Adam Newbold is the owner of C4 Coffee in Lisbon, Ohio.

Newbold recently posted a video to Rumble, first of all telling customers that he does not want to serve anyone who supports President Biden.

"If you voted for Joe Biden, don't buy our coffee, it's not for you," he said.

Rumble

"If you believe there was nothing wrong with this election... don't buy our coffee. It's not for you."

Newbold then continued to discourage transgender and nonbinary individuals or anyone who supports them from entering his coffee shop.

Rumble

"If you feel America is on the right track and there's nothing wrong with gender-neutral, don't know which bathroom to use or use whichever bathroom you feel like during the day ... don't buy our coffee because it's not for you."

In the video, Newbold then even claimed that he was present at the Capitol riots on January 6 that left several people dead and many others injured.

Rumble

"I was there, I witnessed the patriotic angry Americans chanting, 'USA, USA,'" Newbold said.

He also explains that he "witnessed a very volatile situation that is an absolute miracle it wasn't more deadly than it was."

Rumble

While asserting that he did not participate in the violence that day.

"All of my adult life I've been praised for striving to do good things. I've been called a patriot, a true American, a warrior. I have been referred to even as a hero and I've been humble and so grateful," he said.

Rumble

"The year 2021's a bit different. In 2021 I've been referred to as a traitor, I've been referred to as a terrorist, an insurrectionist and I resent it and rejected with ... every fiber of my being."

Newbold also encouraged those who disagree with him to take their business elsewhere.
