Argument: Jar Jar Binks Was a Brilliant Sith Manipulator

Many Star Wars fans despise Jar Jar Binks as his silly comedic presence disrupted the dramatic nature of the Star Wars prequels. He was comedy relief in the wrong place at the wrong time.

But redditor Lumpawarroo argues that Jar Jar was anything but a buffoon who survived only through good luck and the mercy of the other characters. He systematically explains that Jar Jar was actually a highly skilled Force user, combatant, and political manipulator who was the true power behind the intrigue of Episodes I-VI:

Here I will seek to establish that Jar Jar Binks, far from being simply the bumbling idiot he portrays himself as, is in fact a highly skilled force user in terms of martial ability and mind control.

Furthermore, I assert that he was not, as many people assume, just an unwitting political tool manipulated by Palpatine-- rather, he and Palpatine were likely in collaboration from the very beginning, and it's entirely possible that Palpatine was a subordinate underling to Binks throughout both trilogies.

And finally, given the above, I will conclude with an argument as to why I believe it is not only possible, but plausible that Jar Jar will make a profound impact on the upcoming movies, and what his role may be.

The real Phantom Menace is not Palpatine and the Sith, but Jar Jar. Lumpawarroo argues for this with clear evidence.
