They can't.  "open source" is just a marketing campaign for free

You could argue that the concept of "free software" existed
before RMS or GNU.  That seems to be what you are arguing.

There, you're welcome to your opinion.

I'd say that free software predates RMS, but the free software
*movement* is something he started.

For those who believe RMS is the next messiah, history will conform
itself to their beliefs. For the remaining rational folks on this
planet, the facts will shape history.
