* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: Unlike other Kevin Smith films that usually had heart and was usually somewhere in the middle of the scale, ''Red State'' is just pure cynicism.

* [[HaveIMentionedImHeterosexualToday Have I Begged For My Life By Screaming That I'm Heterosexual Today?]]: After being captured by the FPT Church, the boys scream that they're not gay, assuming that that's the only reason the Chruch wants to kill them, in the hopes that they'll be let go.

* BlackAndGreyMorality: With the exception of the ATF, everyone else is varying degrees of moral. Keenan and his men are just trying to do their job to take out what is, for all intents and purposes, a terrorist cell and save the hostages. Unfortunately, they have no way of knowing exactly who's a hostage, which means all three of them are gunned down regardless. Even the three boys, while not outwardly cruel, are clearly sleazy.

Added DiffLines:

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Well, they ''do'' round up anyone and everyone they even assume are homosexual and brutally murder them, but Cooper occasionally prefaces his opinions on women and homosexuals with "I know it's not politically correct to say, but..."

* {{Blackmail}}: Cooper tells the closeted gay sheriff not to send any backup or he'll send certain unwholesome pictures to his wife. He ends up [[TakeAThirdOption taking a third option]] by calling in the ATF.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The class discussion is pretty much all foreshadowing, especially the ending snippet...
--> '''Teacher''': And what is the Second Amendment?
--> '''Student''': (''in a very pleased tone'') We get guns...
** As well as when the main trio is talking about how one of the women on the website they're looking at is located in Cooper's Dell. Guess where the Five Points Trinity Church is located?

* GenreShift: This movie has it in spades. It goes from a raunchy comedy, to a ''{{Hostel}}''-style thriller, to a hostage/siege-type movie with a bit of action/shoot-em-up thrown in.
