Are You really serious?!
"I will support Stalin against the claim he killed millions through genocide (as it is factually and historically wrong, hundreds of thousands died, far less than under George Bush)"
Pls give some facts about only thousands were killed!

Instead just google...for example "staline genocide" or "stalin victims":

The Soviet regime under Stalin decimated its own population.
Because of the availability of NKVD data, as
flawed as they might be, the numerical losses are easier
to summarize than the costs of Stalinism to society and
the country as a whole, which is such a deep, difficult,
and elusive subject that few scholars have dared to take it
on. Using the NKVD figures, between the early 1930s and
1953 some 1.1–1.2 million Soviet citizens were executed,
three quarters during the period 1937–38. Some 6 million
Soviet citizens were deported to the special settlements;
1.5 million (25 percent) experienced an “untimely death.”
During that period, as well, 16 to 17 million Soviet citizens
were imprisoned in forced labor, 3 million of them
convicted of “counterrevolutionary” activities. Ten percent
of labor camp victims perished in untimely fashion.1
These figures do not include the 3–5 million of victims of
the Ukrainian famine or of the massacres and executions
of Poles, Baltic peoples, peasants who resisted collectivization,
and nationalities who fought their deportations. Nor
do they include those who died in transport to the special
132 conclusions
settlements and labor camps or were killed or died during
preliminary investigations, detention, and interrogations.

Ouch! It seems I hit somewhere...!
Typical communist answer - when one can't argue, then attack and vituperate
