Is it ok to start looking for a new job after 6 months?

I took this job about 6 months ago with the promise that I was part of this great reorganization of this company. It sounded like my dream position & was what I wanted & close to my family. About 1 month in the person who hired me was no longer my boss & someone new came on. 2 months later there is a new vice president of the entire operation. I was told I was one of the last steps of the restructure, but maybe not. Then this new VP starts changing everything. My position that was just created is practically meaningless now. He interrupted me during a presentation I was giving because he didn't like my "tone." My boss defended me thankfully. A few months go by & he decides that anyone in my position can no longer attend meetings. My supervisor must go on her own & I must stay at my desk in case anyone needs us. Ok so now I don't know why they provided us with cell phones & laptops. He only made this announcement AFTER kicking me & a few others out of a meeting. Finally he announces there will be a new structure to the company. After they just restructured! So now here I am unhappy in my job due to a number of things: 1 VP makes me feel physically uncomfortable. 2 I don't feel like I have job security anymore. 3 I no longer am doing my job. I am now just an assistant to my supervisor. I update spreadsheets & schedule meetings for her. 4 I am beyond disappointed because I thought I came in here to bring fresh ideas but I have been thoroughly shut out before my plans even take effect (first 1 doesn't even happen until July). 5 On top of all this the people left after the 1st restructure absolutely hate me & my team. They feel threatened & constantly try to undermine us by creating rumors & telling it to their boss who then tells the VP. I've been here for 6 months & really hate it but I don't want to be a job hopper. I was at my old job for about 2 years but switched positions & came here. I turned down other job offers! Should I start applying after 6 months here?

I would apply other places. Seems to me like this company is not professional or something you want on your resume.
