Contrary to the lefty hypothesis that nationalism activates prejudice toward outgroups...

Is there a citation for this broad brushstroke?

If I were you I'd try to stick to individual incidences of spin. When you start talking in broad terms it's very easy to stereotype.

Sadly, the fact that subliminal exposure to the US flag reduces outgroup hostility in the highly nationalistic has _nothing_ to do with whether nationalism "activates" outgroup hostility.

In fact, the raw data could show that, when unencumbered by subliminal messages, the highly nationalistic are rather hostile to outgroups (I lack a subscription, so I don't know either way).
