I'm trying to mentally describe someone who seems that they don't believe the opinions they say, but only say them on platforms because they know they will get a massive amount of support and praise for holding such a, typically common, belief.
This person may try to start an argument on the winning side when nobody was debating in the first place.
Ex. A man goes on Facebook and writes "Irish people are people, too!". They get unanimous support and praise because their claim is nearly universally supported by friends, but there was no reason to even bring it up as there was no clear indication that Irish people were not being treated as people, or he may have made up a figurative scenario. He may not even care about these imaginary people he described, but he knows people will agree with him and pat him on the back for having the moral high ground, and nobody can tear him down because his viewpoint is so not at all controversial.
