Abstract

While mass media throughout the world preach about the defeat of ISIS in the Middle East; Indonesia is carrying out general elections; namely the 2019 Legislative Election and Presidential Election. The 2019 General Election is a means for the public to obtain information about ideas offered by candidates before making choices at polling stations sound. But there was a lot of noise during the campaign period; when the winner was announced; and culminated in the riots in Jakarta on 21-22 May 2019. This happened because during the 2019 campaign period; it was still dominated by campaigns that capitalized ethnic; religious; racial issues; and intergroup (SARA); identity politics; fake news content and hate speech; and mutual mockery between supporters regarding non-substantive issues. Behind such phenomena; there are extremist-radical groups who want to take advantage of the situation; or 'play in turbid water'. Those who were identified as militant; hardliners; radicals and terrorists planned to carry out terror with ideological goals which they had long been afraid of. Identity politics is a new revival of the resistance movement against globalization. The issue of identity politics can basically be used in democracy as long as it is within a reasonable corridor while prioritizing the values of unity considering identity is the social reality from which we come. Identity politics are widely used by politicians to sharpen differences that lead to SARA; especially issues of religion and ethnicity.
