Marc Stephan Jongen (born May 23, 1968 in Merano, Italy) is a German politician (AfD). From 2003 to 2017 he was a research assistant for philosophy at the Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe.
Jongen is regarded as a "party philosopher" of the right-wing AfD, having been called "chief ideologue" or "thought leader". He was the chairman of AfD Baden-Württemberg from March 2017 to February 2019 and has been its Deputy State leader ever since. In the 2017 federal election he got elected to the Bundestag.
Stuttgarter Zeitung noted that Jongen has failed to adequately distance himself from the far-right Flügel faction of the party, lead by Björn Höcke. Jongen also said that there are "differences in mentality between East and West Germany".
