(Section 1 and 3 in the GPLv2).

Section 1 grants permission for verbatim copies.
A combined work incorporating another work is not a
verbatim copy of that work. So Section 1 is inapplicable.

Section 3 grants permission to copy and distribute the
licensed work in executable form, either the work itself
or a work based on the program. A statically linked work
containing the program is not the program, so the latter
permission is needed. That permission is granted only if
the work as a whole is licensed under the GPL.

Unsurprisingly, the GPL works here exactly as intended.

 And 'mere aggregation' clause

Your continued deliberate misreading of a clear term is
invalid, as it always has been.
