It’s often said that any statement starting “With all due respect” is going to be offensive and disrespectful.

And that Hitler guy was a hell of a speech giver.

The fact of the matter is, whilst I do tend to be tolerant toward other creeds, that was indeed rather funny.

With all due respect, I don’t think you’re due any respect whatsoever.

I’m not a woman, but I think men are the superior creatures.
