The study of ideology in a media text has been presented by a number of researchers, but research on the ideology of society as individual representatives is insufficient. Therefore, this research attempted to explain how the realization of ideology, especially Islamism, in the public comment on the discourse of Jakarta’s 2017 Gubernatorial election in social media, which has recently been massively discussed. This research performed qualitative-descriptive approach with content analysis method which is based on a critical discourse analysis from Norman Fairclough. The findings show that religious ideology (Islamism) is manifested by society in its commentary on the election news of Jakarta as follows: (1) using the dominant vocabulary and terms of Islamic religion, especially the areas of aqeedah, sharia, and moral in order to discredit unsupported candidates; (2) using active structures, with the aim of further highlighting the offenders and objects of events that violate the Sharia; and (3) using passive structure, with the aim of further highlighting the events and forms of violations of the Sharia, but hiding the identity of the commentator.
