After the husband of celebrity entertainer Pink shared a picture of his daughter, leftists erupted over the photo. However, instead of removing the photo and issuing an apology, the papa bear had three simple words for the feigned liberal outrage.
Thanks to the political polarization in America today, it doesn’t take much to spark a firestorm on the left. In fact, due to “microaggressions” and “unconscious bias,” nearly anything can be perceived as offensive by the social justice warriors.
Unfortunately, the internet allows for these liberal activists to perpetuate their outrage and gather online lynch mobs in order to shame, boycott, and even threaten the unintended offenders who dare stray from the leftist narrative. In this so-called outrage culture, even celebrities aren’t exempt from stepping on the toes of the most sensitive liberal crusaders.
Although Carey Hart, the husband of popular singer and entertainer Pink, isn’t typically political, he and his family have been inevitably thrust into the political arena. Incredibly, all it took was a simple video of the celebrity couple’s young daughter.
Hart, who encountered fame formerly as a professional motocross racer, posted a short video of his 7-year-old daughter Willow, who he affectionately calls Willz. Of course, it was what the little girl was doing in the footage that immediately caused left-leaning social media users to go on the attack.
Hart shared a video of Willow firing a .22 rifle. The child can be seen wearing protective gear while properly holding and using the firearm, showcasing her extensive training on the subject matter.

Haven’t poked the parent police bear in a few days. Willz and I shooting the 22 rifle. She is getting pretty good. Can hit a 12 inch pie plate from 30 yards. Started her shooting at 3yrs old. For the record non of us hunt, just enjoy shooting for sport. I’m raising the kids with knowledge of fire arms, how to handle them, shoot them, store them, and avoid them in uneducated hands. #knowledgeispower
Hart captioned the post, “Haven’t poked the parent police bear in a few days,” suggesting that he expected the outrage which ensued, according to Us Magazine. In the video, Willow can be heard asking, “Can I go?” before hesitating and questioning, “Wait, is the safety on?”
“Willz and I shooting the 22 rifle. She is getting pretty good. Can hit a 12 inch pie plate from 30 yards,” he added. “Started her shooting at 3yrs old.”
“For the record,” he added, “non [sic] of us hunt, just enjoy shooting for sport. I’m raising the kids with the knowledge of fire arms, how to handle them, shoot them, store them, and avoid them in uneducated hands.”
“#[K]nowledgeispower,” Hart concluded.
Like clockwork, the leftist social media mob pounced, expressing their fury over the idea of a child learning to safely and properly utilize a legal firearm. Within an instant, Hart was inundated with accusations of abusing, brainwashing, and endangering his child, The Blaze reports.
In the comments section on the video, Hart addressed the critics. One user wrote, “There is absolutely no reason why a three-year-old needs to be shooting a gun. It is just indoctrinating the toxic American culture that guns are somehow ‘cool’ and a ‘hobby.'”
Fortunately, Hart and his famous wife are used to hateful and vile comments from complete strangers. As such, the protective dad and staunch supporter of the Second Amendment fired back with three brilliant words — “You’re completely ignorant.”
Hart responded, “That is your opinion. I never slam people for speaking their opinion. I enjoy debate and shedding light on subjects that are sensitive like this. Now when you disrespect my country or ‘culture’ I feel I have every right to get nasty.”
He later added, “I think this is an extremely important topic of education,” noting that he also planned on purchasing a bow for his daughter later this year.
Hart fired back, “You’re completely ignorant.”
Hart went on to defend the right to bear arms, expressing his firm belief in the Second Amendment. He concluded that children need to be taught firearm safety as well as how to defend themselves from those who would use guns in a malicious manner.
Still, others expressed an irrational fear of guns, fantasizing that the child could possibly lose control of the .22 rifle and shoot her own father in the face. Seeing their utterly illogical responses, Hart refused to even address such inane concerns but pointed out their ignorance on the issue.
Hart’s unforgivable offense, according to liberals, could easily be cited as an example of the left’s “toxic masculinity.” However, his willingness to teach his daughter how to properly, safely, and fearlessly defend herself is a perfect example of how masculinity is vital for a thriving civilization.
Of course, the left would rather that our daughters remain ignorant and completely defenseless in the face of danger for the sake of what they perceive as moral superiority. Fortunately for this little girl, her father isn’t cowering to the liberal mob’s feigned outrage.
