"Yankee Governor with Southern Values" Romney campaigns in the South

(The above are some scans of a T-shirt that was sold by Southern Partisan magazine.)

This two articles mention how Romney is being touted as the "Yankee governor with Southern values." (Spartanburg Herald, in South Carolina.)



Of course with "Southern" values there is the implication that there are unsouthern values. The articles don't really spell out what "Southern values" are.

The Neo-Confederates are very clear that Southern values are reactionary values. I think Romney is trying to say that he has religious right values, but it is interesting to see how the ideology of the Neo-Confederates is being mainstreamed.

I recommend to the reader my essay on white banal nationalism at this link:
