlier battles, still raw, to begin healing--too twisted and unclear
(E) were anger about the issue, which was raised repeatedly, and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles to begin to heal-- wrong

Its only talking about one emotion: Anger. Were should only be used if there were multiple emotions.

Between B and D, B is clear, concise and to the point.

Should be B

Very clear down to the B/D split.

D is wrong for a couple key reasons.

1. over and over is redundant
2. prevent (ing) to ~ is unidiomatic

B because
1. anger singular
2. // was anger for raising and (for) preventing...

What is unclear is : anger against whom? who is raising the issue?

B.

Good one, because of the usage of 'and preventing the raw wounds' it is tempting to pick 'were' as instead of 'was'. Took a while for me to realise that the sentence is talking about the emotions and only anger is addressed here.
