Can you help me here?
I know there's a name for this technique but I need a name, nonetheless.
If I say to my audience: apostates are horrible, satanic, dirty, sinners, mentally diseased etc ... all hateful traits. And then I say: Person A is an apostate. Then my audience will associate all the traits previously associated with "apostate" with Person A. But I can say: I never said Person A was horrible, satanic, dirty, mentally diseased etc
This literally device / psychological technique has a name. But what is it?
