Jonathan Stumpf

The German Jonathan Stumpf (*1988) is a politician of the neo-Nazi NPD party, and author of various white supremacist books and articles.

Born in 1988, Stumpf has "developed" from a crude neo-Nazi active in the comradeship scene ("Heidnischer Sturm Pforzheim") to an intellectual racist, publishing books such as “The White Ethnostate” or “Fight for Survival” under the moniker Johannes Scharf.

After a childhood at Lake Constance and in the northern Black Forest he was working at sea and was an infantryman in the army. He studied history and classical archaeology in Heidelberg.1

Jonathan Stumpf is the head Nova Europa Society,2 whose website bluntly pledges “For a white ethnostate" on the front page. The site, which can be alternatively accessed via the URL white-ethnostate.org, hosts a manifesto available in several languages claiming the superiority of the white race.

Local news website Stonisi.gr reported that on March 6, 2020, a group of German neo-Nazis were arriving on the island of Lesbos pretending to be journalists, among them Jonathan Stumpf. Stumpf was attacked on the same day resulting in a head injury.9

One of his companions was the Identitarian Mario Müller, formerly active in the youth cadre of the neo-Nazi NPD party, who had been repeatedly convicted for violent crimes against political opponents. He is the founder and leader of the “residential project” Kontrakultur Halle, which hosts neo-Nazis, politicians of the far-right AfD party, and members of the Identitarian movement, among others, under one roof.
