A substantial part of Ohio fits this description outside of the major metro areas. For instance, in Circleville there were confederate flag everywhere and people sporting it on clothing along with their Hillary for Prison Shirts and camouflage garb. Doesn't mean they're bad people at all, just a very different subculture of the north that people don't really think about.

A confederate flag in a state that wasn't even part of the confederacy?

Not unusual at all.

I've seen them in Northern States from Washington to Maine.

They're pretty common in Pennsylvania and South Jersey.

It wasn't just one flag, it was memorabilia, hats, belt-buckles etc. Really all over.

It's not exactly unusual. The flag has been adopted in other parts of the country as a symbol of protest against the government. There were several pro-Confederate flag rallies outside of the former Confederacy in the period after the Charleston massacre when the flag was removed from SC Statehouse grounds. https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/...across-america

Utica NY and York PA are redneck? I'm not seeing that due to the general makeup of those small cities, which are quite diverse culturally. Once you get into nearby rural areas, it may be a different story.

Lol I'd wear a "Hillary for Prison" t. shirt and I'm not redneck at all. Hell, I'm not conservative either!

I was pretty damn shocked when I was in the Mall of America in Minnesota, which not only is it nowhere near Southern, but its in a suburban city of a large metro area... not country in the slightest, and I saw a whole rack full of confederate flag merchandise.
