Customer Question

I have been renting a room in this house since July 2014. On October 19th I came home from watching a presidential debate. The landlord, who is not the owner has been extremely hostile and accused me of all kinds of petty offensives, gave me 2 months to move unless I gave him sexual favors.
He does NOT own this house and has been bullying me for my prescription drugs in order to keep my dog.
The dog has been here since the beginning.
He is saying that since I support Donald Trump that I am a racist and must leave.
There is no written rental agreement.
His parents own the home and a winery in Paso Robles.
They have a lot of money and have no idea what is going on here.
I fear for my safety

I have texts from him telling me to move because no one comes out of their room because of me. And how I refuse to change no matter how hard he tries to change me. Also about the drugs.
I have photos showing the the whole common area filled with garbage
