    Default Is Jar Jar Binks responsible for the creation of the Empire?

    In AotC Padme Amidala let him represent her in the Senate while she was away. During this time he advocated to hand Palpatine control of the Senate. He gave Palpatine total control and power, essentially elevating him to emperor status and authority.

    Everything that follows is a result of Palpatine, using the control which Jar Jar gave him. The Clone Wars, wiping out the Jedi, and the creation of the Empire.

    Jar Jar Binks also advocated for creation of the clone army, which would become the main strength of the Empire.

    Can the downfall of the galaxy be directly attributed to Jar Jar Binks? Was this intentional by George Lucas?

    That's funny to think about.

    Jar Jar only presented his opinion, the other senators supported it and actually passed it. If he didn't you can assume someone else would have caused the same thing to happen.

    So does this justify my unequaled urge to murder him?

    I always dreamed of Vader chopping off Jar Jar Binks's ears in Episode III, and Jar Jar screaming "WHYYY-YY?!?! MESA WAS ALWAYS GOOD TO YOU MASSAH ANAKIN! NOOOO!"

    Good, then at least I'm not alone! I'm actually laughing picturing that scene happening. If I were there in person I would probably die from the hilarity of it.

    He ruined Episode I, hid in Episode II, and caused the events of Episodes III, IV, and V! Episode VI was ruined by the Ewoks.

    Hating on Jar Jar is racism.

    Jar Jar Binks was awesome. I don't understand the hate.

    Who are you racist against and how educated are you on the concept of "races" and racialist thought?

    Serious answer, nah he was just a convenient shortcut for palps. The interesting thing is that no matter which side won the clone wars, Palpatine would be in control of the galaxy.

    But he was a cinematic disaster.

    unfortunately lucas forgot that when kids grow up a little they stop being idiots. But i guess all he cared about was how old theyd be when TPM hit theaters.
