It's ridiculous, but given these Republicans and how censure has been wielded in recent years, it's pretty much become a meaningless gesture at this point, so it's to be expected from deplorable Republicans that have no legislative accomplishments, so they put up political posturing votes -- I think they call it "virtue signaling?" -- because they have nothing else.
