This theory had me laughing and crying myself to sleep. I came up with the crazy concept in my own head, only to go online and see that on 30 Oct, 2015, Redditor Lumpawarroo put together a, dare I say, strong argument supporting the theory that Jar Jar Binks is a Sith Lord. I will link his entire statement at the bottom of this post.
Point 1 - Jar Jar is actually a very skilled warrior, rather than the luckiest bastard in the prequels. His antics and assumed flailing around in confusion actually mirrors the style of Zui Quan, the drunken fist. This is a legitimate martial art in which one uses his body's "momentum, deception, and unpredictability" to the fullest.
Point 2 - Jar Jar can use the physical Force. At the balcony scene in TPM, when Qui Gon, Obi Wan, and Jar Jar are attempting to rescue Amidala and others, The three jump from a balcony and attack, but Jar Jar screws up the jump. Or does he? We see him losing balance and hanging on for dear life. Or do we? It would appear that Jar Jar would fall down at the far right of the balcony, but we see him land on the ground at the far left.
Simple CGI error? If you look closely, there is one droid that fires at the position where we last see Jar Jar. Two others follow the path Jar Jar would take if he were to Force jump his way to the other side. One of the two does a double-take.
He also jumps, what, 20 feet into the air when they start going to the Gungan cities. Have you seen his legs? They're humanoid. His feet also wouldn't help him reach a height of that extent. He Force jumps, but the Jedi seem oblivious to this, which leads me to...
Point 3 - Jar Jar is not just a master, but the
master of Force mind manipulation, as well as the "mental" Force. A bumbling idiot wouldn't actually be brought along by Jedi on an extremely important mission. A bumbling idiot that was banished from his homeland wouldn't actually be promoted to general of his kind's army. A bumbling idiot would certainly not be elected senator of his people. So how does he do it? Mind manipulation, and he is a genius when using it, too. In his intro scene, there are tanks everywhere. All the animals are fleeing the area, except for Jar Jar. The tanks aren't that fast; he could briskly walk out of the way. No, instead, he flags down Qui Gon Jinn whilst in the way of a tank, forcing Jinn, in Jedi code fashion, to get him out of the way because he is such a stupid idiot. Jar Jar succeeds in painting himself as nothing more than a "smarter than your average bear" liability, allowing Qui Gon to let his guard down around him. This is how Jar Jar is able to manipulate a Jedi to let a walking liability come with them wherever they go. Those who use mind manipulation move their hand, both subtly and not, when doing so. Jar Jar is always moving his hands. Always. He makes gesticulations when he's being deemed "Bombad General," When he is being deemed senator, and when he convinces an entire Senate to end Democracy and hand power over to Palpatine. Another thing - why is Jar Jar Binks, the lone Gungan kicked out of the water, at the exact place Qui Gon and Obi Wan are? On a big planet, at that? Perhaps he sensed the Force dwelling inside them?
Point 4 - Jar Jar Binks is a coconspirator with Palpatine. He is not an idiot, so he cannot be used so simply. Jar Jar and Palpatine are both from Naboo. Galaxy-wise, they're next-door neighbors. If Jar Jar is the master force wielder, he would be able to pick up on Palpatine, and Palpatine would be able to sense Jar Jar. Something else that can be said for this is that Jar Jar is still hanging around Palpatine long after his usefulness. Why would the strongest man in the galaxy allow a living incarnation of embarrassment and liability, who can't walk a mile without stumbling or stepping in something, walk with him? Because Jar Jar is a Sith Lord.
Point 5 - If you go back and watch The Phantom Menace with the train of thought that Jar Jar Binks is actually a manipulative bad guy, you will start to notice how eerily he can be held responsible for everything:
>He is the one who "convinced" the entire Senate to give up all their power to Darth Sidious. >He is the one who made it so that the crew would run into Anakin.
>He is the one who spit an animal into Sebulba, who just so happened
to be the one to beat in the Podrace.
>He insults Qui Gon behind his back in Anakin's presence, so the boy would subconsciously pick up a disrespect of Jedi.
>He sewed the seeds for Anakin's infatuation with Padme, telling him she's "Piddy Hawt." >Although never directly seen on film, Jar Jar could be held responsible for the breakdown of Queen Amidala's ship. We see him in the back by himself, messing with something, when R2 rams him in the rump, because R2 knows he's doing something he shouldn't.
>He convinces Padme to resist the Trade Federation when he suggests the Gungans' massive army. >He is seen in Episode II, assuring Anakin that Padme has not forgotten him.
Point 6 - What Phantom Menace? Who is this elusive phantom everyone is waiting to find? It's not Sidious. Anyone who couldn't figure out that Sidious was the Emperor and Palpatine by Episode II is legally blind, or really bad at comparing facial complexion. It's not Darth Maul, we are told who he is. It's not the Trade Federation. Who is the Phantom whose revealing would leave everyone shocked? Jar Jar Binks. The Prequels were supposed to mirror the build of the Originals. We know of another goofball who was very annoying at first, but then was revealed to be a major contributor to the series: Yoda. Jar Jar is basically the Sith equivalent of Yoda, only he didn't get the big reveal. Why? Because of how badly his character was viewed by the audience. It could prove disastrous if Lucas were to have Jar Jar be the Phantom pulling the strings. So he was scrapped, and replaced with Dooku, a not-so-developed character, whose existence only mattered for the end of Episode II and the beginning of Episode III. Yoda was supposed to fight his Sith counterpart, Jar Jar.
Point 7 - Jar Jar being affiliated with Kylo Ren and Snoke makes perfect sense. He's probably one of them. Jar Jar liked Anakin. He is the one who sewed the seeds for Anakin to destroy as Darth Vader. Jar Jar would be one of the few people to know who Vader actually is, and unlike Luke, he wouldn't distinguish Anakin Skywalker from Darth Vader. All this being said, who would make a perfect candidate that would "finish what you [Vader] started?" Jar. Jar. Motherf*ckin. Binks.

All credit goes to Lumpawarroo. I simply transferred his information from there to here. I know for a fact that if I were to simply leave a link, less people would be aware of the truth. He explains it better than I, and there are some points I left out that exist in his work, and in the comments to his post. Check it out.
