i'm sure this isn't a genuine question asked in hope of an answer to enlighten, but here we go;
it's a dog whistle. the words themselves don't matter, it's the will of the group behind the words.
just like every single other motto held up by any other group in the history of history.
MAGA just seems to be one that, fair or not, has attracted a lot of attention as a rallying point for overt racists.

we still suffer from colonial genocide, the lands, plants, herbs, have been destroyed, taking over with industrialisation and corporate over comsumption, the fast-moving ecocide, the forced assimilation, we still suffer from all that, not to mention being tossed on Reservations, and the included stereotypical bigotry and discrimination we still face, and NOT from only white, or right, or "MAGA hats"
and my point still stands to regress back to a "great" part in "america" is a subjective act, it is an empty statement

Unfortunately, a large part of "MAGA" is selfishness, discrimination, and marginalization of minority groups (Hispanics, Muslims, LGTB*, etc) while stoking fear of "the other," the other being those groups.
That's the problem with MAGA.
