Mensagem: 

  Yep, 'por assim dizer' or 'vamos dizer que sim/vamos dizer assim'

 

  Meaning the person you are speaking to, might or might not agree. ´Cause you by saying this you leave the matter open to him agree or not. 

   He may once have been shown the door, so you are trying to get him sympathetic with your statement.             Hence the 'nearly everyone has...' 

 

..." (and nearly everyone has), we have been shown the door, so to speak."
