Question-Begging epithet

Subcategory of the Fallacies of Presumptions
This is when someone imports biased (and often emotional) language to support a conclusion that is logically unproved. The idea is to persuade someone using biased language rather than logic. Watch out for words such as “ignorant”, “arrogant”, “dishonest”, “stupid”, “gullible” etc.
