"Stupid Jar Jar! He gave emergency powers to the Sith! How stupid can you get?!" "I don't blame Lucas for doing this, Jar Jar is the only stupid person to do this." "Well done Jar Jar. Your going to feel suicidal after you realise what you did!" I have read many accuring posts from people that blame Jar Jar Binks for the rise of the Empire when Palpatine recieves his emergency powers to defend the Republic. Now think about that for a few seconds. Jar Jar didn't know that Palpatine is actually the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, and either did anyone else. If not Jar Jar, then it would of been someone else who pleaded to the Senate. If not someone else, then Obi-Wan, Padme, Windu and all the people who are part of the Republic would of died. Jar Jar was doing the best intentions at the best time, the Separatists would of walked right through the Republic without the defence of the Clone army. So my main question is this, how can some of you blame this poor Gungan? And why are some of you fixated on Jar Jar killing himself realising the future consequences of his actions?
