The Eclipse of the British Empire
by Tiffany Gabbay
By now, the outrageous story of Louis "Chip" Cantor, an American Jewish student who was detained and interrogated at U.K. customs, allegedly subjected to anti-Semitic slurs, and then deported to the United States, has made its rounds across the Internet.
While the details of Cantor's ordeal seem almost too egregious to be true, based on the U.K.'s policy of appeasement towards its Muslim population, I do not doubt this young man's story.
When I was a young, impressionable youth coming up in the world, I was what you'd call an "Anglophile." Despite being raised in a devoutly pro-American household and being incredibly patriotic myself, I was also seduced by the supposed culture and sophistication that, at the time, it seemed only the "European way" could offer — that and I was an aspiring writer whose literary idol was Shakespeare.
