I gotta ask.

Would you guys stay at a job where the owner has said some dodgy things (poor people can't manage their money, every employee will go lame on you, says Donald trump is a great business mentor)
Pays you well.
You like the people.
Office is great.
Owner is a bit of a prat, yells at people. Is a bit demanding. And by that you over demanding.

You thought you were hired for one role, but they had you doing something completely different until you complained because you ended up in a new depressive episode.

They finally agreed to change it after 3 months. They then  extended my probation period a further 3 months.

The owner's 22 year old son is my boss and told me last week that I hadn't been given any new projects because 'all the things going on with me.'

They hired a new person who is doing the role I said they needed and put myself forward to do. (He was hired after I suggested it as my boss and his dad were on vacation for a month prior...)
Oh, and this new person is the same age as my boss... And has NO marketing experience or a degree in anything related to marketing or advertising... yet he is managing their content... and calls himself a marketing manager on LinkedIn. *Facepalm*

If the only reason I was staying was because I liked the people and the pay was decent, I would definitely be moving on. I don't even mind the guy's own personal shitty views per se in that I could overlook that and continue working there as it wouldn't do more than piss me off *when* he made those comments, but when it bleeds down into my job (I.E. not going to give you work because of "what's going on with you"), I'd be all set. I would look for a new job and keep it hush-hush until you have one, then dump these dudes.

I completely agree.  Don't let them determine your career.  Be proactive and get out of there on 'good' terms.  Don't just move on, move up.
