If my regressive relatives were profit obsessed ferengi I'd be more accepting of their bullshit because at least I could understand their motives. Instead they're just misinformed morons who watch too much Fox News.
Quark preferred the company of Cardassians, Bajorans, shapeshifters, his dumbass brother, Klingon occupiers, and the Federation. It's pretty obvious he's just a Ferengi hating Ferengi.
Rom becoming Grand Nagus was his ultimate schadenfreude, a Nagus that looks to everyone what all Ferengi look like to Quark. Meanwhile, his pride was his nephew that joined Starfleet.
Quark will have to set his hate aside one day and stop force collectivizing his entire species.

This is the second to last episode of DS9, which means this was the climax of Quark's entire storyline: He has a chance to get the job he's wanted his entire life, but he turns it down because he'd rather be a greedy asshole in hell than reign in heaven.
It's a great ending for him, really: DS9 was the Trek show defined by character growth and change, and in the end Quark is the one character who refuses to change. Instead he's doomed to watch as the galaxy changes without him and his stubbornness renders him less and less relevant.
Wow, the right-wing metaphor really fits.
The Reggie Miller Space Libertarian remains a case study in the most laughably piss-poor costume design in television history.
I don't know, there's a case to be made for the 6th Doctor Who. A hideous, rainbow-vomit case.
