Journalist Sara Carter fired back at a social media critic who attempted to shame her over comments she made on coronavirus lockdowns.

The investigative reporter and podcast host schooled the Twitter user who attacked her because she apparently chose to “bitch and complain from the comfort of a studio.” Carter touted the American spirit and shut down the critic in a thread arguing that “hiding from the world out of fear is not human.”

In a tweet on Monday, Carter reacted to reports that Arlington National Cemetery announced the cancelation of Wreaths Across America.

“Well this is terrible news,” author and Townhall editor Katie Pavlich tweeted in response to the announcement that the annual tradition was being cancelled due to fears of spreading COVID-19.

“We couldn’t even visit a friends (sic) grave under lockdown at Arlington on Memorial Day – only family … and now Wreaths Across America its absolutely unbelievable,” Carter wrote.

While many of the reactions that followed were focused on the Arlington news and sadness over the decision this year, one Twitter user chose to call Carter out.

“Go volunteer in a COVID unit. It’s easy to bitch and complain from the comfort of a studio. I don’t see you doing much else,” the Twitter user wrote.

Carter swiftly responded with a reality check about her own career  and the fragility of human life.

“Hey, I spent the majority of my career covering war zones on the front lines and in Mexico covering the drug cartels – I also grew up overseas and have traveled to nations where there are untreatable viruses and diseases that kill indiscriminately (including children),” she tweeted.

“I did so…without any medical facilities near and many times without protection. I think it’s tragic that anyone die for any reason – but that’s life,” she added.

“Human life is fragile – that is a fact. But we live life…what makes us remarkable is that we take extraordinary risks to achieve great advancements,” Carter wrote, adding examples of American greatness.

“Hiding from the world out of fear is not human, it’s not life,” she added.

“Common sense is the way to live and doing what’s right…for those most at risk. But locking down our society and terrifying our children with two vaccines already on the horizon is not how to handle COVID19,” Carter contended.

“We might as well live with masks on forever because there will always be something – somewhere – to be afraid of,” she concluded.

Carter’s response was met with praise for its “wisdom” and for effectively shutting down the critic, apparently a nurse who was repeatedly called out on the platform.
