How to use disparage in a sentence?

  1. Justice Antonin Scalia:

    The Declaration of Independence, however, is not a legal prescription conferring powers upon the courts; and the Constitution's refusal to deny or disparage other rights is far removed from affirming any one of them, and even farther removed from authorizing judges to identify what they might be, and to enforce the judges' list against laws duly enacted by the people.

  2. RJ Intindola:

    While you can see the beauty in almost everything; there are others that see nothing but ugliness in the world. They disparage everything and one must wonder, do they find pleasure in condemnation.

  3. Jeb Bush:

    You cannot insult your way to the presidency, you can't disparage women, Hispanics, disabled people. Who is he kidding?

  4. Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel:

  5. Meghan Markle:

    As much as I love and respect Meg, she’s got security and a publicist and can be protected from all that, she and Harry can tell the media to stop. The rest of the family doesn’t have that luxury. I love her, [but] she may not want me saying anything. I refuse to be a victim of the media. I’m not going to let them disparage me, embarrass me personally and professionally and not defend myself…. I can only hope she would respect and understand that… In fact, if I were Meg, I would probably put something out there so that there was some sort of protective mechanism in place where the family couldn’t be tortured as much.
