   That does not follow.

Yes, it does, if and only if you are permited to modify the GPL.  But
the GPL is licensed under the following terms:

| Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this
| license document, but changing it is not allowed.

So you cannot modify it, and thus you cannot make a non-free variant
of the GPL.
