The Dark Side doesn't discriminate
Jar Jar and Palpatine were co-conspirators all along.
Think about it — even years after we’re led to believe that Jar Jar is tricked into ending galactic democracy, he’s still hanging around with Palpatine.
Why would the most evil person keep such an idiot around while continuing to rise to absolute power, unless there was some alliance there that we never saw explained?
Jar Jar Speaks Out
Where the theory starts to fall apart a little bit, I think, is when Lumpawarroo arrives at the conclusion that George Lucas intended for it to be revealed that Jar Jar was one of the most powerful Sith Lords in the galaxy, and that this plot was going to be revealed in one of the prequels. Instead, they penned in Dooku at the last minute, static and one-dimensional as he was. Lumpawarroo also thinks that the new Star Wars trilogy will resurrect this idea and bring back Jar Jar as an evil character.
Personally, I think that would be the worst, most embarrassing idea ever. But the rest of the theory really does make me wonder… It sounds so wild, it might just be true.
Perhaps the most suspicious part of all is what Ahmed Best, the actor who played Jar Jar, had to say about all of this.
