Posted on 06/01/2012 10:25:46 AM PDT by ColdOne
Last night, in an interview with the Boston Globe, Elizabeth Warren claimed that her parents were forced to elope because her fathers family objected to her mothers Native American heritage:
"In the 1930s, when my parents got married, these were hard issues, Warren said. My fathers family so objected to my mothers Native American heritage that my mother told me they had to elope. [emphasis added]
Breitbart News has obtained a copy of what it believes to be Warrens' parents marriage certificate from Hughes County, Oklahoma, dated January 4, 1932. The marriage took place in Holdenville, Oklahoma, the county seat, located approximately 14 miles from Wetumpka, Oklahoma, which both the 21-year-old groom, Donald J. Herring, and 19-year-old bride, Pauline Reed, declared as their residence.

According to the document, the marriage was performed by Sidney H. Babcock, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church South of Holdensville, Oklahoma.
Typically, couples that elope do not marry in a church, or in their place of residence.

Another preposterous lie.
Ugly, stupid, and crooked is a bad combination.
And I thought Ward Churchill was a hoot. You know, I think about 1000 years ago one of my ancestors in Ireland may have had a child by a black man! If so I want my rights! I am sick and tired of being held down by the man! The test for fireman is racist! I want my additional 10 point credit because of my new found race! Where be my affirmative actions? I am Trayvon!
Wow, I see now, she is ashamed to white, I get it, well friends I don’t think Native American Indians of different tribes, like Apache, Sioux, and others will like this.
Since her proclamation, I have question - have she ever visit her suppose own familia in reservations?
I also know that each tribe has different dialect; can she speak fluently of tribe she says is she from?
Hmmmmmmm, she is on idiot simple as this.
I am sorry if I misspoke, this is just to surreal for reality.
I understand the Pastor had high cheekbones.
So either Warren has lied once again or, in the best case, her mom lied to her, in which case this might explain Elizabeth’s congenital predisposition to tell tall tales!
What a joke!
I’m starting to think she is mentally ill.
She just can’t let go of this Cherokee thing, nor can she stop herself from giving voice to all the “family lore” (ie. fantasies). She also seems incapable of recognizing that a majority of people do NOT care about her constant burnishing of her leftist, racial bona-fides.
Heck, I’m 6th-generation Appalachian-American, but you don’t see ME checking the box for racial preferences!
They had to elope because of a thimble-full of Cherokee blood? In Oklahoma people brag about their Cherokee blood. Including, evidently, people who don’t have any.
Probably correct. Its not hip to be White anymore.
Even so, its only reaonable to label yourself somehting when you’re 1/4 or more. After that, it starts getting ridiculous. Saying your 1/32 Indian should be ignored by any minority beancounters.
That would make her mother only 1/16 Cherokee, not enough to be officially recognized by the Cherokee Nation as being one of them. This woman keeps digging the hole deeper for herself.
To be fair to Elizabeth Running-Mouth Warren, I know of several elopements in which the couple were married in a church after arranging for two witnesses and a minister. This is not relevant to her creative writing project on family history.
A on this meditate I will...I see dark side of the force clouds everything, hard to see future is :}}}}}}
She is a liar, my friend my grand, grand, grand, grand, grandmother was in relationship with Emperor of China, and my grand, grand, grand, grand, grand, uncle was married to Japanese Emperor, and my relatives are from Royal Familia.
Yes, sure Madam, make your stuff, please don’t lie and offend true American Indians, they might be less respectful then some of us. And if you are ashamed to be white, well get some plastic surgery, but don’t assume of what you are not. That is not nice!!!!!!!
I’m totally impressed that “our” media is biting into this story like a rabid pit bull.
I’d love to see them investigate if Warren’s two adult children have used this ruse for college or job preferential treatment.
Oh my. Warren is the gift that keeps gving.
-—Another preposterous lie.-—
She doesn’t know when to quit.
