What exactly does "Respect your elders" mean?
Like yes, I understand that insulting/yelling at them is wrong etc but I'm in a situation where these so-called elders have been verbally abusive, manipulative, and done wrong deeds that I must speak out against. However, if I ever tried talking back, even if I did so in a calm manner, they would call me out for being disrespectful.

Does respecting them mean allowing them to say/do whatever?
Is it permissible in Islam for them to act that way?
